This weekend was the preliminary round of the state cup for the U-16 boys that I have been coaching this year. Prelims are in bracket play format and the only thing you focus on is advancing to the next round, which in our case meant punching a ticket to the state semifinals. This weekend we did that and did so in style, winning our first game 2-1 and then defeating the defending state champions 3-1. I'm super proud of my team. Last year they lost both games in the preliminary round. Making the semifinals with a statement like this is a big accomplishment. Now we'll take this momentum into the week ahead and get ready for the big game on Saturday.
