Comets and Dynamo show MYSA Strengthtagbo | January 25, 2013
The Mebane Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) U12 Boys Comets and Dynamo had exceptional NC Youth Soccer (NCYSA) 2nd Division Classic Fall 2012 Seasons. The Comets and Dynamo finished first and second respectively in a very competitive division with teams from Knightdale, Chapel Hill, Johnston County, Fuquay-Varina, and Roanoke Rapids.
The Comets ran away with first place finishing 11-0-1 with 34 points. They scored 53 goals and only gave up 18. The Dynamo finished 7-2-3 with 24 points, scoring 47 goals, but giving up 23. In their lone head to head match up on a very cold early November night, the Comets prevailed 3-2.
The Comets and Dynamo also did well in tournaments. Both teams attended the Burlington Soccer Club Shootout over the Columbus Day weekend. The Comets won their group while the Dynamo finished second in theirs. The teams combined forces to show well at three other tournaments, winning the Triangle United Soccer Classic at Chapel Hill in August and showing well at events put on by Greensboro United Soccer in August and the Capitol Area Soccer League in November.
Stand out players for the Comets include: Macoy Wood, Luke Burnette, Ozvaldo Lopez, Jordi Trejo, Julio Garcia-Lopez, Jay Castillo, Macon Pickard, Kevin Rios, Elliott Hester, and Jack Morgans.
Stand out players for the Dynamo include: Cameron Michalski, Jayden Velez, Macon Lawrence, Nate Lliteras, Alex Burke, Luke Hawks, Jalen Dikes, Alex Kreider, Isaiah Locklear, Ewan McCallum, Jon Buck, and RJ Pherribo.
The NCYSA Classic brackets have been shuffled, but the Comets and the Dynamo find themselves once again together and in a very competitive group. The future bodes well for both teams who plan to combine forces in tournaments this spring and eventually form one or possibly two very good U13 teams next fall. Look for more news on these teams in the coming months.
