As with all of our stories for this weekend’s competition, we attempted to predict results of the games using our partner website Report-a-Score.com’s analytical tools.

+ Editor’s Note: We are compiling a list of top performing players for additional story content and recognition. If you coached in State Cup or are a licensed coach/scout who watched games and have opinions on players, please submit up to two (2) players per team here by Tuesday, November 4 at noon.

We’ll have several more stories on specific games and related content from interviews with coaches and VYSA officials in the coming days, but for now, here’s a summary of results, and how reality on the field was far more important than any computer formula trying to pick winners.

Under-15s

Result:

FC Virginia United Premier 1-0 Herndon United

RaS Prediction:

FC Virginia 4, Herndon United 1

RaS had predicted a heavy win for FC Virginia over Herndon United in the final of the Under-15s girls competition, but it did not quite prove to be the case as Virginia squeaked by with a 1-0 win. The victors maintained their clean sheet streak throughout the tournament with the triumph, but Herndon can hold their heads high after a superb display in difficult conditions.

Under-16s

Result:

Loudoun 98 Red 4-3 (PKs) BRYC 98 Elite

RaS Prediction:

Loudoun 1, BRYC 1

The first game of the day saw Loudoun and BRYC go the distance in the Under-16s age category, as neither regulation time nor overtime could separate the two teams. In the end, penalties were required, and Loudoun triumphed after a very even game between two closely matched sides.

Under-17s

Result:

VSA Heat 97 West 0-1 McLean Green

RaS Prediction:

VSA Heat 3, McLean 1

McLean were not expected by RaS to take victory in their Under-17s final against VSA, but they did so by a one-goal margin after a tight clash between two of the top eight seeds. However, No. 7 McLean prevailed, and will take home a state championship.

Under-18s

Result:

PWSI Courage 96 1-2 McLean Green

RaS Prediction:

McLean 2, PWSI 1

An age group above, McLean’s Under-18s also will travel home with a state championship as they defeated PWSI 2-1. The final saw McLean concede a goal for the first time in the tournament, but they were not to be denied victory. It was also a result and scoreline correctly predicted by RaS.
