PSG capped off a fine first season together by winning the MSSL Fall Challenge tournament.
Resolute defending saw the boys not concede a goal all weekend in their four games with payback wins over EDP rivals Burlington and FC Maximus.
The final saw us matched against a skilled South Plainfield team however the PSG boys controlled the game and eventually came out 1-0 winners to add to our tournament success in Baltimore earlier in Ocotober.
Spurs Finalists in National Girls No. 1 Tournament
Mercer FC Spurs U13G - FC Stars of Mass
Mercer Spurs had a great weekend up at the number one Nationally ranked FC Stars of Mass tournament held in Boston, Massachusetts.
Spurs opened up group play with a spirited defensive display resulting in a 0-0 tie against the highly ranked World Class Academy from New York, followed up with a 1-0 win over NJ Crush, leaving us top of the table at close of play on Saturday night.
Sunday saw us matched up against the number 2 team in New Hampshire, Global Premier Soccer, the girls came out tough with a 2-1 win with goals from Kelli and Amanda seeing us safely into the final.
We then went on to contest a very close game in the final, where we played local club the Boston Breakers. Our girls dominated large passages of play but ended up narrowly losing 2-1 to a PK in the final 3 minutes of play. The girls played hard and got progressively better as the weekend went on, this sets us up nicely for our EDP league campaign.
Great job girls, looking forwards to a great season!
