McLean U18 ECNL team players celebrate after scoring a goal at the highly competitive NCFC Girls Showcase. The squad went undefeated in three games.
Two teams coached by Total Futbol Executive Director Nadir Moumen swept their games at the prestigious 2017 North Carolina FC Youth (NCFC) Girls Showcase (formerly known as the CASL Girls Showcase) December 1-3 in Raleigh. McLean Youth Soccer’s U16 (born 2002) and U18 (born 1999) ECNL teams both went undefeated in top brackets of their respective age groups, conceding just one goal apiece in three games.
The NCFC Showcase event drew more than 440 teams from around the country and more than 600 college coaches, who use the event to evaluate and recruit future players.
McLean’s U16 ECNL team, coached by Moumen since September of 2017, competed in the U16 Elite Gold Group B bracket, scoring 17 goals and allowing one in three games against teams from Michigan, New Jersey and Florida.
