Congratulations to the FC Napoli Girls U16 Fuse!
The Napoli Girls U15 Blast had a tremendous showing at the 2014 Region 1 President Cup event hosted Pennsylvania West Soccer Association.
With 2 Open Cup wins over the weekend, FC Napoli’s Girls U15 team has advanced to the semi-finals on May 31st.
The FC Napoli Girls U15 team has advanced to play in the USYS Region 1 Presidents Cup tournament.
It was memorable Memorial Day weekend for FC Napoli to say the least! At Fort Devens, Napoli families and players gathered under what seemed like more tents than ever for loads of food, fun, sun and let’s not forget some great soccer during the 36th Annual John Smith Soccer Academy Tournament.
The U17 Sparks knew they had the opportunity to finish their MAPLE Spring Season undefeated last Wednesday when they played their postponed matched against SF Vikings. Showing the same character that this team has shown during their entire season, the” no quit attitude” came into play as the prospect of an undefeated season and securing a first place finish would vault them into Division 1 for the MAPLE 2013 Spring Season!
This was not their usual game in hand at halftime, but with work to be done and in the closing minutes they would make a statement as a team – and that’s just what they did. Coach Darman said, “time was running down, Emily Dawidczyk had a beautiful combination play with Meaghan Whalen who found the back of the net and scored. It was so great for this team – no losses in D2 and now they will move on to D1.”
And with that the equalizer goal was done with just a few minutes remaining, as Coach Darman said, that is the statement this team said this MAPLE Spring Season. The Sparks held on to tie and finish their MAPLE season without a loss and they will move up to Division 1 next Spring Congratulations Sparks!
It will forever be known as “The Perfect Season” by Girls U14 Fuse family. With 1st place in the MAPLE 2012 Spring Season clinched and their return to Division 2 secured for the 2013 Spring Season, there was nothing left to play for – except the pride of perfection.
It would not be an easy task – traveling to Nashua, NH to face a formidable opponent in World Cup and hot temperatures.
Once again however, just like the 6 preceding matches, steady keeper play and stout defending in the back allowed for relentless pressure through the midfield to create just enough counterattacks before time ran out.
With about 3 minutes to go Delainey served a long ball in behind the backs. An oncoming keeper was unable to secured the ball, as Alanna had already raced to make a play with great anticipation; with enough time and space Alanna put the winning touch on the ball for the 2nd time in as many games, as it easily rolled over the goal line.
Napoli Fuse heard the final whistle on this game conclude with a 1-0 shutout for GK Bel – a perfect run of 7 clean sheets in 7 games!
Coach Darman said after the game that the 7-0-0 record with 0 Goals Allowed was a first in FC Napoli history.
Congratulations to Coach Darman and his players on their incredible achievement!
