Championships Awarded at NorCal Cup
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Danville Mustang claimed four of the 23 state championships awarded at US Club Soccer’s NorCal Cup, held last week for boys and girls in the U9 and U10 age groups.
Over 160 teams competed in the U9 & U10 NorCal Cup. Danville won four championships, victorious in the Boys U10 Super Cup, Boys U10 Premier Cup, Girls U10 Super Cup and Girls U10 Gold Cup. Bay Oaks earned a pair of titles with victories in the Boys U9 Gold Cup and Girls U10 Silver Cup.
The NorCal Cup Finals for Boys & Girls U11-U14 teams will be contested Dec. 15-16.
All US Club Soccer clubs, academies and league team members located in northern California were invited to participate. The U9 & U10 NorCal Cup consisted of a preliminary round of three games held from Oct. 1 – Nov. 11 and then a three-game qualifying round on Saturday, Nov. 17 with all teams advancing to a quarterfinal on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 18. The championship games played on the afternoon of Sunday, Nov. 18 ended a tournament in which all 160 teams played at least seven games.
The US Club Soccer State Cup provides an alternative to the current “state cup” model by allowing clubs to develop a competitive format as they see best in their respective state. A US Club Soccer State Cup may have multiple competition levels, include home-and-home series, and have a flexible schedule and roster rules. Results from all US Club Soccer State Cups will be factored into the 2008 National Cup VII seeding for Boys and Girls U11-U17 teams.
More information on US Club Soccer’s State Cup competitions, including an application to organize a State Cup, is available on the US Club Soccer website.
