The Cascade FC Boys B96 Soccer Team won the U15 Championship the weekend of February 18 at Portland, Ore., in a well-played and challenging finals match. More than 100 teams and 1,600 players from Oregon and Washington were involved in the second-annual Givova Pacific Coast Super Cup, a special event for players, clubs and college coaches.

This year, the winners were nearly evenly split between Oregon and Washington teams. Five of the champions came from the Puget Sound Premier League and six hailed from the Oregon Premier League. Last year, the PSPL took home most of the championship cups.

The second leg and finals took place in the Portland region over the President’s Day holiday weekend. The first leg was held at Starfire, near Seattle, at the end of January. All teams played four matches over two legs, but 22 teams got a fifth match when they qualified for the Super Cup finals.

The fast-paced, physical and skillful display of all the teams was a testament to the clubs and coaches that have developed these players.

Cascade FC Boys B96, which includes players from Duvall, Carnation, Snoqualmie, Redmond and North Bend, shook up conventional wisdom and figured out how to beat the heavily favored U15 Tynecastle FC Boys in the finals, 2-1. This finals match was the only one in the tournament that pitted all PSPL teams.
