THREE West Seattle soccer teams in championship matches!

Turns out the West Seattle Cheetahs (most recent WSB story here) aren’t the only West Seattle team playing in the state recreational-soccer championships at the Starfire complex in Tukwila this weekend —

That’s the U17 West Seattle Xtreme. They play Avanti United for the title in their class at 3:45 tomorrow. Then the Cheetahs’ (U12 girls) game vs. the Tracyton Tornadoes is at 9:15 Sunday morning, and at 3:45 pm Sunday, the U18 Eagles are up:

Their title game is against the Ambush. Tim McMonigle of the West Seattle Soccer Club says, “This is a big deal, as we have never had this many teams vying to win at the state level. These teams have won our district (District III), and then were one of the top two teams after the semi-finals against other District winners from around the state, and are now the top two teams in the state. The winner can rightfully say they are the best in the state for recreational soccer for their age group.” If you plan to go cheer them on, admission is $5 for 12 and up, parking is $5 unless you are a Starfire member.

    Great job boys (or should it be men?) and girls. And just as a side note, the Xtreme team managed to limp through this tournament with several key players injured and with few subs. In the final game last Sunday in Burlington against the rested #1 team, they had one sub (injured), had played in the morning, and still won 4 to 1. Looking forward to tomorrow. Good luck to all of our teams this weekend.

    Not only have the players done a great job to get to this demanding level of soccer here’s a shout out to all the fabulous adults who support the West Seattle Soccer Club!!!

    Thanks to our coaches, team coordinators, local refs and especially the board of diretors and its committees who keep the West Seattle Soccer Club programing so strong for our youth.

    Update: The BU-17 Xtreme ’91 played terrific soccer but fell to the Avanti United 4-2 yesterday afternoon. On a snow covered pitch this morning, the GU-12 Cheetah’s battled the Tornados to a 1-1 stalemate through regulation play and two 10-minute overtime periods. What a game!! The championship was settled on penalty kicks – 3-2 Tornados. The BU18 Eagles take the field against the Ambush at 3:45pm this afternoon. GO WSSC!!
