“I am delighted for all the players and coaches who have achieved success this past weekend,” commented Seacoast United Director of Coaching Iain Scott.  “Over the last year the players have embraced the new demanding training environment and as a result they have reaped the rewards with victories right across the age groups.  The hard work starts now maintaining the high standards that have been set.”

Between the boys and girls divisions, Seacoast United had teams competing in 10 of 14 possible state final matches from ages U12-U18.

With the U17 and U18 Finals taking place on Thursday evening under perfect 75 degree weather, Saturday’s matches were played in extremely rough conditions.  Driving winds and pouring rain drenched the fields at the Northeast Athletic Club complex in Pembroke as all games kicked off on time.

Seacoast United would also like to recognize the U12 and U17 boys and U12 girls, who all had reached the finals but each suffered a difficult loss at the hands of their opponents.  The U12 girls will extend their season into July with the trip to Regionals later in the month as well, as New Hampshire received the wild card entry into the tournament within the U12G 8v8 division.  

Girls Coaching Director Chris Scott was over the moon with the success encountered by all of the girls teams. 

“It is a great day for Seacoast United’s girls program," noted Scott.  "We are extremely proud of all the teams in making it this far to be part of the Final, however all of our teams showed great courage and determination in their games to get the results that they deserved. We have put a great emphasis on our girl’s program in this past year, and yet again Seacoast United has shown that they are the top girls program in NH. All of the coaches and players have worked extremely hard to achieve this success, and I am delighted for everyone. Congratulations to all players and coaches on their success, and we now look forward to representing NH well in the Regional Championships.”
