FC STING 96 WINS Disney ESPN U17 Girls Showcase!

FC Sting 96 dominated the Disney ESPN Girls Showcase scoring 7 Goals in 4 Games while allowing 0 Goals Against on their way to becoming the 2014 Champions.  The possession passing style played by Ninety-Sixes was simply too much for the competition and the girls kept possession for most of each game they played.  Jenny Kronish, GK, recorded 4 shutouts and played the ball brilliantly as a Sweeper Keeper, allowing the Defense to relieve any pressure against it by pressing forwards.  Game 1 against Arizona's Champion showcased FC Sting's dominant passing style and, though only 1 goal was scored (Sarah Collins), The Sting girls hit the crossbar 4 times and the post once during chance after chance.  Arizona's GK played excellent, as well, but the game was never in doubt.  Game 2 featured a Minnesota team determined to repeat a Disney Championship from prior years. The much bigger team slammed against the Sting girls who refused to bend and who truly believed they were unstoppable - and they were.  Despite 5 yellow cards against the Minnesota team (and two against Sting) in what was a violent, brutal game, the Minnesota girls couldn't keep up with the passing and possession of the Ninety-Six's.  Kristin Reilly headed in a Christina Benincasa corner in the first 5 minutes.  Christina then buried a left footed shot on a breakaway near the end of the first half.  Grace Orr slammed a 30-yard bomb off the crossbar and into the goal for the third goal at the start of the second half, and that finished off the game 3-0.  Game 3 was played in a Florida monsoon Thunderstorm.  Despite the heavy rain, The Ninety-Six Girls moved the ball around the field and around their Florida Select opponent for over 70% of the game.  Kristin Reilly buried two goals from 25 yards out into the upper corner quickly ending the game and the Sting girls kept the ball for the rest of the time, slowly exhausting their opposite numbers.  

For the CHAMPIONSHIPPDA Shock was the opponent.  

The Sting girls came out single minded with a defensive fury, pressing PDA every time they had possession.  After winning the ball back and restarting the possession offense, it became clear that the Ninety-Six's were going to complete their mission.  PDA was forced to chase the quick passing and incredible off the ball movement and work ethic of the Sting girls - and finally Kristin Reilly - the clear MVP of the Tournament - buried a breakaway in the 42nd minute for her first of the game and 4th goal of the Tournament.  Jenny Kronish, GK, made an excellent tip over the crossbar ending PDA's only chance in the second half.  While the Sting girls missed a couple more chances in the second half, their defense was tenacious and one goal was enough - completing a four game shutout defensive effort by the entire team - and earning them the Championship.


CONGRATULATIONS!  To a TEAM - a group of amazing girls who believed in themselves and each other and made us all proud!

FC STING - Where Passion and Excellence collide with amazing results!
NR STING Battles in NPL - National Premier League (north rockland sting)





The NPL provides a unified, league-based national developmental platform with the highest level of competition in its geographic areas.

Created to elevate and change the competitive youth soccer landscape based upon US Club Soccer’s fundamental principles, the NPL extends developmental principals espoused by the U.S. Soccer Development Academy into younger age groups and additional clubs, providing a platform for long-term player development. 

More specifically, the NPL provides a platform:
  • focused on long-term player development;
  • for the country’s top soccer clubs, allowing consistent, meaningful high-level games appropriately scheduled with higher training-to-game ratios;
  • that allows players to be scouted and evaluated by U.S. Soccer National Staff and Technical Advisors;
  • that is designed and structured by the clubs, based on the needs of the clubs; and 
  • that provides an avenue for qualification for the NPL Champions Cup.


The NPL is an important component of US Club Soccer’s 10-year vision to refine the landscape for competitive youth soccer. This vision recognizes that:
  • Properly-structured youth soccer clubs are the vehicle through which player development does and must occur in the United States.
  • Clubs should play in leagues that provide meaningful games, allow establishment of the proper training-to-game ratio, and eliminate calendar congestion.
  • NPLs, as well as the best clubs, should be integrated in US Club Soccer’s id2 National Identification and Development Program, include Player Development Programs (PDPs) in select local markets, and work closely with U.S. Soccer staff regarding player identification, and player and coach development.


The culminating event each year is the NPL Champions Cup, where national championships are awarded. The NPL Champions Cup features qualifiers from every NPL across the country in a true “champions league” competition.
The NPL Competition Committee, which includes one representative from every NPL, makes recommendations regarding the NPL Champions Cup qualification process for each NPL based on each league’s relative size and strength. These recommendations include: 1.) direct berths in the NPL Champions Cup; 2.) play-in berths in the NPL Champions Cup, and 3.) placement of NPL finalists in US Club Soccer’s National Cup.

This annual evaluation process will allow continued growth of NPLs across the country while maintaining competitive balance within every league and in the NPL Champions Cup.

WESTCHESTER FC STING will manage your daughter’s soccer career on a steady path from early development through completion at the highest level they can aspire to reach.  No other coaches are as committed and dedicated to your daughter’s goals, and your daughters teams’ success.  If your daughter is passionate about soccer and life, WESTCHESTER FC STING is where she belongs.  We grow Passion into Success.
