Every team at ECNL South Carolina will be playing significant and meaningful games – meaning every contest will be worth watching. But there is added intrigue surrounding a few teams as they head into the showcase. One of those teams is WNY Flash’s U13 squad, who currently sits in second place in their division within the Midwest Conference with a 5-1-1 record. WNY Flash has continually seen its teams improve year over year, and in 2020-21, is one of the top teams in its division, ready to be tested against others across the country. At ECNL South Carolina, WNY Flash will battle Pipeline SC (9-1-2) on Friday before taking on Charlotte SA National (13-5-0) on Saturday and VDA (12-2-1) on Sunday, providing an amazing challenge for the boys from Buffalo. 

At the U14 age group, a team that will face tough competition is Albertson SUSA, which has a perfect 11-0-0 record. Albertson begins the showcase against VDA (11-2-1) Friday, then faces United Football Academy (13-5-0) Saturday and Charlotte SA National (8-2-7) Sunday. Already in a conference with a high level of play, Albertson SUSA will use ECNL South Carolina as a barometer to see how it stacks up against the other top teams in the country.
