2016 FINAL REGION I CHAMPIONS LEAGUE ELITE DIVISION GAME: 3 - 1 WIN
April 29, 2016 - Conshohocken, PA: With the combination of High School soccer, senioritits, PROM, College preparation and playing soccer in a high level USYS Regiona l Champions League; these young players braved 3.5 hours of rush hour traffic on a Friday afternoon heading to Philadelphia to play their Final Region I Champions regular season game. Saddled with a crew of only 14 players (The few, The Proud, The Competitive), they marched up I--95 North toward PA. Lower Marion Magic sitting in 2nd Place in the Division, anticipating yet another win to propell them to the top of the league, overlooked this a small contingency of the Barca FC 97 ELite U18 team. What was fueling Barca 97 Elite? One could say the pride of ending the season a top of local rivals Arlington Impact Red and MSC Falcons of Maryland. Pride in your team and Pride in your club can go a long way. Took to the field they did! After 90 minutes of brilliant moments of play on both sides, the Barca Boys shattered the hopes of the home town team with a 3-1 win. Baltimore Celtics now can lay claim to another Region I Champions League title, many thanks to Barca FC. A job well done boys!!
