South Stars Take Champions Cup
Fleming Yonkers 6/28/15
Today in Fleming field Yonkers NY the EDSL held the semifinals and finals for this year $5,000 Champions Cup that determined the EDSL 13 divisions over all winner.
The first game at 10am had Westchester play vs. Cabo Verde the final score was 4-1 for Westchester, but the game was very competitive until the latest part of the 2nd half where Cabo Verde tried to tie the game and took many changes to change the score. Westchester was very smart and by using a counter attacking style where able to increase their lead even thought they where playing with a man short.
In the second semifinal the winner of the Open South Division Stade Breton played South Stars also from the Open South Division. Also a very hard fought game that saw South Stars winning by the score of 2-0.
The third place game was than played by Cabo Verde and Stade Breton which saw Stade Breton winning by the score of 3-0 Cabo Verde did win $300 for coming in 4th and Stade Breton won $500 for coming in 3rd.
The final game was played between Westchester and South Stars. South Stars scored first, but Westchester was able to tie the game. The final score saw South Stars win again vs Westchester just like they did 2 weeks ago on the Open division playoff final by the score of 4-1.
Westchester did win $1,200 for coming in 2nd and South Stars won $3,000 for being the EDSL Champion for the year 2015.
