The Bayport Tsunami and FC Somers Razors used what they learned in the ENYYSA Premier League to help them win the State Open Cup on June 1 at Stringham Park in LaGrange.
"We’re extremely excited to win both the State Cup and Premier League," commented Bayport coach Eddie Hackett. "It was the Tsunami’s first time in the Premier League. They’re a very good group of kids who have a lot of good things ahead of them."
FC Somers Razors coach Alan Brady said, "We’re proud and thrilled to win a unique double of the State Cup and Premier League. Particular credit to our keeper Dillon Medd and defense who conceded only three goals in eight league games and had another clean sheet in the State Cup final."
Congratulations to these 13 champion youth soccer teams who automatically qualify for entry into the Northeast Regional Premier League (NERP) in 2014.
