TULSA, Oklahoma — Idaho’s first US Youth Soccer Regional Champions will begin their quest to win Idaho’s first US Youth Soccer National Championship.
The U19 FC NovaNationals girls will face Pennsylvania’s Beadling SC Thunder on opening day of the tournament.
The five-time Pennsylvania state champions are no stranger to the US Youth Soccer National Championships (USYSNC), Beadling making their third straight appearance at the USYSNC tournament.
At the Region I Championships back in June, Beadling did not concede a single goal in group play.
In the knockout round, Beadling defeated West Virginia’s MUSC Shox 4-3 to advance to the championship game.
The final saw Beadling struggle defensively against in-state rival Continental FC Premier 95. It took two overtime rounds and a penalty kick shootout to give Beadling SC the victory.
FC NovaNationals vs. Beadling SC Thunder will kick off Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. MT. Watch the game live here (link will become active on Tuesday).
