PYAA started the season as the 12 rated team in South Jersey. The National Division is for teams rated 6-12. The Red Devils were 7-1-1 going into the final weekend. The biggest wins were a 2-0 victory on the road at Cinnaminson, (who handed PYAA their only defeat of the season, a 1-0 loss at home in week 3) and 2 wins over West Deptford, who had beaten PYAA 3 straight times over the last 2 seasons.

The Red Devils only gave up 3 goals all season, 1 to Cinnaminson and 2 at Cherry Hill in a come from behind 2-2 tie.

The Red Devils will play in the West Deptford Thanksgiving Weekend Tournament, and then play in the 12U Grand Championship at TBAA on Sat., Dec. 4 and Sun., Dec. 5. This tournament consists of the top 3 teams in the Olympic Division, top 2 in the National and top team from the American.
