Strong Showing at The Battle of the Dome

December 3, 2016 — So close! Despite going unbeaten and only giving up 3 goals in 4 games, the Wildcats came out on the wrong end of a three-way tiebreaker with two other unbeaten teams to finish in third place in todays Battle of the Dome at 422 Sportsplex.

Even thought their exceptional performance was just short of the crown, it stung just a little less knowing that their friends and training mates, the Methacton United Avengers were the champions.

U10 Wildcats: Challenge Cup Group Winners!

April 18, 2016 — Congratulations to our U10 Wildcats girls for winning both of their EPYSA Challenge Cup group stage matches this weekend and advancing undefeated into the quarterfinals!

On Friday night, the Wildcats played an exciting game against the Valley SC Velocity on our home field at Heebner Park. In an evenly matched, hard fought game, the Wildcats came from behind, down 1-0 at the half, to score the equalizer early in the second half. Our girls went on to take the lead midway through the second half with a great goal. However, Valley Velocity did not give up, and evened the score at 2-2 shortly thereafter. The Wildcats kept up the pressure, and won the game with the third and final goal.

The Wildcats played an aggressive game, challenging the ball in the middle and forward thirds with great effect. The defense worked well as a unit, shutting down most of the drives by the opponents. The midfielders and forwards did an outstanding job, with some great crosses and awesome passing combinations, especially in the second half of the game. Final Score

On Saturday afternoon, the Wildcats played another cup game, this time away at the CRUSA Blizzards in Southampton. Once again, this game was hard fought, and the Wildcats had to come from one goal behind, but managed to score the equalizer by halftime. The Wildcats owned possession in the second half and scored the winning goal midway through, nearly missing on several other scoring opportunities. Final score: 2-1 Wildcats.

With these two wins, the Wildcats will advance to the Quarterfinals and will play the winner of Group G.

U10G Wildcats Finalists in YSC Winter League

January 7, 2016 — The Wildcats competed in the first winter session of the YSC U9/U10 Girls league. At the end of the eight games of the regular season, the Wildcats were in third place going into the playoffs, having only lost two games to the first and second place teams. The YSC league playoffs were all scheduled on one Thursday night at the end of the season.

In the first of three games that night, the Wildcats faced off against a team that we had beaten during the season. The Wildcats scored first, about midway through the game, and it looked like we were easily moving on to the next level, but the opponents slipped a goal in with less than one minute to go! According to the YSC rules, a 4-minute sudden-death overtime period was to be played with 4v4, and no keepers. Both teams fought furiously through this period, trying deperately to score the winning goal. The Wildcats had several opportunities, but the period ended without resolution.

This had apparently never happened before, so the YSC officials removed one more player from each team for a 3 minute sudden-death overtime period. Again, both teams fought valiantly, but again, no one scored in the period, although tthe Wildcats had two very close misses. Finally, the YSC officials took another player from each team, limiting the field to 2v2. After a couple minutes, the Wildcats scored and emerged victorious!

If that doesnt already sound like too much excitement, it only started there...

In the semi-final game, the Wildcats were matched against the team that had finished the season in 2nd place, and have narrowly beaten us in the regular season. But the Wildcats came to play! In an extremely exciting match, the opponents scored first, early in the game, but the Wildcats did not relent, eventually scoring the equalizer about three quarters of the way through the game. You guessed it: at the end of regulation, we had another draw!

Following the same process as before, the two teams played very hard through the first overtime period, but they were fairly evenly matched, and so we moved to the second overtime period: 3v3. A couple minutes into this period, the Wildcats executed a beautiful give-and-go to score the winning goal!

Remarkably, the excitement did not end there! For the championship game, the Wildcats faced the team who had finished in first place druing the regular season. They had not given up a single goal all season, much less lost a game. Last time we played them, they beat us 8-0.

In a testament to the heart and the tenacity of of the Wildcats, they worked hard, easily matching the performance of the opposing team, shot for shot. It was one of the most exciting matches that our girls have played to date. In the end, the Wildcats lost the game, 1-0, but had played incrediby well. As a coach, it was eminently satisfying, and I was very proud of our team.

All Soccer, All Weekend for the Wildcats

September 5, 2015 — Our U10 Wildcat girls enjoyed a busy weekend of soccer, starting early Saturday morning, when the girls were honored to serve as ball girls for the Methacton High School Varsity Girls Soccer team!

The fun continued on Sunday with four—yes, FOUR—games in one day at the Al Perlini Memorial Tournament in Warminster. The girls endured a rough day in the top bracket, but never gave up and persevered throughout. We are proud the girls, who left the field with smiles and a resolve to make their very first game of the season next Sunday a win!

Great fight, girls!

U10 Girls Wildcats are Finalists at 2015 Battle at Hilltop

August 17, 2015 — Congratulations to the U10 Wilcats girls on winning their bracket and being Premier Division finalists at the 12th Annual Battle at Hilltop! Their runner-up finish was quite an accomplishment after four very close games.

On Saturday, the Wildcats won their bracket in two very tight matches, besting West Chester United Pride 05 by a score of 2-1 and West-Mont United Union 05-06 with a 3-2 win.

Their semi-final match against Lionville SC Blues was a real nail-biter! After ending the regulation period in a 1-1 draw, the game was decided on penalty kicks, a first for the Wildcats! After the first five rounds of PKs, the teams were still tied with two PKs each, sending the match to sudden-death round of PKs, where the Wildcats came out as the winner!

When PK's decide your fate....Congrats to our U10 Wildcats on advancing to finals in Battle at Hilltop!!

Posted by Methacton United Soccer Club on Sunday, August 16, 2015

The championship match was a hard-fought contest, with the West Chester team getting their revenge against the Wildcats, beating them 3-0. The Wildcats earned themselves second place in their first tournament of the preseason—their very first 4-game weekend and a hot one at that!

Way to go Wildcats and Coach Charlie!!! We look forward to many more wins and good times!
