US Youth Soccer National Finalists
Sporting Nebraska FC U19 02/03 Premier girls spent the last week at the USYS National Championships after punching their ticket to Nationals by winning the Region II championships. The girls battled strong opponents in the prelims, going 2-1 to make it to the semi-finals. At the semis they came up against an incredibly talented Utah Soccer Alliance club. Sporting fought their way back from a 0-2 deficit in the semi-finals to win 3-2 in the last 15 mins. For finals, the game was a rematch against Boca out of Florida. It was a tough game against an amazing group of players. Sporting battled to the very end but came up short, 4-2. These ladies left everything out on the field and Sporting Nebraska FC couldn't be prouder of the girls and the coaches. Their never quit attitude and determination is something to be inspired by all. These girls leave a legacy of true grit and talent that will be remembered for a lifetime. To the players, we thank you. You are role models, future leaders, and strong young women. Your journey is something that will talked about for years.
