PASC U14 Mutiny girls clinched the championship title at the River Soccer Club Columbus Day Tournament the weekend of October 7, 2017. Throughout the entire tournament, their determination and superb teamwork were evident, and for the majority of each game they controlled the field. Mutiny came out strong, attacking aggressively, defeating their first three opponents decisively and finishing with a tie. They did not allow a single goal against them the entire tournament with stellar defensive and goaltending play.
Panthers finished the day with a win against Lilitz (2-0) and two ties v. Swoyersville (0-0)& Lehighton (3-3) to earn a 2nd place trophy & medals. Since this was the first travel tournament action ever for half of this newly formed team, it was a very nice accomplishment for the girls.
The PASC Raptors are the River Soccer Club CDC 2017 U11 Boys Champions.
The boys played excellent soccer over the weekend earning an undefeated record of 4-0 in their division.
The defense and goal keeper were outstanding as usual. “Clean and mean” physicality allowed only 6 goals over the 4 matches.
The offense was clinical. Through relentless attacking the team finished with 25 goals over the 4 games.
A hard fought and well deserved total team effort. Congratulations Raptors!!

PASC’s 2004 Girls Vipers were Finalist at the 2017 Battle at Hilltop Tournament this past weekend!
The team played in a strong U14 bracket and faced very competitive opponents. Vipers finished with 3 wins, including an exciting semi-final clash against a strong PA Rush team. The match included solid defense and good attacking chances for both teams. Vipers persevered, scoring the winner just before time ended to advance to the Championship match.
The first tournament of the season is always an interesting challenge for players and teams as they prepare for fall leagues. Vipers play all weekend showed significant improvement in terms of team defense, attacking awareness and more generally in terms of patience and confidence; in all cases exceeding coach’s expectations.
Great job ladies! Keep up the hard work and GOOD LUCK this fall!

The 2007 U11 Girls team won their division at the Battle at the Hilltop Tournament.

The PASC Force U15 Girls team competed in the President Cup finals against FC York Elite 02 at Lehigh County fields. After 80 minutes of regulation play, the game was tied and forced into two 15 minute overtime periods. Neither team wanted to take it to PK's and neither team got what they wanted; it went to PK's. With both teams making and missing shots, the Force came up short yielding to FC York 3-2 in penalty kicks. This was truly a heartbreaking way to end such a courageous President's Cup journey. It is hard as a kid to see through your tears of disappointment at the tremendous accomplishment of being a finalist in the President's Cup. You worked so hard and got so close to something you wanted so bad. Girls, you made it to the finals and had the support of the PASC community that came out to cheer you on. When you are part of such a supportive family like that, it makes the unbearable, bearable. Thank you to everyone who came out on a rainy, cold Sunday morning to support us! GO FORCE!!!
