Steamers 03 Black are State Cup Finalists!

Congratulations to the Steamers 03 Black team for reaching the State Cup Final!  The boys performed excellently over the weekend but fell short in the hard fought match against USC.  It was a tough match to start as we the Steamers went went back and forth as both teams applied high pressure early in the game.

In the 2nd half, the Steamers battled hard but gave up a late goal to USC.  The boys poured their hearts on the field and did their best.  A worthy performance for a great team with a great season.

Congratulations to the Steamers as 2020 U19 Boys D1 State Finalists!

We wish the best for all the players as they move forward to College!
