State Cup Finalists - FC Long Beach
FC Long Beach went 60 minutes without giving up a goal, and then two 10 minute period and ended with a 0-0 draw at regulation. PQ Premier won the game by 1 goal in Penalty Kicks.
2nd place is a huge accomplishment and something that no other team has done. To be one of the two teams out of the entire pool of teams in this tournament, is amazing and something our girls, our parents and our entire club should be very proud of. Our team continues to make history in our club, now by being the first team to make it to the championship game.
I am very proud of these girls. The work and dedication is unmatched and they continue to improve as players and young athletes.
Congratulations to FC Long Beach

FC Long Beach Grass Stains make it to the Cal South State Cup Championship Game
Congratulations to the LB Grass Stains for making it all the way to the Championship game.
We had our hands full in each of our games, great competition all the way through this tournament. An especially exciting game against Force in the Semi-Final game.
We had several different players stepping up to get game winning goals in this tournament, goals are precious and we are so excited with those who were able to find the back of the net so far in this tournament. I have to say that our defense was just outstanding. Giving up 1 goal (and that was on a PK, no goals conceded in the run of play) in 8 games is amazing in a tournament like this, and I'm so proud of these girls. Playing some games with only 1 substitute and coming out against the odds.
Keep up the great work ladies, we have 1 more game to win before we are the State Cup Champions.
Parents, thank you for your dedication and time over the last several weeks.
I love Lancaster.......where the Buffalo roam.

Why do the standings only show 29 points when the girls have earned 32 points???
Our game on November 10, 2007 against the Lions Soccer Academy was played in its entirety and without incident. The Grass Stains won that game 3-0 on the field. The following Tuesday we were notified that LSA had filed a protest, and 3 points were taken away from the girls. This protest and awarding of points to LSA was based on a technicality, not performance on the field.
We cannot speak on the details of this situation as it is currently under appeal, we want you to know the truth that our Grass Stains held LSA to zero goals in our last 3 games played against them. Our last three games have resulted in Grass Stains victories by the scores of 2-0, 1-0 and 3-0. The action to take our 3-0 victory on November 10th and change the standings to reflect a 0-1 loss to LSA is a result of what adults could do with a pen behind a desk, instead of letting the children play the game on the field.
Ladies, I’m so proud of you and of your 10-2-2 record, you earned every single point of the 32 points.
