SDOR 05 ELITE QUALIFY FOR THE NATIONAL LEAGUE!!
Determination, Persevariance, Staying The Course: The Sdor 05 Elite boys U13s had to forfeit their opening State Cup match in April due to a human error technicality ( player passes not laminated) at the time of game kick-off on the field. VYSA state cup officials rule - game forfiet to the opponent. These young players distraught and hopes shattered. The team, coach and players only hope is to turn to their Regional League and make a run for the Regionals. "Truth Crushed To Earth, Shall Rise Again" A famous quote made by another group of athletes many years ago facing adversity to overcome. The Sdor 05 boys battled on toward the Regional League standings and earned the wildcard slot in the playoffs. Having won the semi-final match against a tough opponent AFFC Storm PA, they then took on the #2 Ranked team in the Nation - Baltimore Celtics. A competitive match that left everything on the field with Celtics gaining a 2-1 victory. Winning the State Cup is a good accomplishment, but having overcome these challenges and making it to be Region I Championships as Finalist is an even bigger accomplishment. They qualify for the National League and still have a slim change to make it to the USYS Regionals in June/July. Kudos to the boys!
