2018 CCL PRO23 Champions

An exciting and eventful regular season of CCL PRO23 lead into climactic semifinal and championship matches played between the leagues best teams. Roanoke Star and Richmond Strikers were crowned the Men and Women’s 2018 CCL PRO23 Champions respectively, after winning their final matches at Greenwood Park in Glen Allen, Virginia.

CCL CCLPRO23 Women’s Final:  Richmond Strikers 2 vs. Maryland United 0

CCL CCLPRO23 Men’s Final:  Roanoke 1 vs. Fredericksburg FC 0

Richmond Strikers proved to be the dominant side in the Women’s match, scoring an early goal, and then tallying their second in the 65th off a great service from a wide area. Maryland United was very organized defensively, and made it difficult for Strikers to break them down, but a few lapses lead to goals. Roanoke held a one-goal lead for the majority of the Men’s match, scoring off an incredible diving header late in the first half. Fredericksburg made a valiant effort to get numbers forward and push for an equalizer, but Roanoke stayed committed defensively, and was able to manage the game with some great spells of possession.
