The PASC U15 Girls Force team and families did community service work at the Northern Lehigh food bank during their annual Thanksgiving drive. The Force collected and donated turkeys, hams, and dry goods as well as handed out food to needy families. Great job team!
Several of the PASC Travel teams having fun at a team building event at AMF Parkway lanes organized by Brad Stiles of the PASC U9B Trojans. What a great way to end the fall season by celebrating Strikes both on and off the field together. The PASC U9 Trojans, PASC U9 Black Knights, PASC U9 Red Dragons, PASC U11B Dynamite, and PASC U11G Super Strikers all participated.
PASC Mutiny won their division championship after two hard fought battles in the Philadelphia Area Girls Soccer league Atletico Division semifinal and finals this past weekend, November 12th and 13th. They finished 2nd in their division after the fall season with a 6-2 record, securing them a semifinal game on Saturday. They played against a psyched up Aston United team which ended in a 1-1 draw, sending them in to OT and ultimately penalty kicks. Mutiny stayed strong, with superb penalty kicks from the shooters and solid keeper skills, they won PK's 3-2, moving on to finals Sunday at Hilltop Fields. They faced a determined Pottsgrove Fury team. Mutiny stayed the course but Pottsgrove would not concede and the game ended 1-1. With no score in OT, they were again facing PK's. They batted down the hatches and came out the victors, taking out the Fury in PK's 3-2.
Congratulations to Mutiny, U13 girls PAGS Atletico Division Champions!
Congratulations to the PASC Raiders 05 for going undefeated and winning the U12 Boys Division at the River Soccer Club Columbus Day Tournament.

Over the Labor day weekend, the PASC Force U15 Girls team was crowned champions of the Keystone Cup. It was a 2 day tournament that spanned 4 games of competitive soccer. The Force won their first game against the Pennsylvania Soccer Academy in decisive fashion, 5-0. Their 2nd game of the day was against a very aggressive and skilled PA Classics Elite team. Both teams battled for 70 minutes with the PA classics coming out on top by a score of 2-1. Day 2 placed the Force in a semifinal game against the 1st place team of the opposing bracket, the Richmond Kickers. They were undefeated coming out of their bracket. The game concluded with the Force on top by a score of 4-0. The final game pitted the PA Classics Elite against the PASC Force (a rematch of the previous day). This PA Classics team was a team of high school freshmen who displayed amazing technical skill with the ball. For 70 minutes the battle ensued resulting in a 0-0 tie; on to penalty kicks. PA classics up first had their shot blocked by the Force goalie. The Force buried their first shot, PA classics missed their 2nd, and with two more buried in the back of the net by the Force, victory was achieved (with a sigh of relief by all). Congratulations Force girls! As always we are immensely proud!
In the face of an impending storm, the Mutiny battled a very talented Penn Fusion Eagles team but narrowly lost in the championship game 0-1 as the rains came down in the 2nd half.
We are very proud of the way they played and are excited for the upcoming year!
The PASC Raptors (2007-U10) are champions of the Kids Peace Invitational.
With numerous rules changes mandated by US Soccer this group showed amazing adaptability.
Solid defending, creative offense, and outstanding team chemistry saw the Raptors outscore their opponents 16-0 during the entire tournament.
For many of these boys, this was their first ever tournament championship.

On Saturday, May 28th, the PASC U11 Girls Vipers traveled to Harrisburg, PA to participate in the 34th Annual HMMS Memorial Day tournament.
The Vipers accepted a spot to play in the U12 bracket, because the U11 bracket was full. Going into the tournament, the girls knew that the combination of playing up and the season’s first “heat wave” would make this a challenging day.
The Vipers came out striking at their opponents! Against a strong Fusion FC Thunder, the girls worked hard to control the ball and a defensive battle ensued. Neither team could find the back of the net and the game ended in a 0-0 tie. The second opponent was Spring Grove Blast. The Vipers played an aggressive defense to win the ball and used possession attack to create numerous goal scoring opportunities. The Vipers won the game 7-2 to secure a spot in the finals.
In the finals, the Vipers met a well-rested Elizabethtown United Rage that entered the game expecting victory. But from the tap the Vipers dominated the game with high pressure defense and an organized attack built on ball control, heads up play, accurate passing and well-timed finishing. The Viper wore down Elizabethtown with a 3-0 victory to capture the U12 Championship!
We are so proud of this special group of young ladies and the opportunity to see their hard work and commitment translate into success on the soccer field. They have met every challenge the Coaches have put in front of them all year. We look forward to continuing this journey with the team next year at 2004 (U13) and expect even more success in the future.
GREAT JOB this past weekend and all year ladies!!!
Semi-final win 2-0 against Premier Red Devils and a 4-2 finals win against Jigs academy

The PASC U13 Force competed in the FC Europa Cup over March 12-13th. This is one of the most competitive early spring tournaments in PA. The Force competed in the Championship division, which was the most competitive division offered. Every team the Force faced was ranked higher in GotSoccer. Fun being the underdogs! The first team the Forced played was a powerful Washington United team from NJ. This game went back and forth with solid defensive play from both teams. The Force put one in and one is all it took. Final score PASC Force 1 – Washington United 0.
Second game was against a tough HFC Ready team. The Force put in two goals with great technical play from the midfield and forwards. Defense once against shut out the opposition. Final Score PASC Force 2- HFC Ready 0.
Third game was against an English trained Haverford Elite team. Gotta love those accents! This game was all about endurance. The game finished regular play in a tie, went into 2 five minute overtime periods ending in a tie, and then went into a PK shootout. Exciting doesn’t come close to describing the shootout. Goals went back and forth with the last shot placed at the foot of the Force. If the Force scored the next shot, they would win, but no pressure girls. No pressure was felt, because that last shot just sailed in the right corner of the net. Final score: PASC Force 1 – Haverford Elite 0.
The final game was against Washington United who had beaten the 25th ranked team in the nation to get to the finals. They were angry we had beaten them in our first game and determined for some payback. Well, the Force pumped in a quick goal in the first 5 minutes of play and held a 1-0 lead up until 10 minutes left in the game. Washington scored, tied it up, and was ready to finish the Force off. The Force stayed calm and cool and countered their equalizer with a goal of their own. Final score PASC Force 2 – Washington United 1.
The Force finished the tournament with the fewest goals against than any other team in the championship division. Defensive play by all players was amazing. This was some of the best balanced offensive and defensive play the girls have shown all year! Great job girls!!!
The PASC U11G VIPERS traveled to a chilly Mechanicsburg, PA to play in the 2016 Icebreaker Tournament.
This was the girl’s first games played outside and on grass this spring. The girl's first opponent was GYSC Sabotage. The transition to outdoor took time and required some adjustments during the game. But the team finished strong with a 3-2 win.
The girl’s second opponent was FC York 04 Elite. The girls continued to build with aggressive pressure on the ball and so did FC York. Neither team could not find the back of the net and the game ended in a 0-0 draw.
The last game set up a show down between the PASC Vipers and Mechanicsburg Tornados. The teams were in 1st and 2nd place and had met each other 3 times previously in the fall, with Vipers earning a victory and 2 draws. This weekend’s game was another physical and fast paced effort with both team playing extremely well and creating opportunities. The Vipers jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on a fast transition and then scored another goal on a sharp cross in front of the goal to make it 2-0. The Tornados never gave up and continued to attack, but Vipers stayed organized on defense, pressured the ball all over the field and worked equally hard to keep possession of the ball.
The Viper won the game 2-0 and were crowned champions of the U11 Girls Black division.
The Coaching Staff is extremely impressed with how the girls played as they returned outdoors. Game play continued to improve quarter by quarter and the girl’s finished the day with some of their best soccer to close out the tournament.
Congratulations to the VIPERS.
We had an awesome 2015 Fall season. With a record of 7 wins (4 shutouts) and just 1 loss. Most importantly, we had fun and played great "team-soccer" every week. Parents and coaches are very proud of you — see you in the Spring!
The Vipers first game was against a very good team from Upper 90. Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw as they both became familiar with the format. The second game, against Abington Precision, also ended in a 1-1 draw. Entering the 3rd game, the Vipers faced Fairmount Falcons needing a strong effort to advance out of bracket play. The Vipers came out fighting and defeated the Falcons 7-0 to earn a trip to the semi-finals.
In the semi-finals, the Vipers had to play their PAGs division rival Valley Voodoo. Vipers and Voodoo have met three times this past fall season; everyone expected fireworks! The Vipers came out striking with an aggressive style to earn 4-2 victory and a shot at the finals against Whitpain Wild.
The finals kicked off at the end of a long “soccer” day. Both teams battled hard, but the Vipers just could not find the back of the net. Despite a flurry of attacks in the final 5 minutes, the Vipers lost
Coaches and parents are extremely proud of the Girl’s effort. We look forward to continue to see them grow as a team/soccer players and a great group of young ladies. GREAT JOB!
