The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association State Cup and Arch Cup are nearing their finales and LIJSL clubs are firmly in the thick of possibly lifting silverware in those competitions.
A total of 58 LIJSL member club teams, which could rise to 59 depending on results, will be in action this weekend in the semifinal round of the cups. At least one LIJSL team will compete in 30 of the 31 flight semifinals across the two competitions.
In the semifinals, 30 separate member clubs will be represented. Massapequa has six teams, with a chance for a seventh, while Lake Grove and Stony Brook have five apiece.
The State Cup and Arch Cup Finals will be played on the weekend of June 1-2.
The LIJSL would like to wish good luck to all the competing teams this weekend.
