The U16G Seacoast United Mariners soccer team is headed to the US Club Soccer National Cup XII Finals from July 18-21, 2013 in Aurora, CO. This talented group of young ladies, which features some of the top premier players in Maine, won the US Club National Cup XII Northeast Regional over Memorial Day weekend in LaGrangeville, NY, shutting-out their opponents 16-0 over 4 games.
This will be the Mariners second try in less than a year at a national title — they made it to the final championship round of the United Soccer League Super-Y Nationals this past December where they conceded to a talented Atlanta team.
Members of the team hail from across the state—Windham having the most representation with six players. They include forwards Melissa Morton and Jenna Soucy, mid-fielders Cassie Symonds and Shannon Valente, defender Jordan Symonds, and goalkeeper Elizabeth Mycock. The Seacoast United Mariners are coached by James Blackwell.
The Mariners have competed in 42 games since their season began in late November—with a record of 28-9-5.
