Thursday, 02 October 2014

The Men of Troy won its 2nd tournament of the season while besting the 7 team Wallenpaupack JV Tournament on Saturday, September 27, 2014. The Men of Troy finished with a record of 4 wins, 1 loss, and 1 tie on the day earning them 13 points. While an undefeated Lakeland team finished in 2nd place with a record of 3 wins and 3 ties earning them 12 points on the day's competition.

Matt Zero won the tournament's Golden Boot Award for scoring 3 goals on the day. Two of them in the final match against West Scranton. He was also the Men of Troy representative for the All-Tournament team.

Twenty-two MOT players participated on the day and all got plentiful playing time. Coach DeRenzis stated, "It was an overall team effort that enabled us to win this tournament championship. Each of our 3 goalkeepers played two games and combined only allowed 1 goal over 6 matches. It was a team win in every sense of the word!"

Hopefully the Men of Troy will build steam from this tournament championship that will catapult them into the 2nd half of the season.

The Men of Troy will next play on the hill this Tuesday against Division 1 leader Valley View. Kickoff is slated for 4:15! Please come out and support our NP Men of Troy!

NP Boys' Win Kotula Kick Off Classic Print E-mail
Tuesday, 02 September 2014

 

NP Boys Soccer

The 3rd time proved to be the charm as the MOT held off a stubborn and dangerous Western Wayne Wildcat team in winning the 2014 Jamie Kotula Kick Off Classic Soccer Tournament championship on Sunday night, August 31 by a final score of 1-0. Junior Ben Stivala scored the game-winning goal in the second half.

The past two seasons have found the MOT "always the bridesmaid..." as the team made the final, but lost consecutive years to Holy Cross in the championship match. But the MOT would not be denied this season as it beat Dunmore (4-0) and dispatched Holy Cross in sweet vindication (5-0) on its way to face the Wildcats in the final.

The season is far from over, but a solid foundation has been laid with a quick 3-0 start to begin the soccer season. One of several team goals was realized in winning the Kotula Tournament, now the MOT find themselves pressing to gain its next team goal as it finds its focus on "one game and one training session at a time!"
