Congratulations to the Ridge Youth Soccer Club Boys 00/01 Red Falcons! After winning FYSA Division I Region C Cup they advanced to theFlorida President’s Cup. They played the Region A Cup winner, Miami Lakes Parma on Saturday, April 11th. After falling behind 0-2 in the first 15 minutes they showed their resiliency and composure and dominated the next 15 minutes of the game scoring three goals and going into halftime with a 3-2 lead. The coaches challenged them to get the insurance goal early in the second half and the team responded scoring inside of 10 minutes to go ahead 4-2. Miami Lakes pushed hard for the remainder of the game and scored to bring the game within one, to 4-3. That is as close as they would get though as time expired with a fantastic come from behind victory for the B14 Red Falcons. With that win the boys advanced to play the winner of the Region B Cup champions Leg AZ from Gainesville and the Region D Cup winner, Warner, from North Florida. Leg AZ won and brought the Region C Cup champion RYSC Falcons, number 16 in the state against the Region B Cup champion, number 18 in the state Leg AZ. It was another fantastic game with all the drama and intensity you would hope for from a championship game of this magnitude. Once again the Falcons found themselves behind early on a PK given at about 20 minutes into the game. Leg AZ was up 0-1. And that score held until halftime. We made a formation change at halftime and switched to two forwards which really made a difference. We dominated the second half and scored early to tie that game at 1 apiece. Leg AZ scored again several minutes later to go back on top 1-2. But the Falcons soared on and tied it up just a few minutes later. With momentum on our side we pressed hard for the winning goal and almost had it with their goalkeeper coming up with a huge save close range. Time expired and the game went into overtime. We held the momentum going into OT and keep the pressure on but couldn’t get that elusive third goal. Midway through the OT the team switched sides the game still knotted at 2 and a PK shootout was looking likely. Then the break finally came. With about 6 minutes left in the second overtime period the ball came in from the left corner of the field and Leg AZ failed to clear the ball adequately, the ball bounced around in front of the goal and eventually landed at the foot of our team. The ball was slotted home for the crucial 3-2 lead with only a few minutes to go. The last 5 minutes of the game so Leg AZ throw everything at us but to no avail. The RYSC Boys U00/01 Red team was victorious! Both of the games were incredible to watch and to be part of. It had lead changes, plenty of goals, momentum swings, everything. It was so intense, a real nail biter. The boys all played amazingly. Everyone stepped up. Everyone gave their all. Great work to all the players, coaches, parents, and fans. Today is a day to be proud of your team and your club!
