The Fever United ‘05 Girls - Penn team participated in the 2018 National Cup being held in Aurora, Colorado this past weekend. A total of 206 teams from 144 clubs were represented across 35 states, stretching from Hawaii to Maine. They converged at Aurora Sports Park, July 20-24, all vying to ultimately hold the Doug Hamilton Memorial Trophy. This past weekend marked the conclusion of a challenging journey for these participating teams, as all qualified through a National Cup XVII Regional or qualifying state cup competition.
The 17th annual National Cup Finals saw the largest tournament field in the event's history, featuring group play across 22 divisions with Super Groups (most competitive) and Premier Groups for the 13-U through 18/19-U age groups, before entering the knock-out round.
The Fever United '05 Girls advanced to the championship where they defeated FC Stars '05 Girls from Massachusetts 2-1 in double overtime to claim the championship trophy. Just to put this win in perspective for you, US Club Soccer stated that between the girls and boys in (16) years of National Cup competition there were very few winners from North Texas or South Texas before this year, (3) total. Our team is the 4th.
Massive accomplishment!!! Congratulations to the Fever United ‘05 Girls for winning a national championship in the U13G Super Group! Our club is a national champion! Fever Proud!
