Wolverines return to Battle of the Hill Top - Limerick, PA

August 2018 Debuting their new kits and joined by new teammates and old friends, the Wolverines returned for their second year at Hilltop. On day one, their skills and creative play were one full display, beating Valley 3-0. It was a very different game two. Against Boyertown United, it was a physical battle and the Wolverines found themselves down 0-2 at half. They settled down and answered the challenge in the second half, just falling short with a 1-2 result. The boys finished the weekend out against Penn Fusion on Day 3. It was a weekend that tested their mettle, but the boys showed hear and grit working hard to the final whistle. Great work, Wolverines!

Congratulations to Nicholas Trigone for joining the Philadelphia Union!

June 2018 It is bittersweet as once again one of our boys starts the next phase of his soccer career. Nicholas Trigone has joined the Philadelphia Pre Academy. Nicholas has been part of the Methacton family since the boys started playing together in DDP.  With his shock of blonde hair, contagious grin, and wicked right strike, Nicholas will be dearly missed at Heebner this summer, and on gamedays this Fall.

We hope that Nicholas will always keep a place in his heart for MUSC, and look to get him back together with his teammates for some fun on the field whenever we can. For now, we wish him all the best for the 2018-2019 season. Congratulations, Nicholas! Keep up the great work and have fun!

Winter Futsal for the 2008 MUSC Boys

January 2018 - After fun Fall seasons in Central League, the boys started weekly futsal training for the first time under DOC, Coach Andy Wilkes. Traditionally meant to improve technical skills and encourage creative play, Coach Andy led fast and furious joint sessions for the 2008 boys. The training paid off for our Wolverines as they went 8-2 in UK Elite Futsal league in Lower Merion, finishing as finalists after losing a tough 2-1 match to GVCSA! Way to go boys!

 

Wolverines wrap up their season at (chilly!) 2017 HSC Welsh Cup - Haverford, PA

November 2017 - After a season in Central League Tier 1 that saw the boys go 7-2, our boys faced off against familiar foes Haverford Red Storm and LMSC Bobcats.  After a 4-2 win over Harleysville, things seemed to be going our way. Unfortunately, a late goal by Haverford denied the Wolverines the decision. Although they hung tough for most of the game, the result against LMSC was the same. However, that didn’t really dampen the boy’s spirits. They had played well on a challenging day! Everyone braved the cold to watch the boys give Coach Steve a truly touching keepsake for the season, and (making it even “sweeter”) celebrate Giovanni’s birthday. What a season to remember!

Wolverines are Finalists at 2017 YMS Columbus Day Cup - Yardley, PA

October 2017 - Sporting their pink jerseys for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Wolverines had a fun-filled Columbus Day Weekend! A mist covered pitch awaited the boys for their early morning start against Penn Athletics. They took shots early and often, besting the Patriots (3-0). 

After grabbing lunch and hamming it up for the camera, it was back to work. In a GREAT matchup versus YMS Gray, the boys won another one, 2-1. 

Heading into Day 2, confidence was riding high—and the Wolverines needed every bit of it to get by Solebury (2-1), to set up the final with Buckingham United Blue. It was a tough game that saw some wild goals, but our boys never gave up, narrowing the lead to 5-3. But in the end, BU came away with the championship. Exhausted, but proud of their play for the weekend, the Wolverines earned their Finalist trophies. Great work, boys!

Gabriel Serra Accepted to the Philadelphia Union Academy!

June 2017 - This Fall, the U10 boys will be missing a familiar face at Heebner Park. Having been with our MUSC family in the DDP program under Coach Andy Wilkes, Gabriel Serra is starting a new and exciting phase of his soccer career as a member of the Union Pre-Academy. This new program is made up of players from around the region, and helps identify those for the Union Academy starting at U12.

We are extremely proud of Gabriel, and all he has accomplished. There is no doubt, though, that the Wolverines will miss his skill and love of the game. We hope that wherever soccer takes Gabe, he will remember us here at MUSC. And you never know when we may see him again….we’d love to have him come back and play at a tournament or in the off season. Please join us in congratulating Gabe and wishing him all the best for the 2017-2018 season!

WCSC U10 Finalists

U10 Boys MUSC Wolverines reach finals at West Chester Summer Classic

August 6, 2017 - The MUSC U10 Boys MUSC Wolverines had a very strong showing at their first tournament of the season, reaching the finals. Time and time again our boys lifted each other up over the weekend when they were down, including getting level from an 0-2 deficit during the final to the Towemencin Thunder. In a heartbreaker, the Thunder earned the victory and championship on PKs. But that didn’t change the fact that it was a great weekend of courage, character, and fun for the team.  Outstanding work boys!

2008 Boys Begin their Second Year of Travel Soccer

March 2017 - As the 2008 age group enters their second year of travel soccer, it is an exciting time. We expect the core of our age group to consist of players coming from our Director’s Development Program, a progressive curriculum led by our Director of Coaching, Andy Wilkes. Under Andy’s guidance development of individual skills, confidence, and a love of the game are emphasized over winning. Starting at an early age, players are able to gain a unique understanding of the game through equal playing time and at every position. 

November 2016 It was

November 2016 - It was a chilly and blustery Fall afternoon in Radnor, as the Wolverines wound down their season in Central League Tier 1. Our boys came from behind to earn a 3-3 tie against the Samba in a game that was a blast to watch! After having gone 7-3-8 for their first travel season in mixed divisional play in Central League, it was bittersweet to have things coming to an end. Coupled with tournament play, it was a fun and busy season with Tier 1 providing challenge, and Tier 3 fostering development. But there’s always Winter Academy with Coach Andy to look forward to after the break!

Al Perlini Memorial Tournament Winners

September 3, 2016 - Let’s hear it for our 2008 boys, going undefeated and winning their division at this year’s Al Perlini Memorial Tournament! Our boys started the morning strong with gutsy victories over Delaware Union (5-4) and CHYSC (4-3). During a well deserved break the boys showed off their patches, shared some laughes, and dodged bees (Yikes!). It was back to the pitch with a tighter defense and a red hot offense in the afternoon, with a 6-2 win over PA Rush. That left the final matchup against Boyertown SC Union. With the score knotted at the half 2-2, fantastic play from our keeper held the Union in check, as MUSC put it away with a 5-2 victory! This was a great way for the kids to cap off a fun tournament season, before kicking off their first travel season. Great work, boys!
