Presidents Cup

Coming off a state championship, the Newburyport FC U-13 soccer team went to Pittsburgh over the weekend to compete in the Presidents Cup Region 1 tournament, which brings some of the top youth teams in the country together to help determine a national champion. Newburyport wound up going 1-3 in its four games, losing the first three before winning the last. In the first game, Newburyport lost 2-0 to Kirkwood KSC Power from Delaware in a game that coach Sean Harrington described as evenly matched from start to finish. In the second game, Newburyport got blown out 8-0 by Capa Casa 2K United from Harrisburg, Pa., who went on to win the whole tournament and that Harrington described as phenomenal. Though Day 1 didn’t go very well, Newburyport bounced back for Day 2, first losing a tight 3-2 game to Kearney United from New Jersey in which Newburyport led 2-1 before Kearney tied it and then eventually scored the game winner late, and then after that Newburyport finished the tournament with a dominating 3-0 win over Foothills from Pittsburgh.
