The Tennessee Soccer Club (TSC) 2003 Boys ECNL team has advanced to the National Semifinals of the Elite National Premier League (ENPL) playoffs. The ENPL provides an environment that is one of the highest levels of youth soccer in the country.
TSC earned their trip to the National Playoffs’ group stage in Boston through a stellar regular season performance where they finished in first place in their league.
After finishing in first place in their group in the first phase of the tournament, TSC advanced to the quarterfinal and won in a thrilling overtime match. Now they will travel to Denver for their semifinal match on July 13, with the Championship match taking place July 14.
“I’m very proud of this group of guys for advancing this far in the ENPL playoffs,” said TSC Executive Director and 2003 Boys ECNL Coach Stuart Brown. “They work extremely hard and deserve to be in Denver competing for a National Championship.”
TSC has had a team win a National Championship in each of the last two seasons (2016 and 2017). The 2003 Boys are hoping to bring the club their third in three years!
