FRISCO, Texas (Sept. 21, 2020) — The US Youth Soccer North Atlantic Conference, managed by EDP Soccer, saw teams in the 13U and 14U age groups take the fields Sept. 19-20 to play their second weekend of the Fall 2020 season. These early season matchups are beginning to set the stage for which teams will be battling it out for their spot at top of the table come season’s end.
The North Atlantic Conference is one of 13 National League Conferences, which each provide top teams with an opportunity to advance to their respective USYS Regional Championships. For teams in the North Atlantic Conference, these games are part of the road to the 2021 USYS Eastern Regional Championships, which will take place June 25-July 1, 2021 at Tuckahoe Turf Farms in Hammonton, N.J.
In the North Atlantic Conference Club vs. Club Divisions, one of the top matchups featured Inter CT playing host to White Plains YS. In the 13U Boys age group, Inter CT came away with the 3-0 win, while White Plains YS won the 14U Boys game by the score of 2-1.
“The 07 Boys persevered to earn the win behind the efforts and goals of Nico F. and Charles R. for a second half come-from-behind victory,” said Alejandro Galeano, Director of Coaching White Plains YS. “Our 08 Boys had a tough game, where we didn’t capitalize on our opportunities."
In the 14U Boys Premier I Division, SUSA 07 EDP hosted Long Island Premier in an exciting back-and-forth contest that saw the sides finish the game in a 2-2 tie.
On the girls’ side, the 14U Premier I Division featured Eastern New York State Cup Champion Clarkstown 2007 traveling to take on Conference newcomers Real Ole FC G2007. Clarkstown continued its winning ways with the 1-0 victory, as it looks to claim its spot at the top of the table. Kayleigh Mula scored the game's lone goal, and Krista Deutsch and Rachel Alleyne were outstanding in the backline in front of keeper Erin Joyce — helping the side to the clean sheet victory.
“The game was great,” Mula said after netting the game-winner. “My goal was a team effort. It was a nice assist from Sophia G. and an awesome play by the team.”
