Congratulations to our CESA 96 and 98 Boys Premier on making it to the Regional Final and our CESA 96/97 Girls Premier on winining the Regional Championship. The 96 Boys lost 2-0 in the Final to FC Florida while the 98 Boys lost a heartbreaker in pks to CASL. We are very proud of the accomplishments of the boys and Coach Nick, Coach Russell, and Coach Keith.
The girls went undefeated in group play finishing at the top of their bracket after scoring 16 goals in group play and giving up just 1 on the way to the semifinal. In the semifinal against Brownsville United from South Texas, the girls scored 3 first half goals to secure a 3-0 victory and a berth in the Regional Final. In the Final, the girls played TFCA Alliance out of North Carolin a team they had previously beaten 2-0 in group play. After a scoreless first half, the girls came out firing and scored 2 goals to secure the Region Championship. CESA's Miranda Weslake led all U19 scorers with 7 goals in the tournament.
The girls will travel to Frisco, TX July 25-31 to represent Region III at the National Championships. The other teams in the bracket include McLean 96 Green (VA-Region I), Red Stars (IL-Region II), and So Cal Blues Dodge (CA-S-Region IV). Good luck to Coach Jeff and the girls!
