ENYSSA U-23 State Cup

Stringham Park August 2nd 2015

August 2, 2015- Stringham Soccer Park La Grange NY
FC Dutchmen of the EDSL Capital District division became the boys of summer for 2015 as they won the Eastern New York Soccer Men’s-Under-23 title. The new champs did not give up a goal in the Final Four played at Stringham Park in LaGrange last Sunday, August 2.

These games for state supremacy pitted the top teams from the  Capital District Soccer League (EDSL), the Greater Hudson Valley Soccer League (EDSL) and Long Island Soccer Football League (LISFL).  
“This U23 Leagues comes together only through great cooperation between Eastern New York’s adult and youth associations,” commented EDSL President Peter Pinori.
 
In the semifinals, Ty Aderou scored in the 10th minute while Rafik Mehhoudi and Mike Fanelli added second half goals as the FC Dutchmen of Capital division of the EDSL cruised to a 3-0 win over the GHVSL’s East Fishkill. In the other semi, Port Jefferson of the LISFL defeated the GHVSL’s in the Final Four, LaGrange 2-0.

As the Rosedale Super Eagles won last summer’s championship, LISFL fans were hoping that Port Jefferson would keep the title in their historic league, which was founded in 1948. But coach Joe Duffy and his very impressive FC Dutchmen team had other ideas. Way Ayger scored in the 22nd minute and Connor Rubin added an insurance goal just before the final whistle to bring the championship trophy to Albany County for the first time in the seven-year history of the summer competition.
 
. “All in all, it was the perfect soccer day.” Said Enrico Romano SRA of Eastern New York
