The South County Storm, our U14 girls team won the RI State Cup Championships over the weekend at <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />DeerfieldPark in Smithfield. The tournament is the most prestigious one that Soccer RI puts on as the winners get to represent RI in the National Championship series. As a result, our U14 girls will represent South, and RI in late June and early July in the Region One National Championships.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The Storm win came after a few weeks of qualifying matches and then the semi finals and finals held over the weekend. They went undefeated in the tournament and beat Black Watch Premier in the championship match yesterday, 4-1. All matches were played with 13 players due to a number of injuries sustained by players over the season. It was a great effort by these girls against a field that included Bayside Premier, Bruno Premier, Rams FC Premier, Lusitania Premier, Black Watch Premier and others.
The SC Storm is the #1 ranked U14 girls team in the State of RI (and were the #1 ranked U13 in RI) and this state championship will solidify that position. In addition, our South girls were the only girls team in RI to win the State Cup Championship that were not a premier club.
Congratulations to Jon Dodd (coach), Bill Pizoli (coach) and Lisa Ahava (team manager) but mostly to all the girls for a great effort and for making SCYSC proud. Good luck in the Region One National Championships!
