The Victoria Youth Soccer Organization (VYSO) is proud to announce that our U11 girls select team, Victoria Fire 11G, will be playing in the South Texas Youth Soccer Association (STYSA) Presidents Cup State Finals!
This is the first year this group of girls has been together as a select (competitive) team and for them to qualify for the state finals in Presidents Cup is a huge accomplishment!
Victoria Fire 11G has had a great first year! They played in the WDDOA Alpha division. In their fall season, they had 7 wins and 1 loss. For their spring season, they continued to dominate and took 1st in their bracket with 5 wins and 1 tie. They will move up to the WDDOA Challenger division this fall.
The team decided to challenge themselves and entered the STYSA Presidents Cup, which is the second highest cup event offered by STYSA. They were prepared to face some tough opponents but were ready to hone their skills on the field. They tied their first game, won their second game, and lost their third game. They had to win their fourth, and final, game to earn a spot into the state finals. These girls did not disappoint and won that game 4-1!
This is the second time one of our teams has qualified into the Presidents Cup State Finals. The last time was when our U19B team, Victoria Fire 99, made it to state four years ago.
STYSA Presidents Cup State Finals will take place Saturday, May 21, and Sunday, May 22, at the Veterans Memorial Park & Athletic Complex in College Station. Our team will play two games on Saturday and one game on Sunday. If you are in the College Station area, please go cheer these girls on!
