Coming into the 2016 Delco Season and moving up a division from previous years introduced a new challenge for a new team learning to gel together with 6 returning players and 8 new players to the team from the previous year. However it didn’t take long to realize this team could and can be very special.
After going 8-0 during the regular season, which had some tough games along the way with Methacton, Nether United, Lower Mac, and Rose Tree featured on the schedule, we went into the playoffs undefeated and as the top seed looking to finish the season strong. After winning 1-0 versus a tough Lower Mac team at home in the semis we advanced to the finals. In the finals we played Methacton in what turned out to be probably our best overall game of the year; in frigid weather and difficult field conditions but capped off with a big 3-1 win in the finals to go undefeated for the season.
Not sure what was more amazing, the 40 goals scored for the season or only allowing 6 goals against, but probably a little bit of both!! Congratulations 06’ Arsenal Boys.
