U16 Boys Are Heading To US Youth Soccer Region 1 Presidents Cup Final
U16 BoysThe U16 boys United Presidents Cup competition started with our first game back on the 12th April, away at FC Bucks Dynamo. 5 minutes in and a lovely long diagonal ball from right defense is met by our wide midfielder who had made a blind side run to arrive central by the edge of the box. Instant control with the outside of his right foot out of the air and was followed by a cool finish into the corner. After that we totally commanded the game and were leading 3-0 b y half time with the game finishing with a 4-1 win for West-Mont United. The following weekend we hosted Lighthouse Lancers at home who we defeated 3-0 in a very one sided game. That qualified us for the quarter finals from the round-robin phase.
The quarter final was played at Wyoming Valley giving us a very long drive to the game. At half time it was 0-0 with our boys clearly on top but no goals to show for it. A few words of encouragement from the coaches and a request for some penetrating runs from midfield were quickly greeted by success. A break from central midfield and an exchange of a wall pass with our striker resulted in a 1v1 with their keeper that was calmly tucked away. After that there was only one winner and we ran away with game winning 3-0.
The bracket had us playing the semi-final the next day against Hulmeville Predators who had not had a game that weekend. The game was a very physical one and our defense shone, restricting Hulmeville to only one clear chance that they did not convert. The winning goal came in the first half with a break down the left resulting in a shot that was converted by our right midfielder coming in at the back post almost on the line. The 1-0 win was well deserved and showed how well we could defend when needed.
The State final was played against FC Philadelphia Black. The game was end to end in the first half with both sides struggling to turn midfield possession into goals. They had a very strong and tall central defense so we targeted getting our best ball dribblers out wide where they were weaker. This paid dividends, with a jinking run down the left wing followed by a great cross across the 6 yard box being met by a late run from our right midfielder who beat the defender to the ball to deflect the ball into the net. 1-0 to West-Mont! FC Philadelphia came back strong and only a goal line clearance from our player on the near post at a corner prevented a headed equalizer. At times we were not retaining the ball well enough when we cleared our lines and the ball was stuck in our half, but our defense were always up to the task and our goal never really seemed under threat. Going forward we always looked dangerous and a quick break away after turnover of possession in our half resulted in a great shot from 30 yards from our central midfield player that the keeper could only watch go past him. A few minutes later we added a 3rd with a great left foot finish under pressure that went right into the corner of the net. FC Philadelphia never gave up and added a consolation goal from a corner but the result was never in doubt. A great 3-1 victory for the U16 boys..
The boys now prepare for the US Youth Soccer Region 1 Presidents Cup Finals in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, May 23-25 where they will compete against the best in Region 1.

With the win in the semi-finals the boys automatically advanced to the Regional 1 tournament. In the EPYSA Presidents Cup Final the boys matched up against FC York Premier. The first half ended scoreless, with about 15 minutes left in the second half Nathan Alban scored again off of a great through ball from Colin Flanegin.

The game would go to Extra Time, in the first half of extra time FC York scored off a free kick. They would add another goal late to make it a 3-1 as the team pushed for an equalizer.
The boys played with discipline, high work rate and through some key player injuries, but never quit. The team looks forward to the opportunity of success in the USYS Regional 1 Presidents Cup Finals at Slippery Rock University on May 23-25 with the hopes to step forward into the Presidents Cup National Championship.
