Congratulations to all GBUFC teams for a great showing the last 2 weeks, playing and competing to appear in the Final Four of the NYSW 2016 State Cup.
Last year, GBUFC had 3 teams qualify. For the first time ever, 5 teams from Binghamton will travel to Cortland June 4, 5 & 6th to play and compete with the best of the best of New York State West in the Final Four. We will be represented by the GBUFC Select: U12 Girls, U14 Girls, U15 Girls, U14 Boys & U15 Boys.
U12G (1st Trip)
U14G (3rd Trip) (2 Cups)
U15G (4th Trip) (2 Cups)
U14B (3rd Trip)
U15B (1st Trip)
This weekend, the U15 Boys played in a very contentious game and pulled through. They played the #1 seeded team and defending champions from Baldwinsville. Following two overtimes, and a series of recent injuries and concussions they prevailed after 5 penalty kicks to win the game.
The U14 Girls are also making their mark. This is the 1st time EVER Binghamton will send a team to the National Championship Finals in Texas to compete against the top youth teams in the COUNTRY. The U14 Girls continue to set the standards for our area and how far we can go.
GBUFC’s results are a testament to our coaches and players’ effort and dedication with every practice, game and tournament. We should be proud of what we have been doing to achieve this level of competition. I am very excited about the future and the way we are setting the standards around the state. GBUFC is building a great program for the Binghamton Area and giving our kids the opportunities, coaches, and venues they need to excel in the game.
Please join me in congratulating all five teams on their great accomplishment and let’s wish them the best in Cortland. Last year, GBUFC won 1 State Cup. Let’s bring home 5 this year!
Thank you all for all that you do and GOOD LUCK!
