Thirty-nine teams earn boys division titles at Disney Soccer Showcase

The Disney Soccer Showcase boys event was played over the holidays in Orlando, Fla. where over 300 of the top U-15 to U-19 teams in the United States and around the world competed for division titles at one of the most challenging showcase events of the year.

Teams representing clubs from 19 U.S. states, Canada and Brazil captured division championships. Teams from California (1), Colorado (1), Connecticut (2), Florida (3), Georgia (2), Illinois (1), Kansas (1), Kentucky (1), Maryland (1), Massachusetts (1), Michigan (2), New Jersey (3), New York (2), North Carolina (1), Ohio (2), Pennsylvania (1), Texas (5), Virginia (2) and Wisconsin (1) went home with trophies.

Michigan Wolves, Connecticut’s FSA FC, Florida’s Chargers SC and Dallas Texans SC were the only clubs to claim multiple division titles, each capturing two, with the exception of Texans which won four.

Dallas Texans squads took home the U-16 Championship Black Division and U-18/19 Showcase Black Division trophies, while also finishing at the top of the table in the 01/02 and 99/00 Divisions at the Academy level. The U-16 Texans posted a perfect 4-0-0 record while outscoring opponents 8-2, capping off their run by edging out Alabama’s Birmingham United SA 00 Elite 2-1 in the final. Texans 98 White grinded out two wins and a draw in group play before blanking National League U-18 Blue Division leader Lehigh Valley United 2-0 in the championship match.

On the Academy side, the U-13/14 Texans earned three straight clean sheet wins over Tampa Bay United (1-0), Concorde Fire (4-0) and Kendall SC (4-0), while the U-15/16 squad blanked Kendall SC 1-0, tied Concorde Fire 2-2 and defeated Weston FC 2-1 to lead the field with seven points overall.

Once again, the Disney Soccer Showcase was played in conjunction with the US Youth Soccer National League, providing a two-in-one showcase event for attending college coaches. National League squads conducted league play in their own bracket within the top two divisions of each Disney age group, with the top finisher meeting the winner from the opposite bracket in the division final.

Non-National league teams prevailed over the National League squads in five out of the eight Showcase Red and Showcase Black Division championships. With both sides of the brackets loaded with State, Regional and even reigning National Champions, it was no surprise that six of the eight title matches were decided by just one goal or through penalty kicks.
