Historic Win Propels Crossfire U-18 ECNL into National Semifinals

Unbeaten after three group games in the 2015 National Finals, the Crossfire Premier U-18 ECNL squad has qualified for the National Semifinal, to be played this Monday at 11:30 a.m. on field #14 at 60 Acres Park in Redmond.

To move into the semifinals, the Crossfire U-18s drew 1-1 with FC Stars of Massachusetts and dispatched Indiana Fire Juniors 1-0, but it was the game sandwiched between the two that made waves nationally. On Saturday Crossfire faced the Dallas Sting, no less than the defending National Champion and a team that hadn't lost an ECNL game since dropping a match at the ECNL Finals on July 11, 2013. Crossfire scored first; the Sting equalized just before half, and then Crossfire regained the lead with half an hour remaining. With just minutes to go, and Sting camped in their attacking half, Crossfire scored on the break to ice the game and pave their way into the final four.

 

Along with the U-18 team, Crossfire’s U-15, U-16 and U-17 ECNL teams are currently in positions to qualify for the final eight in their age-groups’ National Playoff brackets. Their fates will be determined over the next few days at 60 Acres.
