The U-14s consistently gave strong performances all season long.  They didn’t lose more than one game in a month, and their first loss came with just six games left in the season.  The U-14s finished fourth best in their age group nationally.

The U-16s had an unforgettable season, finishing the regular season with a 23-1-2 record.  They finished first in the Atlantic Conference and outscored their opponents a combined 74-19.  With a conference leading 2.73 goals scored per game, the U-16s cruised into the playoffs.

The playoffs were going well for the U-16s, with a riveting 2-1 victory in the semifinals in a game that saw the three goals scored in the first 10 minutes.  The U-16s then ran into FC Dallas in the championship when New York suffered a 4-0 loss.  Despite the 4-0 loss, the U-16s are maintained their top national rank.
