One game left to earn a spot in the National Semi-Finals
The USYS National Championship Series is going strong in Overland Park, Kansas. Legends FC earned two spots in the National Championship series via National League.
Jenny Lawler’s Legends South GU19 team is part of a 4-team group from across the country, and they have played two games so far (as of the time of this article). The top two teams from each group will progress to the GU19 semi-finals.
Ted Small’s Legends Inland Empire GU16 team is also down to their last group-round game.
Win and you’re in
Semi-final spots are still completely up for grabs. Through two games, the GU19 Legends have earned one point with a tie against Sunrise Spring 2000 from Florida. The GU16 Legends IE girls have two points through two games.
Because of the 3-point “World Cup” scoring system (3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie), both Legends teams must win their final games on Thursday. Although some other teams can progress with a tie in their final group-round game, a tie won’t be good enough for Legends. Both teams must win.
From everyone at SoccerNation, best of luck to the Legends girls tomorrow!
