The 04G and 00G have advanced to the USYS South Texas State Championships held in San Marcos, Texas over Memorial Weekend (May25-27th)! The 04G advanced out of the District Round Robin Brackets to a single game playoff with the team winning, advancing to the State Championships. After an exciting 0-0 draw in regulation, the teams went to overtime. Still tied 0-0, the teams went to penalties! The Austin Texans went first and never looked back defeating Lonestar Red 4-2. "I am very happy for the players, parents and club. This age group (04/05) was divided a couple of years back with he age group change and we have made great strides since then. We are very excited about this opportunity at the USYS State Championships!
The 00G which went to Regionals last year and is the defending State Champion from South Texas also advanced back to the State Finals! They, like the 04s, advanced through bracket play to the knockout round. The 00s slowly wore down the Lions Red from San Antonio to end up winning 4-0. Lions FC did a great job of making the game hard for us in the first half but as the game wore on we just kicked it up a notch to start putting the game away. Really proud of this group of players as we had some athletes graduate last year and we have now gotten back to the State Championships.
