Congratulations Champs! What a great way to start the season by Edison United PSG U14 boys! They are the winners of the 37th Piscataway Fall Classic 2017 Tournament. Congratulations to all the players, Coach Alex and Sourish for making it happen!
There were 5 teams in the group. Saturday, in the opener, PSG faced a very well trained Metuchen Travel SC Dragons team. It was a tough fight with a scoreless first half. While PSG defense kept the attacks under control, offense began to attack more often creating more opportunities. Finally, they converted a great coordinated strike and went on to win the game 1-0.
The second game was against the favorites Franklin Township Warriors. PSG defense could not keep up with the fast paced offense of the Warriors and conceded 2 goals in the first half. A goal was set during half-time – score 3 goals and win! Team played a great game in the second half. Defense did great by stopping the Warrior attack by well-planned man-marking. Offense came together to score two goals and tie the game 2-2.
On Sunday, PSG had to win both their games to clinch the title as Franklin Warriors tied their game against Metuchen Dragons. In the third game, PSG faced the Middlesex YSA Diamonds team. Though there were many missed opportunities by offense, PSG managed to convert a couple of coordinated attacks and win the game 2-0.
In the fourth and final game, PSG faced Piscataway SC Juventus team. It was a slow start for PSG and Juventus quickly scored a goal. Score 0-1. That was a shot in the arm for PSG team, who were determined to win the title. Team came together in all areas – did not allow Juventus offense to make any dangerous moves near the penalty area and scored 2 quick goals to take the lead 2-1. Juventus could not score in the second half, while PSG went on to score two more goals to win the game 4-1!
That did it! A great display of teamwork and focus! Way to go! Keep up the great work boys!!

Congratulations to our U12G EDP Real Blast in finishing 2nd in the U12 Girls Platinum Division at the 2017 East Brunswick Labor Day Tournament.
Real Blast played some extremely good competition on both days of the tournament. Previous games with three of the teams were decided by one goal. In the opening game, Real Blast played top seeded East Brunswick Crush. Despite a late second half pentaly kick awarded to East Brunswick, Real Blast maintained their composure and scored with six mintues remaining to end the game tied 1-1.
Real Blast beat NJ Crush 3-1 in its second game. On Sunday, the first game with Hazlet HotShots was an exciting game and a true nail biter for all fans. Real Blast scored off of a corner kcik with ten minutes remaining. The final score was 1-0. In the final game vs SDFC, Real Blast couldn't finish their chances. Despite dominating on shots, scoring on SDFC proved to be difficult. One goal was called back by an offside. Real Blast lost the game 2-0 but still managed to secure 2nd place with their 2 wins and 1 tie.
We are very proud of these 9, 10. and 11 year old girls. Congratulationsto the Real Blast Team!
Congratulations to our U12B EDP Cosmos for their Championship finish at Freehold War at the Shore tournament on June 10th & 11th, 2017!
EUSA's U12B EDP Cosmos defeated Middletown SC in dramatic fashion to win Freehold War at the Shore.
After beating familiar rival NJ Knights 6-3 in the first game, the Cosmos fell to Middletown SC 3-7 in the group stage. The win was enough to propel the Cosmos into the Semi-Final playoff round where, lead by Captain Matthew Brattole's clean sheet and a fantastic toe-poke finish by Vihaan Salian, the Cosmos took a tough-fought win over previously undefeated Marlboro S.A.
The final game saw Cosmos in a rematch with Middletwon SC. Despite another well taken goal from Vihaan Salina, the Cosmos found themselves 3-1 down just after half-time. Propelled by a goal Shlock Mehta bullied over the line off a well placed free kick. Cosmos clawed their way back into the game. A third goal was a spectacle of creation by Zachary Mokrauer who, in Pele-style, jumped in the air to back heel a corner kick to teammate Simeon Thomas who volleyed home to level the score. Simeon added his name to the scoreline again with a strike from 25 yars out that the keeper mishandled to give Cosmos the lead. The tense rematch ended with U12B EDP Cosmos beating Middletwon 4-3 to Win the Tournament.
Coach Frank Brattole put if perfectly saying, "We lost the battle but won the War at the Shore!"
Great job boys! Keep up the great work and keep playing hard!
