Wolves 01 Finalists at Disney

Wolves01 disney

The U14 Wolves 01 coached by Dave Hicklin were finalists in the gold division of the Disney's President's Day Soccer Tournament in Orlando, FL.  The Wolves did not concede a goal in round robin play and advanced to the semi-finals with a win and two draws.  A win was needed in the final round robin game against Carolina Elite SA 00 Premier (SC) and Zane Arnold headed home a corner kick from Peregrine Neubert to push the Wolves into the semis.  The Wolves faced Brevard SA 0001 Select Blue (FL) in the semi-final match.  The game was close and just as the round robin play featured two scoreless draws, at the end of 70 minutes the game was 0-0.  As the last minute was ticking away, coach Hicklin was finalizing the order of shooters for the PK shootout when Peregrine Neubert found Nick Restrepo just inside the 18 yard box with a cross.  Nick calmly received the pass and beat the Brevard goalkeeper with 30 seconds left in the match to send the Wolves to the finals.  The final was a rematch with OCYS 0001 Purple (FL).  The game was scoreless until the 35th minute when OCYS scored with 40 seconds left in the first half during a scrum after an OCYS corner kick.  OCYS scored an insurance goal midway through the second half to complete their win, 2-0.  It was an excellent performance by the Wolves 01 in the tournament.  We look forward to our next challenge in Annandale, VA

Courtney Petersen and Megan Buckingham head to Spain with U20 WNT

on .

The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team will bring 22 players to a U-19 invitational tournament in La Manga, Spain, running from Feb. 28-March 10. At the 10-team competition that features three matches for each country, the USA will face Norway (March 5), the Netherlands (March 7) and Sweden (March 9).

The tournament also features Switzerland, Germany, England, Italy, Denmark and Scotland. As the U.S. players are in the first year of a two-year cycle, and all were born in 1996, 1997 or 1998, they are technically still U-19s.

U.S. head coach Michelle French has called up 11 players currently in college and 11 still playing club for the matches against three countries who have all sent their senior sides to this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.

This age group is focusing on qualifying for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, which has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1996.

The roster features three players who were a part of the USA’s 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Team in midfielder Mallory Pugh, defender Kaleigh Riehl and midfielder Taylor Racioppi.

The U.S. U-20s will be preceded in La Manga by the U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team that will play three matches in a six-team tournament between Feb. 26 and March 2.

U.S. U-20 WNT Roster by Position:
GOALKEEPERS (2):Samantha Leshnak (Ohio Elite; Liberty Township, Ohio), Casey Murphy (Rutgers; Bridgewater, N.J.)
DEFENDERS (7):Maddie Elliston (Penn State; Omaha, Neb.), Sabrina Flores (Notre Dame; Livingston, N.J.), Natalie Jacobs (Slammers FC; Coto de Caza, Calif.), Annia Mejia (California; Bloomington, Calif.), Courtney Petersen (Michigan Hawks; Canton, Mich.), Kaleigh Riehl (BRYC; Fairfax Station, Va.), Parker Roberts (KC Metro Dynamos; Leawood, Kan.)
