(Via Club Champions League) – The CCL has crowned champions for the 2016-2017 season. Arlington Soccer Association earned top honors, taking home the Dave Amsler Club Champion Trophy with a seasonal record of 165 wins, 44 losses, and 25 ties. Arlington edged out SOCA by just three points to win the Boys Division Overall Championship, and Loudoun Soccer netted the Girls Division Championship by a razor-thin one point margin over Beach FC.

“Such slim margins of victory for our Overall Club Champions demonstrate the caliber of competition that exists within the league,” said CCL Executive Director Brian Kuk.  “The quality of clubs within the CCL create an exciting matchday environment in which each week is significant to a club’s success.”

The CCL age group winners represented a wide swath of the league, including top spots earned by Virginia Legacy, SYA, SOCA, Loudoun, LMVSC, BRYC, Beach FC, and Arlington.  In both the boys and girls tables, age group championships were ultimately determined by a slender margin of seven points or fewer in each age group.   Four age group champions were determined by just one point.

“It’s an amazing feeling to be crowned the Overall Club Champion of CCL and CCL II,” said German Peri, Arlington Soccer Association Director Coaching.  “Our club’s success in the most competitive youth environment in the area is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all of our players, coaches, parents, and administrators.  As well, the level of competition within CCL seasonal year play has helped prepare our club for additional successes at the regional level, with six Arlington teams participating in regional competition.”

In just its second year of existence, results from the CCL II division were equally competitive. Arlington Soccer Association and Loudoun Soccer jockeyed for the top position throughout the fall season, with Arlington ultimately prevailing by just five points as the CCL II Overall Fall Club Champion. Mirroring the CCL results, Arlington Soccer Association earned the CCL II Boys Overall Championship, and Loudoun the Girls Overall Championship.

Due to expansion within CCL II, the league restructured the spring season to accommodate two conferences: CCL II COPA and CCL II GLORO. Under the new conference structure, LMVSC edged out CCL II newcomer FCSC United (Fauquier County Soccer Club) by just five points to claim the CCL II Overall COPA Championship title. The GLORO division was an even tighter race, with Arlington taking the title by a mere two point margin of victory.

“No other league provides as high a quality environment for every team, regardless of age and level, than does CCL,” shared LMVSC Technical Director Esteban Maldonado. “It was great for us to see our CCL II teams doing well this season, and it is refreshing to see CCL II players competing for CCL roster spots each year at tryouts and during the season.”

The CCL II gender championships followed the same competitive breakdown. SYA and Arlington snuck away with one point margins of victory to claim the COPA and GLORO Boys Championships, respectively. LMVSC secured the COPA Girls Championship, while Loudoun and Arlington Soccer concluded the GLORO Girls Conference in a draw.

“It’s a special feeling to see such tight competition amongst our clubs,” said CCL President Danny Beamer. “We know that these results are the product of proper player and club development, as well as leadership from soccer professionals. We are thrilled to see the standards of excellence raised in CCL and the same excellence taking hold in CCL II.”
