Since we last spoke… in PASL-Premier action, we played our newest and most-competitive rival Oskar Blues FC home and away and won both matches in thrilling fashion by one goal (6-5 and 3-2, respectively). We beat our neighbors, the Denver Dynamite (7-3), in the #DenverDerby, and lost an away game just this past weekend to an upstart Rocky Mountain Bighorns Squad (4-9). We stand in 2nd place with a 4-3 record on the season and are excited about the growth in competitiveness in the RMD of PASL-Premier. It’s good for everyone and good for Colorado Soccer.
We have one game to leave our mark for the 2013-14 season coming up this Sunday in a reverse fixture vs the same Rocky Mountain Bighorns team. We have revenge on our minds and want to provide out supporters with a great final match. Game is this Sunday February 16th at the Westminster Indoor Center (6051 West 95th Avenue Westminster, CO 80031) at 4:30pm. Tickets are $6 at the door. It’s Youth Soccer Night so all kids 16 and under wearing their youth soccer jerseys get in for free! Kids 5 and under are always free.
We’re excited for SPRING!!! Not only to sunny days ahead but all of the competitive outdoor soccer that awaits us this year. We’ve got Tryouts coming up soon (Tentatively March 2/9th, although a formal announcement with details will be made soon).
The USSSA Nationals is coming up March 14-16, 2014 in Kansas City, KN. We qualified by winning the 2013 Colorado State Cup last July. The tourney was scheduled to be in Colorado last fall, but was moved until this spring instead. Winning this tournament is our biggest competitive goal of the year. We are going full steam ahead with plans to win the tournament and get the berth into the US Open Cup!
Spring; here we come!
