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!!
