Playoff Details
For St. Louis Scott Gallagher, sending four teams to the Champions League Tournament is a first time event. By that I mean the first time reaching the Champions League, and the Club is sending not one but four teams. I went out to practice this morning to catch the U17’s (2000) who are one of eight seeded teams, having won their Conference title with an undefeated record (13-0-3), a remarkable accomplishment. They are pictured above and a small gallery link below.

Two additional teams qualified directly for the Champions League. The U18’s (1999) finished 10-4-2 in the Conference, one of two teams (with the Michigan Hawks) to qualify directly. For the U16’s (2001), a 9-4-3 record earned them the third spot in the Midwest Conference and a berth in the Champions League. They are pictured below along with a link to a small gallery.
The U15 (2002) girls finished 10-3-3 and in the fourth position in the Conference, earning a Wild Card spot to the Champions League tournament.
