Baltimore Bays Ranked #1 by Soccer America for 4th Straight Year!

For a record fourth year in a row, the Baltimore Bays remain the No. 1 team in Soccer America’s ranking, launched in 2003, of the nation’s best boys clubs. The Bays beat out three MLS clubs -- FC Dallas, the New York Red Bulls and Chicago Fire -- in this year’s rankings.

The Bays won their record ninth U.S. Youth Soccer boys title when their Bays Chelsea team beat the Chicago Fire Juniors, 2-0, to claim the 76th McGuire Cup championship at the 2011 National Championships.

The Bays U-19s finished their run as three-time national champions, having also won titles as U-14s and U-15s.

More impressive, the Bays have won at least one USYS national title in each of the last six years.

The Bays Chelsea also finished fifth in the Development Academy’s U-17/18 age group when Michael Gamble scored four second-half goals in the 4-1 win over the New York Red Bulls in their placement game.
