EPIC TEAMS MADE IT TO FINALS IN Northern Virginia Soccer Club Mid-County Fall Classic

Epic Sporting Stars had sent 2 teams to the Northern Virginia Soccer Club (NVSC) Mid-County Fall Classic November 17th and 18th 2018... (EPIC 2005 and EPIC 2007).  Both teams had done really well in the group stages of the tournament which took place on day one. EPIC 2005 won 3-0 in their first match, then defeated Louden Soccer Club  3-1in their second match.  The 2 wins advanced EPIC 2005 to the semi finals, where they defeated tournament host club Northern Virginia Soccer Club 3-1... This victory landed the 2005s in the finals against Alexandria, whom they had previously beaten on day one... Needless to say, with the opposing team adding "guest players" during the finals, it didn't appear to be the same team... coupled with some questionable refereeing, EPIC 2005 faced adversity that unfortunately caused them to go down 2 goals early in the first half, and eventually fell short in the finals 2-0...  It was clear that EPIC had majority of the possession and played beautiful futbol, but sometimes the better team doesn't win...

Ironically, EPIC 2007 had a similar run in this tournament...  They defeated Alexandria 3-1 in game 1, then won their second game 4-1...with 2 wins on day one, EPIC 2007 finds themselves in the Semi-Finals vs tournament hosts Northern Virginia Soccer Club...With a lot of connected passes, good defending, and great finishing, EPIC won the Semi-Final match 3-1 and advances to the finals... Just like the 2005, EPIC 2007 had to play against Alexandria a second time, but in the finals...  Similar to what happened to 2005s, the 2007s opponents were not the same as the previous day, as a matter of fact, out of 9 players who started, it appeared as if there were 6 starters who did not play at all on the previous day.  EPIC 2005 battled through this, playing great futbol, but unfortunately fell short 3-2 in the Finals... There were many parents from other teams that stayed behind to watch the finals who came to congratulate the EPIC players for a good showing in the tournament... As stated earlier, sometimes the best team doesn't always win...

Congrats EPIC, job well done....
