While the Sayreville Father’s Day Recreation Tournament was affected by the rainy weather that weekend, one team from Edison was definitely not bothered. The U11/U12 Edison Fireballs went on to capture 1st place in the shortened tournament.
This All-Star team is comprised of 16 girls from 7 different recreation teams from Edison United Soccer’s RL4G and RL5G divisions. During the try-outs, the coaches knew that this would be a special team. With only a few practices together, the team gelled quickly. In the tournament, they played great and looked like they had been together for many seasons. Everyone contributed and they all deserve credit for their success.
Please join us in congratulating the team!
