ORLANDO, FL – The Tennessee Soccer Club 2004 Murfreesboro Girls Showcase team advanced to the United States Youth Soccer (USYS) National Championship Semifinal Thursday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL.
The Murfreesboro team finished on top of their group with two wins and a tie, thus earning a spot in the National Semifinal game on Saturday. They will face Penn FC Youth 2004 Lightning at 10:30 am EDT for a chance to play for the National Championship on Sunday.
“We are incredibly proud of these girls and all they have accomplished thus far,” said Executive Director Stuart Brown. “Everyone back home is rooting them on to win two more games and bring home the National Championship!”
The 2004 Murfreesboro team, coached by Enrique Suarez, won the Tennessee State Cup Championship at the beginning of June and performed well at the USYS Southern Regional Championships in late June, setting the stage for their run at the National Championships. Both events were hosted in Murfreesboro, TN at the Richard Siegel Soccer Complex, one of the nation’s finest soccer facilities.
TSC is no stranger to success at this level, having previously crowned three national championship teams.
