How they got to Nationals

Century V Gold (PA-W) came close to qualifying for Nationals in each of the last two National League seasons. The PA West side went undefeated in the league in 2017-18, but picked up just two wins to go along with five ties. After winning the PA West State Cup, Century V advanced to the semifinals of the Eastern Regional Championships by outscoring opponents, 11-to-3, to win Group A. By earning a 4-2 win in the semifinals, Century V earned a matchup in the final with Princeton SA (NJ), which had already qualified for Nationals through the National League. Despite having a place in Frisco guaranteed, Century V gained the extra momentum of heading to Nationals as the Eastern Regional Champion after defeating Princeton, 1-0, in the final.

How they got to Nationals

With several players returning from the CUP side that won the National Championship last year, CDA Premier 00 (OH-S) won the Midwest Regional Championship to earn a chance to defend its title.

CDA built a two-goal lead in its semifinal match and held on for a 2-1 win to advance to the final, where it met National League Blue Division winner Campton United (IL). CDA scored once in each half to win, 2-0, and move on to Frisco as Midwest Regional Champions.

How they got to Nationals

After a couple of close matches to start its week at the Southern Regional Championships, Sunrise Sting 2000 (FL) turned it on and finished with four straight dominant performances to win the title. The Florida side began its tournament with a 1-0 win and a 1-1 draw before earning a 3-0 win to finish first in Group B. A 2-0 quarterfinal win and a 4-0 semifinal triumph sent Sunrise to the final, where it built a commanding lead late in the opening half and cruised to a 4-0 victory over Mandeville SC Lakers Elite (LA). The win allowed Sunrise to punch its ticket to Nationals as the Southern Regional Champion after coming up short in the regional final a year earlier.

How they got to Nationals

After outscoring opponents, 15-to-0, to win Group B at the Far West Regional Championships, CDA Slammers FC HB 00 Elite (CA-S) needed some pressure-filled performances to win the title in Hawaii. It took penalties for Slammers to advance past National League winner Scottsdale Blackhawks Taylor (AZ) in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals, the Cal South side fell behind by two goals before Lily Slater scored twice — in the final minute and stoppage time — to send the game to overtime, where she completed a hat trick to give her side a place in the final. In the championship game against Greater Seattle Surf 00A (WA), Slammers once again needed penalties to claim the regional title and punch a ticket to the National Championships.

Campton United
 

 

How they got to Nationals

With a couple of strong showings in the previous National League seasons, Campton United (IL) took the next step in the 2017-18 campaign and won the Black Division with a perfect 7-0-0 record. The Illinois side leaned on its strong defense throughout the season, as it conceded just one goal while earning six shutouts. Campton followed up its National League performance by winning the Illinois State Cup and making a run to the Midwest Regional Championships final, so the team should be well prepared when it arrives in Texas.

How they got to Nationals

Princeton SA (NJ) came up one game short of qualifying for the 2017 National Championships, but it took care of business early this season — winning the National League Blue Division to earn a berth to Nationals. The New Jersey side dropped its first game of the National League season but bounced back to win its remaining three games in North Carolina. It kept that momentum going in January, as it went to IMG Academy and strung together three more victories to move to 18 points in the standings. A 2-1 win earlier in the season against Legends FC South (CA-S) proved to be the difference for Princeton, which took the title thanks to the head-to-head win against the Cal South side.

How they got to Nationals

For the second straight season, Scottsdale Blackhawks Taylor (AZ) is heading to Nationals after winning the National League Red Division title. The Arizona side found the road to be a little tougher in 2017-18 after it went a perfect 7-0-0 in the previous season. Scottsdale began this season in North Carolina with a loss, win and draw before adding another key three points to wrap up the opening weekend of play. A win and a tie to begin its final weekend in Las Vegas set up a must-win season finale, as Scottsdale needed a victory to take the division title. The Blackhawks took advantage of their opportunity and secured a 4-0 victory to wrap up their season with 14 points — enough to finish on top of the Red Division.

How they got to Nationals

Legends FC South (CA-S) is heading to Frisco as a National League representative after it went 6-1-0 and narrowly missed out on winning the Blue Division. A Far West Regional Championships finalist in 2017, Legends FC began its National League season with two wins before a narrow 2-1 defeat to Princeton SA (NJ). The Cal South side rebounded and reeled off four straight wins to finish the season with 18 points — the same as Princeton. In June, Legends FC traveled to Hawaii and finished a semifinalist at the Far West Regional Championships, so it will look to improve on that performance when it heads to Frisco for Nationals.
