The Second Annual Blue & Gold Cup was held this past weekend at YSC Sports. The Union would like to congratulate the following tournament winners:
- Men’s Division – Moxie FC
- Women’s Division – Oakmont National Pub
- Co-Ed Division – Bananas
The Men’s Division had 16 teams, with four group winners (Moxie FC, 422 All Stars, Sporting Doritos Locos Tacos, and Schuykillers) advancing to the knock-out round. In the semifinals, Moxie FC took down 422 All Stars 3-1 while Sporting Doritos Locos Tacos beat Schuykillers 4-2. In the final, Moxie FC wound up beating Sporting Doritos Locos Tacos in a thrilling match by a score of 4-2.
The Women’s Division had five teams, with each team playing each other once and the top two teams advancing to the final. Group play saw Oakmont dominate by going undefeated and allowing only three goals. However, the final vs. Senza Nome -- who went 3-1 in group play (only loss to Oakmont) -- was an extremely hard-fought match. The women’s final went to extra time where Oakmont capitalized on a golden goal opportunity to win 2-1.
The Co-Ed Division had five teams as well, with each team playing each other once during group play and the top two teams advancing to the final. Group play was dominated by Bananas, who also went undefeated and only conceded three goals. The Warriors had a great run as well and were able to finish in second in the group to advance to the finals for a rematch vs. Bananas. In a well played game, Bananas were a stronger team on the day and came out on top.
The winning teams will be rewarded with seats on the Party Deck for the Union's game on July 8, as well as recognition on the field at halftime during the game vs. Toronto FC.
All other teams were rewarded with tickets to the game vs. Toronto FC for their participation in the tournament.
The Union thank all participating teams and look forward to next year's Blue & Gold Cup!
