As the regular season wraps up, the Jacksonville Armada FC U-23 squad prepares for a seat in the NPSL Sunshine Conference Playoffs.

"It’s exciting to be a part of the playoffs," said head coach Aaron Pitchkolan. "Having been involved with the Armada as a player, assistant and now head coach I always want to see the club succeed. I’m excited for the players to have an opportunity to showcase themselves in a winner-takes-all game against Miami FC — the reigning league champions.”

 The playoff position was secured after a thrilling 3-3 draw with Central Florida SC on Saturday. The team came back from trailing 3-1 in extra time, by netting two goals to tie it up in the final minutes of the match.
