DENVER, CO - For the third consecutive season, Tennessee Soccer Club has a team that finished its season as National Champions.
This morning the 2003 Boys ECNL team won the Elite National Premier League (ENPL) National Championship game in Denver, CO. They earned their way to the semi-final weekend after winning their group and quarterfinal game of the Eastern Regional in Boston last week.
TSC’s semi-final matchup was against a very good Napa Valley Soccer Academy team that they defeated 2-1. This morning in the final they faced Soccer Association of Columbia and won 1-0.
"I am so proud of this group of young men,” said 2003 Boys Coach and TSC Executive Director Stuart Brown. "They have worked incredibly hard and deserve to be National Champions! This is a special moment and I couldn't be happier for them.”
This 2003 Boys team has experienced success all year in various competitions. They finished in first place in the Tennessee State Soccer Association (TSSA) State League and then went on to win the TSSA State Cup. They finished in second place in the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) in their first year associated with he prestigious league.
This national championship is the third in three consecutive seasons for TSC. In 2016 and 2017, the 1998 Girls Showcase and 1999 Girls Showcase teams each won a national championship.
"Winning our third national championship in three consecutive seasons says a lot about our club,” said Brown. We talk about Developing Excellence in our players all the time and this is another on-field example of that mission coming to life.”
