Week 1

Boys U12

 

 VS

New River United 07 Boys Skyline takes on the VA 07B Rush this week in a fantastic matchup. Both teams look to continue their hot streak this spring. NRU is currently placed 1st in the Skyline League, and that can be attributed to their resiliency. NRU’s Jack H. stated, “We don't give up.  In past years, when we'd be down goals, we'd give up. But now, if we are down, we keep going.  I think that is a big reason for our success.” The Rush just placed as a semi-finalist in the competitive Jefferson Cup. These young teams are looking to make a statement in their inaugural State Cup.

FC Richmond U13 Magic is competitively matched up with Fredericksburg FC 2006 Boys Black. FC Richmond was a recent finalist at the Largo March Madness Soccer Shootout, while FFC just won the St. Patrick’s Day Invitational. FFC Coach, Alex Rebeiz, says the team mindset is that "being successful is no accident but hard work and perseverance. So come to every game with a positive mindset, ready to play and enjoy yourself". Both teams are hungry to make an improvement on last year, when they were both eliminated in the first round.

LMVSC GU12 is going head to head with Golden Ball Soccer GU12. Golden Ball Soccer is looking to continue their success after winning the recent President’s Day Cup and Showcase. LMVSC is looking to avenge their recent semi-final loss at the Arlington Spring Invitational with some quality wins in The State Cup. Manager Toni Freeland said, “the girls (LMVSC) work extremely and fight for every single possession on the field. Their game play, combination passing and 1v1 play have been improving throughout the season and I can attribute that to them having more confidence in themselves!”

This key matchup highlights SYC Pride 06 Blue against Barca Academy NoVa 2006G Garnet. SYC looks to improve on last year when they lost in the first round of The State Cup play. Barca Academy is a new team on the scene and looks to make a name for themselves in The State Cup ranks. Expect a great game between two teams who have something to prove.

Girls U14

No U14 games this week.




One of our notable newcomers is South County Athletic Association (SCAA) 07 Green, coached by Alex Pinto, an assistant coach for the 2003 Boys Virginia ODP team.  SCAA Team Manager, Michael Potts said “…it’s new to myself and the players. We are all looking forward to the experience”.

          

SCAA’s preparation for this competition has been nothing less than adequate, Potts added “In addition to our normal pre-season training, we have played in the Arlington ASIST tournament and the McLean Premier Cup as preparation. In our practices we continue to work on our fundamentals, with additional emphasis on fitness knowing that we will have back-to-back games some weekends (State Cup and NCSL).” The team is “looking forward to playing against some of the best teams in Virginia, and seeing where we are, and where we need to be as the boys continue to train and grow as players and as a team.”

 

Look for VYSA’s highlight of returning competition and #THEStateCup Match Previews, coming next week! We’ll be keeping you up with key competitions leading up to the Virginia National Championship Series Finals held May 18th and 19th at the Publix Virginia Soccer Training Center.
