FC Stars Sends Two Teams to ECNL National Finals!!

The U15G and U16G FC Stars ECNL teams had outstanding performances at the ECNL Champions League Play-Offs in San Diego, CA.  Both teams qualified as winner of their four-team brackets to face a quarter-final game to advance to the ECNL National Championships and were ultimately successful and will represent the club next week at the Maryland Sportsplex in Germantown, Maryland.  FC Stars was one of only two clubs to send multiple teams to the National Championships. Congratulations to both teams on this great achievement! 

The U15G Stars ECNL team started off their campaign with an amazing 5-4 victory over Eclipse Select from Illinois, then follwed up with a more comfortable 3-1 win over San Juan SC.  Results elsewhere meant that the U15G Stars team was already assured of progress as winner of the group and the third game was a dead rubber that finished with FC Stars losing 0-2 to pre-tournament favorite, Solar, in the last game.  As winner of the bracket, the U15G faced local rivals, FC Boston, for a place at the National Champioships. With a dominant performance translating into a 3-0 victory, the U15s were on their way to Nationals!  Potential semi-final opponents are Slammers, West Coast and Mustang.

The U16G ECNL team also had a tough path to Nationals starting with a 2-1 win over FC Dallas, followed by a terrific 4-0 victroy over DeAnza Force.  Results elsewhere meant then FC Stars were tied on 6 points with SoCal Blues, but Blues had a one goal advantage in goal differential, and Stars would need to win the final match in the bracket against Blues, widely regarded as one of the best teams in the country.  In an intensely competitive match, Stars prevailed 2-0 to set up a quarter-final match with perennial contenders, Eclipise Select.  The U16s played with intense desire for a 1-0 victory over Eclipse to clinch their berth at the National Championships. Potential semi-final opponents are PDA, Crossfire and Real Colorado.
