The 96/97 I boys have become the 4th SSC team to gain promotion into the Midwest Regional League (MRL) Premier Division. SSC has garnered Elite status within the 13 state Region with 3 teams in the Premier division next year with the 95/96 girls and 94/95 I boys. Congratulations to the the entire club for the reward and recognition!!
The 96/97 Boys (U15) earned a seed in this years State Cup tournament and are part of Bracket C in the U15 division. They’ll open play on Saturday June 9th at 8:00 am when they take on St Louis Scott Gallagher Black on LCS #04.
The 94/95 Boys (U17) are the Defending State Champions, the third such title earned by Springfield SC. They open play on Saturday with a 4:30 pm game against Lou Fusz Weber on LCS #10.
The 95/96 Girls (U16) are part of one of the most interesting Age Groups and Springfield got good news and bad news in this years draw. The bad news is they are in the same group with the defending champion KCFC Futura squad, a nationally ranked squad that is very talented. The good news is that SSC will not have to play their first game of the tournament against them as they did last year. That was an 0-3 loss followed by a pair of wins that wasn’t enough to get out of the group and into the knockout rounds. They’ll open instead at 8am Saturday against Avalon FC Premier.
If you get out to one girls game this weekend, come out Sunday morning at 8:00 am and cheer the local squad on as they face the defending champs. LCS #15 against KCFC/Futura Academy.
