Congratulations to Vienna Thunder Black for reaching the State Cup Final 4 this past weekend. The team advanced to the semifinals of the Virginia state championship after defeating Loudoun Red 2-1 on a dramatic last-minute goal after a tightly contested game.
Vienna reached the quarterfinal stage by beating Beach FC Red 2-0 in the first round and BRYC elite Blue 3-1 in the Sweet 16. Thunder Black opened the scoring in the middle of the first half and scored again on a goal that the referee ruled against. Loudoun was able to tie the game and the match seemed sure to go to overtime until Vienna scored with only a minute left on the clock. The girls were able to hold off all of the remaining attacks until the final whistle to come out on top. The team will play PWSI Red in the semifinal round.
The Final 4 round will be held in Richmond, Virginia at Ukrop Park on Saturday, May 18 with the winners advancing to the State Championship on May 19. Best of luck to the team!
