On September 26 the VYSA President’s Cup competition got underway with five SOCA Premier teams and one Skyline Elite SC team involved in the opening round. It was a day with some unusual results and high drama.
Three squads advanced, each needing overtime or penalty kicks to resolve the outcome. The U19 Boys Elite were held 1-1 at the end of regulation, but then stormed past the visiting Baystars in the overtime period, notching four goals for a 5-1 victory. Both the U15 and U16 Boys Premier teams went to penalty kicks to secure their passage to the next round of play.
On October 3 the U17 Girls Premier Blue will launch their campaign away at Arlington.
