State Champions. It is a title that few can say they hold. Now the Kutis Academy Gold U16 Boys team can proudly add it to their resume. They beat a Missouri Rush team in double overtime to take the state title and now move on to regional play in Ohio. It wasn’t an easy road.
Kutis won all three of their games in pool play scoring 10 goals while allowing just one. Standing between them and the finals was SLSG Premier and SLSG Elite. They defeated each with clean sheets 1-0 in the quarterfinals and semifinals (respectively) before beating Mo Rush 2-1 in the finals. Photos from the match can be seen by clicking HERE.
The U16 team is coached by Mark Tracy and Marc Hager. The team now moves on to compete June 21-25 at the US Youth Soccer Region II Championships at John Ankeney Soccer Complex in Beavercreek, Ohio. Daily reports and complete results from the tournament will be available on http://Championships.USYouthSoccer.org/RegionII.
