Club Finds Success at South County Fall Cup


Green 10G

The U10 girls started strong on Saturday, winning 5-1 and 7-0, to clinch a spot in the semifinals. Their offense was diverse, with goals coming from several different players throughout the two games.

Sunday's semifinal was an epic struggle between SCAA and the Arlington Silver team. Arlington took an early 1-0 lead, but SCAA never gave up, eventually equalizing late in the second half. After 10 minutes of scoreless overtime, the game moved to a penalty shootout to determine who would move on to the finals. It took 2 sets of 5 penalties before SCAA finally prevailed. Anna Kosowski was a stand out in goal, making several saves throughout the shootout.

The final was another close game for the 10G girls, as they battled Villarreal Virginia Academy 2010. SCAA scored first, about midway through the first half, and went into halftime leading 1-0. The second half saw back and forth play, with each team having several chances to score. In the end it was Villarreal who broke through, scoring 2 goals and taking the title with a 2-1 victory.

Overall a great weekend of soccer, and a great learning experience, for the girls.

The U11 boys finished 1-0-1 on Saturday, getting a 3-1 victory in the morning and a 1-1 tie in the afternoon. The team from Burke finished with same day one record, leaving them tied for first place going into day 2.

Both teams won their morning game, setting up a rematch (they tied 1-1 on Saturday) for the championship on Sunday afternoon under the lights. Unfortunately, SCAA could not find a way though the Burke defense, and they lost the rematch 0-3.

Green 08B

The U12 boys started the tournament with a pair of wins on Saturday, outscoring their opponents 11-2. The 6 points earned from the victories put them in first place going into day 2.

In their first Sunday game, the boys tied GFRSC 08B Juventus 2-2, leaving them in the position of needing a tie or victory in their final game to clinch the championship. The final game was a back and forth battle, with teams trading goals throughout both halves of the game. The boys of VISA Vasquez Academy 08 finally took the lead for good with 8 minutes remaining. SCAA continued to pressure their opponents, but could not find the equalizer. The final score was 3-4, and SCAA had to settle for the runner-up medals.

Green 07B

The U13 boys started their tournament with a pair of shutout wins (8-0 and 7-0) on Saturday. Their strong defense was supported by a team effort on offense, with goals being scored by 5 different players. The 2-0 start setup the team for a battle of undefeated teams on Sunday morning, as the Pipeline SC team from Maryland also went 2-0 on Saturday.

Because of the overall U13 standings, the morning game between Pipeline and SCAA turned out to be the final match, deciding which team would take home the Championship medals. SCAA controlled much of the first half, but a saved SCAA penalty, and 2 Pipeline goals book-ending the half, saw them down 0-2 at the break. The second half saw much more balanced play, with both teams getting opportunities to score. Unfortunately, only Pipeline found the back of the net, scoring 2 additional goals, and sending SCAA to a 0-4 defeat.
