2010 MYSA State Cup Results
The 2010 State Cup is pretty much in the books. 169 Minnesota teams participated in the tournament playing 275 games over a 5 week period. The winners of Minnesota’s State Cup get a berth into the USYSA Regional competition starting June 25, in Dayton, Ohio.
Tom Moriarty, MYSA Tournament Director, said the Lucy Winton Bell location worked out well. “The difficulty is always finding a 6-field site,” stated Moriarty. “We used Coon Rapids for a couple of years and now we’ve been here 2 years. If we could find an 8-field site that would be ideal but it’s always difficult early in the season.
Rain and lightning last Saturday morning delayed a number of semifinals which then needed to be played in the time slot for the finals on Sunday. Those finals were rescheduled to tonight except for the U-17 Boys which ends up being rescheduled to next week. However, U-17 teams teams are in a unique situation as it’s Minnesota’s year to draw the wild card in Region II. So both the winner and the loser of that game will travel to the Regionals.
The U-19 Women’s Championship game between MTA and Woodbury will be played Saturday, June 5. There is only one U-19 Men’s team which is the Minnesota Thunder Academy. They will get an automatic berth into the regional competition.
