We all are so proud of our 04 Girls team who represented our club, our state, and Region III at the US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup Nationals in Florida this past week (July 13-16).

The team played the winner of the other three regionals from across the states: Beach FC LB 04 Nunes (California South), Impact GFC (Ohio), and VAR 2004 (Virginia). They wound up with 1 draw and 3 losses, but fought hard in every match and gained valuable experience!

Look for a recap story soon that will share some of the team's experiences during this tremendous season!

Congratulations players, coaches and parents for being the first Comets team to make a nationals tournament! #goarcomets

The club would like to congratulate our 99B for having a sensational run at Greensboro, NC during the Southern Regional Championships June 22-30. The boys won their group with 3 wins against teams from Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Tennessee. After a day off on Monday, the team played their quarterfinal match on Tuesday against Louisiana Fire Juniors 99 Red, winning 3-1. Their semifinal on Wednesday had the team playing North Texas Solar Chelsea 99 Sawyer. The boys stepped up and grinder out a stellar 2-1 win to ride their momentum into the final where they would face national powerhouse UFA 99 Premier out of Georgia. The final would prove to be a great battle between two solid teams. The Comets went up 1-0 early in the game, with a goal by Pedro (Junior) Garcia, to show the team from Georgia that they were in for a game as the half ended 1-0. Georgia began the second half strong and was able to pull even within the first few minutes of the second half. Both teams were able to establish moments of quality as the game went back and forth with both teams fighting hard for the win. Late in the second half the Comets picked up a second yellow which forced the boys to play the rest of the match a man down. Georgia found momentum and was able to put in the winning goal in the closing minutes.

The 99B finished a strong tournament performance and was able to place two players within the top goal scorers for the tournament. Jose (Lalo) Castro (AR High School Gatorade Player of the Year) had 6 goals for the tournament while Erol Banuelos netted 3 goals.

The club and state are so proud of the team as they represented our state and region well! Great run boys!!!
