State Cup success for U19 locals
Originally, the games were to take place in Lexington and Versailles, but the bad weather wreaked havoc with venue plans, resulting in a late change to Owensboro.
Among the clubs to have teams drop out were Kings Soccer Alliance (leading the way with six teams), Bluegrass SC, NKSA, Radcliff, Lexington FC, CSC Chargers, CKSC Lightning and LSA.
However, many Louisville teams advanced to finals weekend, which takes place this Saturday and Sunday at Lovers Lane Soccer Complex inBowling Green.
In fact, some have already been crowned champions as the U19 State Cup winners were determined Monday.
Mockingbird ’92 girls overcame LouisvilleSC (10-1) and Javanon (4-0) to win its fifth State Cup.
On the boys’ side, Javanon ’92 won its fifth consecutive title — and seventh overall — with victories over Bluegrass (2-0) and United 1996 (4-2).
Both teams have booked their places at the Region II championships in Appleton, Wisc., from June 25-29. Expect more from the area to follow at the weekend.
