Fall 2021 Season Wrap-Up

Total Futbol had a great fall this year on both the Maryland and Virginia sides. Many Maryland players participated in high school soccer winning individual and team honors as well as playing with their respective travel teams. Total Futbol launched the inaugural season for DMV FC, a new club based out of Reston, VA, with a number of their teams finishing well in tournaments and their EDP brackets. The fall is capped off by two DMV FC girls teams bringing home the VA State Cup Championship with another girls team still in contention.

With such a stellar season, we are looking forward to continuing our team’s successes through the winter and spring!

Individual Highlights

  • Ella Valente (DMV FC 04G Crush) committed to Virginia Tech. She’s a forward graduating in 2022 who will head down to Blacksburg next fall.
  • High school soccer awards:
    • Delena Bucaj (DMV FC 04 Crush) with Bishop O’Connell faced teammate Kylie Fischer (DMV FC 04 Crush) of Potomac to win the ISL State Championship. Delena was a captain for the 2021 season and received All-Met Honorable Mention recognition.
