Three Real Maryland FC SYL Teams
March Back into the USL Championships
RMFC’s U14 Girls, U15 Boys & U16 Boys Qualify
for National Championship Tournament
Silver Spring, MD -- The end of the USL Super-Y League regular season means the end of the road for many teams. However, Real Maryland FC will proudly be sending three teams again this year to the United Soccer Leagues Super Y League’s North American Finals in Tampa, Florida this December.
One of the teams, the Under-16 Boys, finished first in their respective group while finishing one point out of first place in the Mid Atlantic division. Coach David Edlow led the RMFC U16 Boys to a 10-2 record while scoring 26 goals for and conceding only 10 goals against.
The 2011 Super Y-League North American Finals presented by Umbro - one of the top college recruiting events in the country – is set for December 2-6 in Tampa, Florida. This year’s event will see the first day of matches begin on Friday, December 2nd, and the Championship matches scheduled for Tuesday, December 6th.
The revitalized showcase event features more than 130 boys and girls teams and nearly 2,500 players from throughout the U.S. and Canada competing for the right to be called North American champions. It has been moved later on the calendar to allow for increased attendance among college, national team and international club scouts due to fewer conflicts with other tournaments.
The Under-15 Boys team, led by Head Coach Billy Brush, will make their first appearance in the National Tournament Finals. This is Coach Brush’s second year in a row leading a Monarch’s SYL Team into the National Finals Tournament. In 2010, he led the RMFC U13 team to the Tournament in their first season together as a new team and as a new Monarchs Head Coach.
The Under-14 Girls Team, in their second season with Real Maryland FC, has quietly qualified for the second year in a row for the National Finals Tournament. In 2010, Led by Head Coach Brett Menge, the team qualified in their first year as a RMFC Super Y League Team. Coach Menge and the U14 Girls team are the model for all Real Maryland FC Girls Teams.
“I am very proud of the coaches, players and parents for this tremendous accomplishment,” says General Manager David Noyes. “I have coached in the Super Y League. It is fierce competition and it takes tremendous sacrifice and dedication from everyone involved with a team to reach the Super Y League National Finals. The Super Y League regional play is a pre-curser and an excellent introduction to what it is like to play in the PDL, USL Pro League or the W-League.”
Real Maryland FC would like to offer their congratulations to these three teams on their accomplishments so far, and wish them the best of luck in their quest for a North American Championship.
Real Maryland FC will be adding new teams and coaches in 2012. Tryouts for Real Maryland FC Super Y League will begin at the end of December.
