Ohio Elite Showcase - "Scouting Report"

The brackets have been published for the upcoming Ohio Elite College Showcase.   We are in the "Vapor" group and will play:

  • Cleveland Futbol Club from Strongsville, OH which is a far southwestern suburb of Cleveland.
  • Javanon SC.   Name sounds familiar but just can't place them?
  • Ohio Galaxies from Alpha, OH, just east of Dayton, OH

Looks to be a well matched bracket.


Game #1: Fri. Feb 19 - Cleveland FC

Here's the club website:       Cleveland Futbol Club
Here's the team's website:  Cleveland FC 91/92


They are currently ranked number 4 in Ohio North and 38th in Region II by NationalSoccerRanking.com  while Soccer Girls has them at number 4 in Ohio North but unranked in Region II.   They are a current ON State Cup Semi-Finalist from last spring.   We have played this team four times since 2006.   They won 2-1 in a very windy game in MRL two years ago while our girls were victorious by the same 2-1 score in the spring of 2007.  In the MRL Spring 2006, the girls lost a 2-1 decision.  Mockingbird came away with a 3-0 victory at last year's Ohio Elite Showcase.  CFC finished at the bottom of the Premier Division spring 2008 and were relegated to the First Division this past season where they were last in a field of nine with a 2-5-1 record.

Game #2: Sat. Feb. 20 - Javanon

Here's the club website:     Javanon Soccer Club
Here's the team's website:  None found yet.

Javanon is ranked 35th in Region II by NationalSoccerRanking.com and 46th by  Soccer Girls.    These two teams have played 14 matches over the years and with one exception they were all low scoring affairs with a total of 18 goals in the 14 games; seven were in one game, a 4 - 3 "shootout".    Mockingbird trails with 3 wins, 6 losses and 5 ties.   Surprisingly, these two rivals have met only once since May 2005 and that was a 1 - 0 Mockingbird victory in pool play in the U15 State Cup.

Game #3: Sun. Feb 21 - Ohio Galaxies

Here's the club website:       Ohio Galaxies FC 
Here's the team's website:  Ohio Galaxies Elite 91

This team is unranked in both Region II and Ohio South but they do have a competitive record.  They played in the MRL First Division Red last spring finishing 6th of 8 teams.   Games last spring against common opponents include a 2 - 2 draw with Dakota Gold Destiny whom Mockingbird defeated 4 - 2 at Regionals.   They also drew Kings SA Premier 1 - 1 whom our girls beat 4 - 0 in the semi finals of last year's Kentucky State Cup.
