U17 Boys Fever
Coach: Paul Kowalewski
The Severna Park Fever completed its first season in the Region 1 Premier league, finishing tied for third place with a 3-2-2 record. The Fever’s last game was this past Saturday at Kinder Park on the Upper Bermuda field. The fever played Kirkwood Soccer Academy United, from Delaware, who are ranked #11 in the US. The Fever pulled out a hard fought 1-0 victory in the game. Fever’s third place finish automatically qualifies them for Region 1 Premier league play next Spring.
The Fever, having won the 2013 U16 and 2014 U17 State Cup, are now two time State Cup champions. Highlights from the U17 final are captured in the video below.
Background on Region I Premier: The Region I Premier League is for the top sixteen teams throughout the Region (Virginia to Maine) in the age group, and consists mainly of state Cup winners and runners up in the Region. The competition is designed to allow the very best teams in Region I to play each other in a league format. With only sixteen positions available in any age group throughout the Region, entry into the league is competitive. There is a promotion/relegation system to assure that the best 16 teams are selected for the league.
