U-11 Boys Win State Title:The PA Classics Panthers Revolution, coached by Mike Watt, took the EPYSA State Cup title in May with a convincing 2-0 win over Lower Merion. During the preliminary rounds the team won games against West Chester 2-0, BSA Rage 8-1, VE 8-0, and PSC Coppa 9-0. The team advanced through the quarterfinals round with a 3-0 victory over TE, then breezed into the finals with a 3-0 win over Southampton in the semi-finals. The 2-0 win over Lower Merion was revenge for a loss in the U10 state title game the year before.
The team’s outdoor state title run was a great wrap up to a year of success for this team that included being champions of the YMS Columbus Day Cup and winning the EPYSA Indoor State Championship in January.
