The Tennessee SC 19 Boys had an unusual weekend dealing with rainy weather and very sloppy fields at the Open Cup in Decatur, AL. The boys learned to deal with adversity and qualified for the Finals in the highest U14 boys flight by playing teams from Alabama, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
In the finals, the boys played a tough game against CP Monterrey Rayados from Mexico. It was a fantastic experience for the boys to manage the team's speed and style, despite the rough fields and the fact that several players were missing from the weekend due to injuries and high school commitments.
The Tennessee SC 19 Boys clinched the Region III Premier League Central Division for U14 Boys today, after winning their games against the Alabama teams, 5-0 and 5-0. The boys have gone undefeated in eight games and have one remaining with Chattanooga FC.
By winning the PLC, the boys will play in Southern Regionals, the Region III tournament, in June and have qualified for Regional Premier League next year.
The Tennessee SC 19 Boys traveled to the Atlanta area for the GSA Adidas Invitational tournament this past weekend and came home as Finalists. With a shortened roster, the boys lost to Region III champions, GSA Premier, in the finals.
The team was fortunate to play a full schedule as heavy rain closed many of the other tournament venues on Saturday.
This event was an excellent preparation for several competitive PLC and BCC games in January, right after the holidays.
The Tennessee SC 19 Boys had a fantastic weekend, even despite losing the State Cup. The boys dominated play in all three hard-fought games.
On Friday night, they tied a focused TUSC team, 1-1.
The weekend got interesting and anxious when the boys entered Saturday's game knowing they had to win by four goals to advance. (Or they could have gone to PKs if they won 3-0.) They scored only one goal in the first half despite several chances. The second half was again full of near misses and pressing play, resulting in three goals with the last one coming in under a minute of remaining time.
Sunday's final against Lobos was full of shots on goal with some hitting the posts, but despite the strong play, the 19 Boys weren't able to convert and lost in PKs.
As Finalists, Tennessee SC 19 automatically qualify for next year's State Championships and the Central Division of the Southern Regional Premier League (PLC).
Winning the State Cup would have qualified the boys for the Southern Regionals tournament in Little Rock next June. However, with two wins in their remaining three PLC games, the boys will win PLC, which puts them in Southern Regionals and advances them to Southern Regional Premier League (RPL) next year.
