The EDP Cup Fall Showcase Girls 2019 concluded after two days of competition involving  almost 300 participating teams playing 384 games. Participating teams traveled from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Florida. In addition, international teams came from Ontario and Quebec in Canada.

 

As part of EDP’s Pathway to College™, well over 100 college coaches  were in attendance from Division I, Division II, Division III, and Junior College programs. Coaches from the Big Ten, Big East, Ivy League, NESCAC, NJAC, and other conferences came to see elite  girls 15U-19U compete in some of the best soccer on the eastern seaboard.

 

EDP matched top tier teams as US Soccer Girls Development Academy, US Youth Soccer National League, and ECNL teams competed  in Super Group brackets, with players competing against some of the best teams in the country and showcasing their talents and skills to a wide range of potential colleges.

EDP spoke to several coaches following the first day of the EDP Cup Fall Showcase. Here is what they had to say:

 

“I think the girls played fantastic this weekend. They deserved to win all 3 games, no goals given up. I believe 7 goals scored. It feels really good to win. Great tournament. Great fields. Just fantastic all around.” Lee Bishop, Coach of FC Europa 04 Elite

 

“I think they built throughout the tournament, which was nice because we definitely played the hardest team last. It just worked out. We kept building momentum, and we ended up winning 5-0, which was just surprising looking at the matchup. We put our chances away and just worked through different things we coached and throughout the weekend they just kept capitalizing. It was great.” Diana Colleur, Coach of FC Ballyhoo 02 Black

 

“I think we could have played better. Overall, the quality of the tournament was really high. It was a challenging event for the girls to come and play. It’s our first games of the season and I’m pretty satisfied with where we're at. ” Todd Philips, Coach of Asphalt Green 2002

Please let us know about your tournament experience below.

“Yeah, I thought the team as a whole played well, considering it’s our first tournament together after the high school season. I want to see us continue to build fluidity and continue to work together as a group. But, overall the tournament was great and this was a great way to start the season.” Jamie Gonzalez, Coach of East Meadow 04 ECNL Barca

 

“I think our team performed very well. We’re a younger team. We’re playing up. We’re an 03 team primarily with a couple of 02s. So, we played up in the U18s and we ended up topping our group. So, overall I’m very pleased with how the girls performed. It was a good start to our outdoor season and looking forward to more EDP events.” Scott Burns, Coach of Rotterdam United 03 NL
