2015 FarWest Regional Championship Update
Greetings Seattle United Families:
I would like to take a minute to update you on the club's progress at the USYS Region IV Championships. USYS divides the country into four geographic regions; Region IV is comprised of the 14 most western states. Regional qualification is via winning a state championship or FarWest League title. This year, Boise is host to the Region IV Championships. A Regional championship is qualification for the USYS national championship tournament.

In 2013, SU sent one team to Regionals. Last year, two of our teams qualified. This year, seven teams from Seattle United qualified for Regionals, easily the most teams from any Washington State club.

Despite even records and stellar play, both B96 Copa and B00 Copa failed to move out of their respective six-team groups.

Our remaining five teams moved from group stage to quarterfinals. Yesterday, G98 Copa lost to a very good squad from Utah who have earned a spot in the GU16 championship match. G01 Copa won their group, but lost their quarterfinal knockout match when an early foul resulted in a red card, forcing them to play shorthanded in 96 degree heat for the remainder of the match. It was an extraordinary and memorable effort by these young women who played with incredible heart.

G02 Copa won their group, and then won a thriller in quarterfinal action, winning a PK shootout, 3-2, against SC Del Sol (CA), with GK Lucy VanNewkirk making the game-winning stop. This morning they battled to a scoreless draw with San Diego Surf. At the end of the first 10 minute OT, Surf nicked a goal. Copa battled back, but Surf grabbed a second goal in the second OT, to close out the match.

B02 Copa won their group, surrendering a single goal, and then won 1-0 in a quarterfinal match against Eastside Timbers (OR). In this morning's semi-final match, they played to a scoreless draw against Real Colorado. With no scoring in two overtime periods, the game went to a PK shootout. All SU takers converted their shots, and goalkeeper Leo Homar preserved the win with a crucial save. B02 Copa play tomorrow at 8:00 AM (local time) for a shot at a Region IV Championship.

B98 Copa went 2-1 in group play, came out strong in quarterfinals action, beating West Coast SC (CA), 3-1, and this morning dispatched Scottsdale Blackhawks (AZ) in the semis, to move into the BU16 championship match tomorrow morning at 10:30 PDT.

We have just learned that the B98 Copa game will streamed live by USYS at 10:30 PDT. Please click here to access the game. Please make time to watch this amazing team look to add to its WYS State Championship, RCL League championship, Dallas Cup win and other titles this year.

Congratulations to all seven teams and their coaches for representing their club so well, and thank you to all parents and siblings here in Boise in support of their teams and club. You've all done us proud.

  • “In a short period of time, Seattle United has become part of the fabric of Seattle itself. Seattle United kids represent every neighborhood of the city, every economic strata, and nearly every public and private school citywide. In short, our club is as diverse as our own great city. Our players are united when they put on their uniforms, and that sense of community is not only shared by our families, but is something that they regularly tell me that they appreciate and value. I am humbled to be a part of what is happening at Seattle United.”
