Rare National Soccer Title For Idaho
The FC Nova U-13 girls soccer team won the Presidents Cup national title this past weekend in Indiana and in doing so became just the second Idaho soccer team to win a National youth championship. The Nova U-16 girls won in 2011.
The Presidents Cup is one of two national youth soccer tournaments, the other is the US Youth National Championships but FC Nova opted for the Presidents Cup which is for states with 20,000 or fewer register players in youth soccer.
The Nova U-13 girls opened and finished the tournament in style. They beat a team from Dallas 5-0 in their first game and then topped the South Dakota Soccer Alliance 5-1 in the championship game.
It was an impressive run in which the FC Nova U-13 girls played their best soccer of the season putting the youth soccer world on notice that Idaho has a solid program with the talent to compete for championships.
