The ’05 Steamers saved their best performances of the state league season for the 2021 Alabama Soccer Association State Cup this past weekend in Foley.
In the semi-finals the Steamers squared off against ’05 Alabama Rush. The team took a 1-0 lead into halftime and never looked back with a 3-0 final score.
The team played in their first Finals appearance against ’05 Alabama FC Central the following day. Once again, the team did not disappoint with excellent team play, scoring 2 first half goals in hard working fashion and both goals with great finishes. The second half saw a late free kick goal by Alabama FC that found it’s way in the goal off a deflection…making the score 2-1. Less than 3 minutes later the Steamers earned a foul in the box and converted the penalty kick to make the score 3-1.
Final score 3-1!

The goals were scored by Coleman Preskitt and Kenny Jaimes. Throughout the season the boys scored 47 goals and conceded just 5.

Attack 08 Black finish as Finalists at the RAD Beach tournament! Way to go Attack!
Congratulations Steamers 2010 Black for reaching the finals!!!
After a hard fought weekend which saw the boys battle two competitive teams during pool play. The first game came out as a 3-3 draw against MSC Strikers 2010. The following game, Steamers came out strong with a 4-1 win against 2010 SYSA Storm to finish out pool play.
The championship game followed a good competitive game against Trussville Fire 2010. Both sides played well in a hard fought match! The first half saw Trussville go up 1-0 just before the end of the half. Through the second half Steamers had many chances to make a very exciting game. With 40 seconds left in the game, the Steamers were awarded a free kick. The boys were able to convert on that free kick to tie up the game. This then brought the game to penalty kicks. The game ended in a dramatic shootout which saw Trussville win the championship.
Great job to the boys for a great weekend and a great start to the season!!!
