Blast FC Soccer Academy sends 4 teams into State Cup Semis!
This past weekend saw the return of The Ohio State Cup Tournament due to a year of disruption because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our U12 White-U18/19 boys groups competed in group play this past weekend, and the Club is massively proud of the performances from all the teams.
The U12 White, U13, U15 White, and U18/19 age groups concluded their tournaments for the season and are now looking forward to closing out league play and tryouts. It has been a challenging year for these age groups, and we applaud their efforts.
The U14, U15 Red, U16, and U17teams have advanced from group play into the semi-finals this weekend hosted at Darree Soccer Complex in Dublin, OH. The U14 team finished their group as leaders and now advance to play Liberty FC. The U15 Red team finished their group as leaders and now face Croatia Jrs. in their semi-final. The U16 team also completed group play as leaders and now face Team Challenger FC, and the U17 side will be facing Evolution FC as the #3 seed to see who advances to the finals of this year’s State Cup.
Our U15 and U17 are in the Super Group of their respective State Cup, and if they are Champions this weekend, it will give them an opportunity to compete in the National Cup Finals in Colorado July 16th-20th. Our U14 and U16 teams, should they win their respective championship this weekend, will have the chance to compete in the National Cup Midwest Regionals in Illinois June 18th-21st.
We are very proud of the performance by the entire Club this year, this is a result of the Blast FC philosophy: putting players first. Player development is at the heart of our philosophy, and we believe that our process will always yield positive results at the team level, and individually. We can proudly say that no other Club in Central Ohio has been able to match our performance this season, and we are very excited for the future of these age groups and our entire Club. Go Blast!
On the Younger Side
Blast FC Soccer Academy has now started the COPL End of Season Spring Tournament for our U8, U9, U10, and U12 teams. The tournament will give our youngest players an opportunity to earn a piece of silverware for the Spring season and serve as a launch pad for exciting tryouts. We are very excited and proud of our groups for their efforts so far this season.
