October has been a huge month for our THREE ESK teams playing in the State League. On Friday, October 18, our U13 Girls started the festivities with a resounding 2-0 win over AC Premier under the lights at Denison. From the opening player introductions, to the singing of the National Anthem by Jordin Sparks (on tape) and to the fantastic pizza shared by both teams after the game the Night was one the girls will long remember. With the victory the girls ran their record to 6-1-1 and WON the State League Title D2. An email from the coach to parents captured the moment "while we still have work to do on technique and tactics few teams around will match the intensity, drive, and will to win of our ESK girls.” Not to be outdone, the U11 boys travelled to Avon on Saturday, October 19, to face two Challenger Crew teams. Needing a win in the opener the boys found themselves on the wrong end of a 4-2 score with less than 10 minutes left to play. No problem! The Black and Gold simply turned it up a notch and buried 4 goals to win 6-5. Winning the night cap easily, 8-3, the boys returned to familiar territory - State League Champions D1. It is the third title for the team which has gone 29-3 in four State League seasons. This past weekend our U10 boys ran their D2 State League record to a stellar 7-1 with a 3-0 shutout of Tri-County United. The youngsters were keen on keeping the championship run on track and the boys clinched the State League D2 Championship. Overall, the team scored 43 goals and conceded 13, displaying superb ball control and defensive toughness Pictured below are the Three-State League Championship teams. A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR STATE LEAGUE CHAMPIONS!
