Thank You ! All For Supporting The 56ers In 2014
As the 2014 season came to an end we would like to say a big Thank You to all of our supporters. Also Thank You to Great Dane Brewery and La Empanada Food Cart for providing great beer and delicious food to all of our home games, to all of our sponsors who advertise in the game day program, to all the volunteers who spend hours during home games making sure everything is taken care of and to all the youth players from the Madison area who played half-time small sided games and were also ball kids during the NPSL games.
2014 Season Review
The end of the 2014 season came earlier than we were expecting as our goal was to win the Midwest Central Conference or at a minimum, qualify for the Midwest Playoffs by being the best 2nd place and extend the season by at least 1 more week. We finished 3rd and now is time to look back. Some good soccer was played during the season, we had times when we played very well during certain games such as the second half against St. Louis Bordo at Breese Stevens. We wish we offered our fans more of that throughout the season, but we were never able to play a whole game at high level. We got 6 points against Aris Eau Claire and 4 points from the matches against both St. Louis Bordo and Minnesota Twin Stars. Unfortunately, we only managed 1 point out of a possible 12 against the better teams in the conference: Quad City Eagles and Minnesota United Reserves.There were also 3 entertaining friendlies against Milwaukee Bavarians, Croatian Eagles and Portsmouth University FC. Over the next few weeks we will analyze the season in detail and do our best to make the right corrections so that 2015 will be a better year for us.
