MUTINY U16 BOYS WIN STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
Oct 02, 2017  

New England Mutiny FC Boys U16s claim title to the "Best U16 Boys Team in Massachusetts". The team coached by Jason Blackburn recently completed their State Cup run as Champions.

The boys went undefeated in their Round Robin matches and then returned to Citizen Bank fields in Lancaster, MA. on June 4th & 5th to complete their State Tournament run.
They came out fast and determined from the first whistle of the Semi-Final match and finished with a 4-0 victory which earned them a spot in the State Final the following day.

Final Match started much like the Semi's as Mutiny FC played strong and had multiple opportunities up front which resulted in a 1-0 lead at halftime.  Mike Tuck found the back of the net off a thru ball from Camden Blackburn.  Then came the second half and some more great soccer, only this half was being dictated by NOVA FC.  
NOVA came out blazing and not ready to go down.  Possession was equal but NOVA got on the scoring sheet twice with two beautiful half-volley strikes from 20 yards out. This put them ahead with 10 minutes to go and a hill to climb for Mutiny.  As time was nearing the end, Mutiny began a counterattack with a long diagonal ball to Jeff Marceau sent by Mike Tuck. This quickly developed into a strong run with the ball down the left side by Jeff.  With a touch of his right and a cross with his left Jeff whipped the ball across the goal mouth and with 20 seconds left in regulation Niko Baltazar crushed it into the back of the net with his right foot. OVERTIME!!

From that point it was all Mutiny as they controlled overtime from the start and quickly jumped out to a 3-2 lead from a terrific header by Cole Moutinho off a corner kick from Jeff Marceau.  Once again Mutiny struck the back of the net off a strong run from Striker Mike Tuck.  With the game coming to an end and the boys holding a 4-2 lead excitement was beginning to show. As the final whistle blew the boys began to celebrate what was an incredible championship run.

With the victory the team was awarded the Steve Koerper Cup Trophy as Massachusetts State Champions. 
Striker Mike Tuck was awarded Tournament MVP with his strong play up front which resulted in a tournament leading 11 goals in 5 games by him.
