PFC Success At Ranked # 1 Tournament In The Nation EDP Cup Fall

EDP Cup Fall Tournament is a nationally-ranked, highly-competitive event, which serves as the highlight for many club teams' fall seasons. The event hosted some of the best youth 9U-14U boys and girls teams as well as 15U boys from some of the nation's top clubs as well as the US Soccer Development Academy program, the US Youth Soccer National League, and ECNL. Teams traveled from across North America, including out-of-region states Texas, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Florida, and 2 Canadian Provinces.

Princeton FC was represented in the elite tournament by two boys teams - U-12 (2008) Porto and U-13 (2007) Liverpool Black. 

The '08 Porto team recorded four wins our of four games to finish on top in their flight. The boys scored a total of 17 goals and allowed only 5. After starting the competition with a win vs Watchung Hill SA Madrid (3-1) the Porto boys met a very challenging opponent in the second game - Liverpool, Michigan. Porto had a great start in that game, scoring 2 goals to get the lead, but gave one back from a perfectly placed free from one of the best Liverpool players. Another great start in the second half saw the Porto team with 4-1 lead, but a penalty kick gave Liverpool a much needed life line and hope. The last 10 minutes of the game were very exciting with situations in front of both goals, however Porto managed to keep the score line unchanged and won 4-2. 
On the second day of the tournament Porto began with a win over NJ Stallions Boca (4-1) to secure a place in the Final. 
In the Final game Porto met a team they remember well from last Summer. It was considered somewhat unlucky back then when Washington United managed to score one goal in the last second to eliminate otherwise the dominant throughout the entire game Porto team. After missing many good chances to score and secure the spot in the Final, Porto failed to convert and Washington United went on to the Final of last EDP Summer Cassic. 
This time around Porto had a better approach and motivation. After only 10 min the team was already leading 3-0. With 4-0 at halftime the Porto boys only needed to stay composed in the second half and secure the win. Washington United managed to score early in the second half (4-1), but that appeared to only motivated Porto more and after some close misses they scored another two goals (6-1), which effectively ended the competitive element in the game. 



Congratulations to team Porto for not only winning, but also for playing very good soccer throughout the tournament!

Princeton FC U-13 '07 Liverpool Black Boys recorded three wins to reach the Final. 
On the first day Liverpool Black faced Beadling Elite (PAE) and won comfortably 4-0. The seocnd game proved to be more challenging, however Liverpool topped CAPS '07 (NJ) 2-1. 
With a win over Medford Strikers Surge on Sunday (2-0) Liverpool Black secured its spot in the Final. PA Dominion FC (PAW) managed to take the win with 2-0 final score. 
Congratulations on team Liverpool Black for that achievement!
