Ventura, CA (July 9, 2023) – MesoAmerica FC won the 2023 USASA (United States Adult Soccer Association) Region IV Amateur Cup at Ventura College on Friday night, July 7 with a 2-0 shutout over Napa Valley 1839 FC.
German Alfaro scored goals in the 5th and 40th minute to secure the victory for MesoAmerica, who previously won the 2023 Cal South Adult State Cup earlier this year.
Cal South chair Nick Webster had the opportunity to hand the championship trophy to MesoAmerica on Friday night:
“It is a real thrill to see MesoAmerica reach the USASA National Amateur Cup Final. Having coached Cal FC to historic wins in the U.S. Open Cup, I can identify with all involved and fully understand the labor of love and strong effort required to make it to the top of this sport. Cal South will continue to do everything we can to support adult soccer in Southern California.”
MesoAmerica now moves on to the USASA National Amateur Cup Finals round in early August against the other three regional champions, which include Region I champion Newtown Pride FC, Region III champion Tobacco Road FC, and a yet-to-be decided Region II champion.
The USASA National Amateur Cup Finals are scheduled to be held at the TBK Bank Complex in Bettendorf, Iowa from August 5-6, 2023. The four teams competing for a USASA national title are also vying for a spot in the 2024 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup competition.
