Team Pugg

Team Pugg edged a thrilling final to claim silverware in Oceanfront, Virginia Beach at the weekend.

Team Pugg claimed the U.S Open at the North American Sand Soccer Championships on Sunday with a dramatic sudden death penalty win over FBS FC.
The finale offered a fitting end to a thrilling few days of beach soccer action that saw impressive crowds flock to Oceanfront for both the U.S. Open as well as dozens of other male and female events across various age groups.
Pugg were relatively slow burners to begin with in the tournament and were actually beaten by FBS in the group stage, while taking six points from Portland BSC and McLean BSC.
