TSC HURRICANE 97 ECNL SHUBERT PLACES 7TH AT ECNL NATIONALS!!!
JUNE 27, 2012 in WAUKEGAN, IL - The TSC Hurricane ECNL 97 Shubert girls rebounded from a 1-0 deficit to defeat Texas Conference rival Dallas Texans 2-1 capturing 7th Place in their fourth and final game at the ECNL National Championship Event. The win followed a pair of 1-3 losses to 13th ranked Crossfire Premier (in quarters) and 1st ranked Gwinnett Soccer Association (for 5th Place consolation), scores of which involved PKs and an own goal and did not depict the competitiveness of play. In round one TSCH 97 had knocked off 5th ranked West Coast FC to advance to the Elite 8.
During this 2011-2012 season of ECNL U15 competition the 97 girls finished third in the Texas Conference by a tiny .03 margin behind second place Dallas Texans (Dallas Sting was 1st). They posted an ECNL record of 18 wins, four ties and six losses, scored 53 goals and suffered 30 against for a +23 goal differential. The defense had 14 shutouts, two of which were for ties to claim points. Finishing 12th place in the ECNL A-Flight league to earn a Nationals top 16 bid and placing 7th at the Championships in their maiden year of the TSC-Hurricane merger and in the ECNL is an outstanding outcome for this talented group. CONGRATULATIONS LADIES!!!
