SWVA Elite U14 Girls are leading in the Skyline League

Game recap:

The SWVA Elite U14 Girls played at SVU in Harrisonburg on Sunday, September 22nd. In the first half, the girls defended well and earned some chances on goal against the run of play, and in the 20th minute Taylor Spence slotted home a 20-yard shot just inside the far post to give the girls a 1-0 halftime advantage. In the second half, the girls continued to defend well and maintained a possession edge, and midway through the half Morgan Mullens scored from just outside the box to put the team up 2-0. The girls held strong from that point on, generating more chances but not converting, and finished with a 2-0 win. Eliza Stowe made some good saves to post the shutout in goal, and the defensive back line consisting of Blake Carroll, Kaitlyn Heinze, Leigh Kadlec, Erin Straley, Megan Talarek and Christina Tarasidis played well together and keep SVU’s athletic attackers from generating many chances. The girls are now atop the Skyline U14 Girls table with three wins in three matches. Keep up the great work, ladies!


The SWVA Elite U14 Girls team is playing under the NRU umbrella. It is comprised of 22 players from Christiansburg Soccer Club, New River United and Radford Soccer Club, and is coached by Erin Lycan, VT women’s assistant coach, and assisted by B.J. Flack (NRU) and Jason Mahugh (CSC).

Information on fall registration

For fall, we have moved to a new registration site which will permit us to provide more targeted messages to teams and age groups, and to provide better support services for teams.  In order to work out the kinks to this program, we have selected 4 teams to register early and are asking that parents register their players now:

-U9 boys academy,

-U10 boys academy,

-U10 girls academy,

-U11 boys Hornets travel team.

Please click here to get started.

Once we have confirmed that the registration system is ready, we will open it up for all players.

We hope to have registration open for all players by the weekend.
