2013 WASHINGTON CUP (April 2013)
BU11 NK Havoc Blows Through State Competition


BU11 NK Havoc played their hearts out and earned Runner Up Honors in the Puget Sound Premier League Washington Cup against teams from across the state.

Fighting their way through the bracket, including getting over the hurdle of a Friday evening game to advance, Havoc stayed focused. After Friday's Cup win Havoc was matched up against a powerful and experienced UNAM Pumas a Seattle team they played many times in Puget Sound Premier League and Tournament play.

North Kitsap Havoc was up for the challenge. UNAM Pumas scored first and Havoc answered. Both teams battled back and forth but the UNAM Pumas scored 2 more goals by half. Havoc re-grouped and worked hard as a team giving 100% to the team and each other. They had many scoring opportunities but was unable to score in the second half and lost 4-1 claiming Runner Up honors to a deserving champion. Havoc held their opponents the lowest scoring in the WA Cup Tournament.

C
oach Scott was proud,
"I want to give a BIG Thank You to NKSC and all its members and our parents for all the support Team Havoc has received this year. The boys feel it, so has the Coaches and parents. This is truly a special club and I am very proud to be a part of NKSC and a part of the players I get to teach the great game of soccer to. AWESOME JOB TEAM HAVOC and THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENT.

This is all very important and very positive signs towards progressing our team towards future successes. I am so proud of these boys. They have really worked hard improving steadily from the Summer Tournaments to Fall Season and now to the Spring League. That's what we need to do every year. There's a lot of good competition out there and I want Havoc to be able to compete with any team in WA state and within our region by the time they are 18 years old.  It's seems like a long ways away but I truly believe if we continue to work as a team and support each other and our club we will have a great future.
Great Season NK Havoc01 and thank you for all your hard work, it has really paid off!"

NKSC is impressed too!  GREAT JOB HAVOC!

NK Storm 94 Crashes PDL Opponents to Become Nike Crossfire Challenge Champs



NK Storm had another recent success at the BU18 Gold Division at the Nike Crossfire Challenge.   After losing 1-0 in the tournament opener to host Crossfire, Storm rallied to win the remaining round robin games against teams HPFC and PacNW.  The HPFC game was a nail biting 2-1 victory.  Storm dominated the PacNW team 3-0, showing more possession skill, better defense, and more dangerous attacking play.  Storm faced off against NW Nationals, winning 2-0 against a dangerous and fast counter-attacking team.  The final – a rematch between Storm and Crossfire – was a defensive duel with both teams using skillful possession to find weaknesses in the other.  There were many chances on both sides, but both defenses seemed to come up big when they needed to.  Storm showed great heart  – always seeming to find the play to keep Crossfire from scoring.  After two 5 min scoreless overtime periods, the teams squared off in PKs.  Storm missed their first chance, quickly going down 2-1 after the first four kicks were done.  The third Crossfire PKer missed over the top, followed by a score by Storm – 3-3 after 4 players each.  The final Storm player converted, and the Storm keeper came up with a HUGE block against Crossfire’s final taker to seal the win.  Very exciting!  NK Storm finished the tournament with fewest goals allowed and tied for most goals.  WELL DONE Guys!

2011 Summer Tournaments (August 2011)
NKSC Dominant at the Bainbridge Island Cup

What a great end of August weekend for NKSC Competitive teams while supporting our neighbors in their inaugural Bainbridge Island Cup.

NKSC teams went 5 for 5 on Championship day with BU11 NK Ballistic, GU11 NK Storm, BU12 NK Asteroids, BU13 NK Inferno, and BU14 NK Comets all taking home the gold.

Add to that GU14 NK Blast 97 just missing the finals by a single point and our PCA team playing in some close games (1-2, 1-2, 0-0), GU13 NK Chaos and our Recreational team BU13 NK Lightning also playing tough but unfortunately did not advance.

Overall, NKSC had a combined tournament record of 19W, 10L and 3T. Asteroids, Inferno & Comets all swept their divisions. Storm & Ballistic both avenged their only pool play losses by beating those same teams in the final.

An extraordinary weekend for all NKSC teams. WELL DONE!

Oops! Ballistic Did it Again



They did it again! In back to back tournaments, no less! BU-11 NK Ballistic 00 has one their second tournament championship brining home the gold at the Bainbridge Island Cup 2011. This is Ballistic's 2nd full field go around in their inaugural year with NKFC's Competitive program.

The first 2 wins in bracket play were a confidence booster. After a 7-1 loss to Storm King in game 3, Ballistic went home, regrouped and showed up ready to play in the finals, dealing Storm King a 2-0 loss that they didn't see coming.

Head Coach Rodney Green said, "Yesterday's loss against Storm King fired up the boys for today's match. They came to play and played with heart and perseverance. The 7-1 loss was not acceptable to them and they sent their message loud and clear with a shut out in the finals."

What a great way to finish the summer tournament season and roll right into the PSPL fall league season. WAY TO GO BALLISTIC!  Good luck in Fall league.

First Championship "Hardware" for GU11 NK Storm!



With steady improvement throughout only 3 months as a competitive team GU11 NK Storm '00 finished their summer tournament season on a high note as the 2011 Bainbridge Island Tournament Champions!

NK Storm was able to clinch a finals berth quickly with 2 wins in a row. Their third match against a physical Snohomish side ended in 0-2 loss with the rematch of the same 2 teams in the finals.

Coach Greg' St Peter's strategy was to come out hard against Snohomish hoping the team might be a little overconfident having just beat Storm. Storm came out quickly to 1-0 lead but then allowed a long, high shot by Snohomish to tie the game.

Storm stepped up their physical play and battled Snohomish even through overtime to send the match to shootouts to decide the Championship.

Kicks from the mark took 8 players to complete the win helped by outstanding goalie play by Maya Kraus who made 3 critical saves helping Storm avenge their earlier loss to Snohomish and to clinch the Championship!

Coach Greg remarked "This was ideal timing to win our first tournament. Our confidence is high and we're ready to start the fall season!".  GU11 will be playing in the Fall 2011 Puget Sound Premier League.

Congrats to Storm for their first "hardware", first Championship and a strong showing going into their season!

Dynamo Stomps the Competition at Bigfoot



BU16 NK Dynamo '95 may have been the small town underdog at the recent Snohomish Bigfoot Tournament, but after they knocked off the number one seed to make it to the finals, Dynamo felt like top dog.

Dynamo competed valiantly and strongly in the Finals against the Greater Renton team. With only a 1 1/2 hour break since the end of the semi-final Dynamo ultimately lost the final to GRFC 3-2 despite some very skilled play.

Coach, Dave Imperio, was very pleased with Dynamo's overall improvement of play and performance. The team has been working on a Brazilian style of play since summer camp, The players have taken it to heart and their hard work seemed to really make a difference in this tournament.

Dynamo is pumped and ready for action for this fall's PSPL league!  NICE JOB NK DYNAMO!

GU12 NK Intrepid on a Roll



By all accounts GU12 NK Intrepid is rolling along nicely during the summer tournament season. Only a few weeks after tallying their first finals showing at Federal Way the girls found themselves in a similar position at the South Mason Kickoff. 

Intrepid swept through bracket play on Friday and Saturday winning all 4 matches advancing them to the Finals on Sunday. There Intrepid met a rejuvenated South Kitsap team who they had previously beaten but found themselves down 0-3 with 15 mins left in the game. With renewed energy and determination Intrepid, lead by a hat trick by Maia Larsen, scored from a corner kick, another on a rebound and finally tied the score on a breakaway sending the finals match into overtime. South Kitsap scored the championship goal shortly into overtime.

HATS OFF to GU12 NK Intrepid for another fantastic showing! Congrats to all the girls for your hard work and to Maia for your hat trick!  NICE JOB LADIES!

GU12 NK Intrepid Breaks Through



GU12 NK Intrepid earned their first piece of "hardware" by placing GU12 Runner Up at Federal Way Blast Off.

Intrepid won 1-0 against the Federal Way Strikers to start the tournament.

The finals were a much different story then the first time the teams met. Coach Mike remarked, "the girls played really tough the whole game and despite a few important calls that did not go our way we had a great chance to win. Ultimately we came up a bit short 3-2. I am very proud of the girls for giving it their all. Both the girls and I truly believed we could have won."

WAY TO GO NK INTREPID 99! Keep up the great play - LOVE your new uniforms!

2011 Summer Camp (July 2011)
Little Norway Takes on Some Brazilian Flair



For the second time in recent years NKSC welcomed BFUT- Instituto Brasileiro de Futebol to Little Norway to conduct a 4 day, 32 total hour player and coach immersion into Brazilian football training techniques. BU15 & BU16 Coach Dave Imperio organized this outstanding training opportunity.

Coach Dave's BU15 NK Explosion 96 and BU16 NK Dynamo 95 along with players from GU13 NK Chaos 98 and a few others experienced intense conditioning, perspiration, motivation and inspiration with some dry wit thrown in.

"Educator” Thedeu Goncalves brought his Brazilian passion, compassion, discipline, and focus to our budding soccer stars. The players were amazed at how Thedeu emphasized the small but very important aspects of dribbling, passing and ball control, balance and rhythm. At camp end the players were exhausted but know now that the limits they face are of their own making.

In addition to player training Coaches Brazilian licensing training was also conducted to which 5 NKSC staff members are expected to certify once they complete and submit their final project.
 
On the final day of training, the players signed a framed group photo and presented it to Thedeu with many thanks and an invitation to return to Poulsbo in the future.  SUPER JOB NKSC!

2010 Tournaments (August 2010)
The "Moose" was Loose in Chilliwack, BC!




When the Chilliwack Soccer tournament brackets were published, NK Lady Norse found themselves misnamed to the Lady "Moose", much to the amusement of all. Although this was a source of jokes and endless needling throughout the tournament, the Canadians found Lady "Moose" soccer to be no laughing matter.

Despite being one year older and similarly bigger, the Canadian teams could not match Lady Norse's physical style and endurance, as the Norse went undefeated in the round robin play.

They met Yukon Strikers in the final, a team that traveled 1400 miles south from Whitehorse, Yukon Territories to attend the event. Lady Norse dispatched them in the final 5-1, winning their second tournament in two weeks and appearing in the finals in in 10 tournaments dating back 2 years.

Besides having fun on the pitch, North Kitsap families had a wonderful end of summer trip to the gorgeous Chilliwack/Cultus Lake region of British Columbia that they will long remember.

Federal Way Blast Off Launches GU13 NK Blast 97




GU13 NK Blast 97 went into the Federal Way Blast Off expecting some good competition. What they received was unexpected, a slot in upper competitive GU13 bracket!

Making the best of it Coach Cheryl Fogg challenged her team to compete. "They were placed in a bracket above where we wanted to be and unfortunately did not advance to the finals. But they really played well at times and there were a lot of small rewards in every game. I was really proud of them and you can be too as they always play very hard and represent NKSC well."

Blast went 0W-2L-1T but regardless, the team proved to themselves they can compete very well against tough opponents. This confidence will serve them well in the future.

Keep up the good work NK Blast 97!

Skelly, Prevost, Troka & Catania Create Quite a Stir in the NCAA

Four NKSC alumni Stephanie Skelly, Steve Prevost, John Troka and Bobby Catania created quite a stir for their respective college teams in 2009.

Skelly (NK Fuego United 88) was selected Northwest Conference (NWC) First Team All Star for the Willamette University (Salem, OR) Bearcats. She is a sophomore midfielder/striker who lead the Bearcats n scoring with 6 goals, 3 game winning on their way to a 3rd place conference finish.

Not to be outdone Prevost (NK Villa) was named NWAACC West Division Most Valuable Player and First Team All Star while playing for the West Regional League Champion Pirates of Peninsula College (Port Angeles, WA). Prevost, a sophomore central defender, finished with 1 goal and 4 assists and most importantly led a back line that gave up only 11 goals in conference play, including three shutouts.

His Pirate teammates Troka (6 goals, 8 assists) and Catania (3 goals 2 assists) represented NKSC and their club team NK Fusion quite well also contributing to Peninsula's success with a post season playoff run to the quarterfinals of the Championship tournament.
