Heading out to ECNL National Playoffs, Scorpions SC had high expectations for their U-17 team.
Drawn into the Showcase Cup, the third tier of postseason play in California, co-director Nick Rugnetta said the club was “disappointed” Scorpions didn’t place higher. Had a result or two gone their way, they would have finished better than .500 in Northeast Conference.
“They were the one seed and overall we felt they under-achieved in the regular season, so to get some salvation and say their season was a success, they needed to make a splash,” Rugnetta said. “They got the job done.”
