CUFC 93' Gold Concludes Youth Soccer Career as One of the Greatest Teams in CUFC History
Date Posted: 7/10/2012
The Boys 93' Gold team recently traveled to Greenville, SC to compete in the 2012 Regional Championships. The CUFC boys team made it out of group play that featured Florida state champion, South Carolina Finalist, and Oklahoma state champion and Regional Finalist. The regional quarter-finals featured a matchup versus the Dallas Texans and ended with a dramatic win for the 93' Gold team.
The regional semi-final had our CUFC boys playing against the reigning Regional Champion, Florida Nike Rush, ranked #3 in the Nation. The game did not start well as 93' Gold was issued a red card in the third minute of the game. Although Florida Nike Rush scored in the second half, 93' Gold found the equalizer in the 87th minute. The 93' Gold team played with ten men for almost the entire match, including overtime. Although the team lost in a penalty kick shootout, they demonstrated the character that has garnered them so much success over the years.
93' Gold Coach and CUFC DOC for senior boys, Michael Magno, commented after the game, "Probably one of the more heroic efforts I have ever seen in youth soccer. They had so many factors against them, and they saw the game through to the bitter end. I could not have been more proud of these boys today. I know the boys are sad of coming so close, but the only thing that I am sad about, is that our time together has come to an end."
The CUFC 93' Gold Boys team concludes their careers ranked #1 in North Carolina, #4 in Region III, and #11 in the Nation.
The 93' Gold team moves on as almost all of the boys are seniors, and ten out of the 16 players will be playing in college next year. Congratulations to the boys for a successful career at Charlotte United Futbol Club.
