In their opening match on Friday, SOCA defeated Maryland United FC by a 3-2 margin. On Saturday, SOCA repeated the same score line against eventual third place finishers, San Francisco Elite Academy, from California.
Their closing match on Sunday capped a strong weekend showing with a 5-0 romp over Wilmington Hammerheads from South Carolina.
