Cup Season Came to a Halt

COVID-19 Ends Cups for State & Region

We did get three of our cups played. (1 June) We held hope for as long as we could but government authorities kept everything shut down, including fields, that forced us to end the cup competitions prematurely. We were able to complete the Rowland & Stewart Cups with Christos FC lifting both trophies. All Stars United had earlier won the Morton Cup. We were ready to kick off the Maryland Over-30 Cup followed by the Over-40 competition but that is when we got orders to shut down. So it was an incomplete season. Worst, our leagues were never able to launch their spring season. Let's all hope for a better fall.
