The Lonestar U15 Boys ECNL South team travels to Saint Louis, MO this week (July 22 - 25) to compete in the inaugural Boys ECNL Finals. Having qualified from the ECNL Playoffs in Greensboro, NC two weeks ago with a 3-0-1 record that included a round of 16 penalty shoot out win, the boys and Head Coach Darren Warham head to Missouri to face NCFC Youth Academy in their quarter final match up on Thursday, July 22nd.
Lonestar SC South competed in the South Division of the Texas Conference, finishing with a 9-7-3 record and a third place finish. The team had a tough start, opening their campaign with a 1-2-1 record through four games, but then proceeded to win three of their next four.
After a stretch of six games of trading wins and losses, Lonestar SC South closed out conference play with a 4-2-2 record, including earning points in four of its last five games.
At the National Playoffs, Lonestar SC South went 3-0-1 combined in Group H, which also included FC Golden State East, Crossfire Premier and Louisville City, and in the Round of 16.
“It is a great honor and tremendous achievement for this group of players to be one of the eight teams to make it to the ECNL National Finals in St. Louis,” said Darren Warham, Lonestar SC South ECNL Boys Director. “The team hopes to be the first Lonestar boys team to win an ECNL National Championship and will do their best to represent the Texas Conference the best they can. It has been a long, two-year journey for these players and we would like to thank the ECNL for continuing to provide opportunities and allowing youth soccer players to continue to grow through the experiences that they provide.”
