The boys were very unlucky to concede first after dominating the majority of the 1st half and the opening minutes of the second half.

In the added time, Nick Matese scored the 3rd goal of the game. With a final score of 3:1, PFC Barcelona advanced to the quarterfinals of the NJYS President’s Cup. 

The next opponent was NJ Santos Rush 2006 B Black. Heavy rain and cold temperatures didn’t stop the PFC team from dominating the game. In the 21st min, Felipe Matar Grandi’s through ball to Brandon Urias put him into a 1v1 situation with the opponent's goalkeeper. Brandon was clinical from short-range and scored another one of his trademark goals.

After beating the NLSA team 3:1 earlier in the season in a regular league game the PFC boys were determined to prove they were the better team again. Although this time it was much more of a typical cup game with the final at stake and both teams being very cautious not to concede first. Still, the PFC Barcelona team had the majority of the possession and created more chances. The only goal of the game came 4 min before the end on a corner kick by Liam Kennedy and a one-time finish by Zeb Jerdonek. Even the 8 min added time could not change the outcome of the game. The boys deservedly were headed to the final the next day. 

At 12:30 pm on May 22 in Marlboro, NJ in a 90 plus degree heat PFC Barcelona and Clifton Stallion Turf Boys walked on the field for a pre-game presentation. Just a few minutes later the referee blew his whistle to start the game. After a slow start, the boys took the initiative and never looked back. In the 23rd minute, Zeb Jerdonek put Brandon Urias through on goal and he didn’t make a mistake. 1:0 PFC. In the last minute of the 1st half, Francis Savard put pressure on the opponent's goalkeeper and stole the ball to score the second goal of the final.  In the 64th minute of the game, Matthew Kim started an attack in the middle third of the field, exchanged a couple of passes with Chris Lee, and played a ball to Felipe Matar Grandi who then passed the ball in the wide area to Liam Kennedy. He took a touch and crossed the ball on the ground Matthew Kim who was unmarked from the penalty spot put the finishing touch on the game.  3:1 and well-deserved victory.  Half an hour later the two captains of the team Nick Matese and Felipe Matar Grandi raised the cup above their heads and the celebration began. The jubilant players started jumping up and down and, hugging each other and the smiles on their faces showed just how much that success means to them.
