CHARLESTON, S.C. (June 9, 2015) – Five teams from four different clubs qualified for the 2015 NPL Finals after championship performances during the Mountain Developmental League (Boys) playoffs, June 6-7 at Pleasant View Soccer Complex in Boulder, Colo.
|U-13 boys:||FC Boulder (Colo.)|
|U-14 boys:||Real Colorado (Colo.)|
|U-15 boys:||SC del Sol (Ariz.)|
|U-16 boys:||Real Colorado (Colo.)|
|U-17 boys:||Rio Rapids SC (N.M.)|
|U-18 boys:||Colorado Storm (Colo.)*|
While the 2015 Mountain Developmental League (Boys) playoffs featured U-13 through U-17 teams, the U-18 boys division had already been decided through regular season results, as Colorado Storm clinched the title.
The 2015 postseason tournament marked back-to-back championships in the U-14 and U-16 divisions for Real Colorado (co-championships awarded due to inclement weather), as well as the U-17 age group for Rio Rapids SC. After splitting the 2014 title in the U-14 division, that SC del Sol team continued its dominance, as it claimed the 2015 championship in the U-15 bracket.
All of the winners have earned berths to the upcoming 2015 NPL Finals, to be held July 9-13 at Grand Park in Westfield, Ind. As the targeted destination for all NPLs throughout the country, the NPL Finals represents the culminating event of year-long, league-based competition.
