Richmond, Va. – Division championships were decided on Sunday at the 2020 Jefferson Cup U10-U15 Boys Weekend. A total of 448 teams from throughout the United State and Canada competed across 52 divisions in the prestigious spring kickoff event hosted by the Richmond Strikers.

After kicking off the weekend with a pair of group games on Saturday, teams earned their way into the championship matches with a decisive final group game or a semifinal victory on Sunday morning. When things were all said and done on Sunday afternoon, 44 different clubs from 12 different U.S. states and a pair of Canadian clubs had at least one team go home as Jefferson Cup champions.

North Carolina FC led all clubs with three division championships, taking top honors in the U-13 Platinum White Division, the U-14 Platinum Black Division and the U-15 Elite Division. The club also had five more teams place 2nd in their respective divisions, going home as finalists.

Maryland club Pipeline SC and New Jersey’s STA-MUSC both managed the improbable feat of having two different teams win Championship Division titles on the same weekend, the highest possible honor in each age group.

Pipeline SC Pre-Academy sides won it all in the U-11 and U-13 Championship Divisions, both winning four straight games against a series of high-level opponents. Pipeline’s U-11 team racked up 19 goals on the weekend, including a 4-goal outburst in the final against North Carolina FC 09 Pre-DA South. Pipeline’s U-13 squad outscored opponents 13-2 overall, culminating with a 2-0 clean sheet victory against Wake FC 07 Blue in the title match.

The STA-MUSC Boys ECNL program shined at the event, as the ECNL Northeast Conference squads came out on top in the Jefferson Cup’s U-14 and U-15 Championship Divisions. In a testament to the Jeff Cup’s history of well-balanced competition, both STA-MUSC teams faced major challenges in group play, as the U-14s went 2-0-1 and the U-15s advanced to the final on tiebreaker after posting a 2-1-0 record in Group A.

In addition to Pipeline and STA-MUSC, four more clubs had two teams each win division titles: Bethesda SC, CT Rush, PA Dominion FC and United Mount Pleasant.

Maryland’s Bethesda SC had teams claim the U-11 Juniors Division and the U-12 Championship Division titles. CT Rush sides won the U-12 Premier Division and U-15 Platinum Black Division. PA Dominion FC took top honors in the U-13 Classic Division and U-15 Superior Division. South Carolina club United Mount Pleasant had teams capture the U-10 Elite Division and U-13 Superior Black Division championships.
