Sandy, UT (5/17/2017)
Day 2 of the 2017 Spring State Cup was another beautiful night out at the Regional Athletic Complex. While the forecast and skyline threatened with rain and wind, outside of a few sprinkles the weather could not have been nicer. Good weather always makes tournaments better, although the action on the pitch was great enough to do that on its own. Another 49 games were held throughout the day on all 18 fields. The day's action was so good no one wanted it to end, it was as if somebody pushed the Buffalo Wild Wings overtime button as the lights didn't come back on later in the day, but as always we got that game played and it was fantastic. State Cup never disappoints. If you were unable to attend or if you just want to relive it all again check out our daily recap below.
A team on everybody's radar, 00 Celtic FC Premier, started their tournament off with a bang taking down Blue Knights 00 (PG) 5-1.
Two of the top teams in the age bracket, La Roca PO and Sparta 02 Premier KL continued their march to a fantastic championship game as both teams won by scorelines of 4-1 and 6-0 respectively, putting both teams on 6 points with one game remaining.
Soccer is a wonderful sport full of unexpected developments and changes. After scoring 8 goals on Day 1 Arsenal CY 03 was shut out as they suffered defeat to 03 Celtic FC Premier 1-0.

The highest scoring team of the day was La Roca S CS as they scored 9 in their victory over Impact SJ.
