State cup play-in (updated and revised!)

There is a great change for us.  I wish I had a snapshot of the league page a few days ago to see exactly what happened.  There must have been a scoring error which was later corrected.  SCUFC 93 Boys Elite has changed to 19 points (tied with us). With tie breaking procedures, we are now the 5th place team in the league (7th overall).

This now puts us playing Palmetto United Premier (formally Carolina Select.)  This was the team that beat us in in round 1 of State Cup last year.  We will likely be playing in Rock Hill instead of Greenville.

Here are the Play-in game pairings:

They have also decided to extend the play-in game range to include two weekends. Games may be played 11/27 to 12/4.  The higher seeded team gets to pick the venue while both coaches agree on date and time.

Upcoming League & State-cup Info

The league results are in, and we ended up in 6th place.  6th place is the last playoff position.

The two Region III Premier teams (CESA and Palmetto United / formerly Carolina Select club) will come back for State Cup and complete the 8-team playoff bracket.   CESA is ranked higher in the Region III standings, so they will be #1.

Once the top teams are added, we'll be seeded #8. By the rules: "23-c. The highest seeded teams through number 4 will play their first round match at their home field."  It appears we will be traveling to Greenville on Dec 4th to play CESA Premier.

Info for the rest of the fall league:
