Younger State Cup Concludes This Weekend
With over 200 clubs competing in over 10,000 matches we now have our match ups for the State Cup Championships for U11-U13 age group with all championship games being played this weekend at Mary Grogan Park in Modesto.
Here’s a look at each individual game:
Barcelona Bay Area vs. Mill Valley Soccer Club
Sunday February 24th, 10:40 a.m. Field 7
This matchup features two sides who are looking to take the next step after qualifying for the semifinal round last year but ultimately falling. This year, Barcelona Bay Area had to knock off tough sides from IR Academy and Sheriff’s FC, while Mill Valley defeated Palo Alto and the Montclair Clippers in order to make the final.
Elite Soccer vs. Clovis Crossfire Grieco
Saturday February 23rd, 2:40 p.m. Field 7
With both sides moving into the top eight this year, expect this matchup to go down to the wire as both sides have a strong case to claim the championship. In the end, only one team will lift the trophy, but both sides will surely be happy with the incredible run they’ve made to get this far.
MCS ECFC Real Madrid vs. Ajax United Academy
Sunday February 24th, 12:30 p.m. Field 2
After losing in the final last year, MCS ECFC Real Madrid is back and will look to capture a prize that was just out of their reach in 2018. Standing in their way will be a tough Ajax United Academy side that didn’t compete last year in the State Cup, but will look to end their year back in the competition on top.
Stockton Storm IC vs California Thorns
Saturday February 23rd, 10:40 a.m. Field 6
Of these two squads, Stockton Storm IC comes in with arguably more experience, having been in the last eight teams in 2018. But don’t count out the California Thorns, who will look to stifle a strong Storm attack that has gotten them this far.
PSV Union vs. IR Academy Purple
Sunday February 24th, 2:40 p.m. Field 6
Coming into this match, IR Academy Purple will look to defend their title from last year after making another dream run to the final. Meanwhile, first-year State Cup squad PSV Union will be keen to dethrone the current champion and should pose a serious risk to IR repeating their title.
MVLA Roma ECNL vs San Juan Spirits ECNL
Saturday February 23rd, 12:30 p.m. Field 2
A Premier 2 level team last year, MVLA Roma ECNL jumped up to the State division and din’t miss a beat in qualifying for this year’s final. Meanwhile, standing in their way of completing a dream run to lift the trophy are San Juan Spirits ECNL, who are looking to defend their title from last year.
