The Black Watch Premier-Buffalo u19 Boys Arsenal pulls off a State Cup Championship on goal differential.  The Arsenal, United FC and Lancaster FC all finished the weekend 2-1 and 6 points.  With the Arsenal knowing that only a 2-0 win or better on the final day vs Lancaster FC would give them the championship, they came through and got the victory with the much needed score of 2-0.  Through the tie-braking procedure the Arsenal advance to the Regioal Championship on a +5 Goal differential.  United FC finished with a +4 while Lancaster FC finished +3.  The Arsenal will now head to Kingston, Rhode Island June 26 - July 1 for the 2014 US Youth Soccer Region I Championships.

 

The u18 Girls Saints and u19 Girls Jags saw their State Cup hopes dashed on the final day finishing runners up.  The Saints needed a win on the final day but unfortunately found themselves in a tie and a second place finish.  The Jags needed a 2-0 win to secure their third straight State Cup Championship, but were only able to end the final game with a 1-0 win.

Most memorable Black Watch moment: My most memorable Black Watch moment was winning State Cup in 2012. That was the first time I had ever been to State Cup and the Empire Academy team was supposed to win the championship. We ended up beating them 5-1 as well as beating all of the other teams. Overcoming adversity with my team mates and lifting the cup for the first time is a moment I am never going to forget!
