5 State Titles for Juniors
The Wizards Juniors teams recently finished up playing in the Kansas State Cup tournament. Of the 6 Juniors' teams that competed, 5 came away as state champions, with the 6th team finishing as runners up. The U13 Juniors team outscored their opponents 25-4 on route to their state title this year. The U15 Juniors team won their quarterfinal 2-0 then moved onto a big 10-0 win in their semifinal game. They pulled out another 2-0 win in the state finals to claim the title. The U-16 Juniors, who lost in the semifinals last year made it one step further this year, making it to the finals, but ended up losing to KCFC Rangers 2-1 in the finals. The U-17 Juniors team were able to defend their state title they won as U-16s, defeating KCFC Strikers (the same team they defeated last year) in the finals 1-0. In their 4 team group, the U-18 Juniors team were able to defender their state title, winning their semifinal 8-3, and the final 3-0 over KCFC Athletics. Like last year, the Juniors has a U-19 team competing in State Cup as well. Like last year, they only had to win 1 game to win the state title beating KCFC Challenger 3-2 in the final.
