Congratulations to the Edison United S.A. U16G EDP Reign on their victory on June 10th & 11th, 2017, in securing the weekend win and bringing home Edison United S.A. first NJ Youth Soccer Commissioner's Cup!

The semi-finals were played on Saturday, June 10th, 2017, down in Bordentown.  The Reign faced off against Manalapan G-Force with an early 1-0 lead in the first half.  The goal came by way of a defensive clear by #27 Alexis Robinson to #16 Julianna Caccamo who took a short cross to #24 Lizzie Kilmek who sent it back to #16 Julianna Caccamo for a great shot on goal!

The finals were played on Sunday, June 11th, 2017, against Burlingtown Township Falcons.  The Reign again took an early 1-0 lead with a turnover at midfield scooped up by #16 Julianna Caccamo to put it in the back of the net.  The team played in 94 degree heat and fought hard to maintain their lead and secure the Cup!

By way of history, the Reign have been representing EUSA since 2007 when they started as team Sharks in the U5/U6 Micro division.  In 2011 as U10s they moved up to InterCounty as the Lightning Bolts and brought back the 1st division win for the girls side.  In Fall 2012 as U11s, they were the first girls team to restart EUSA's travel program.  By Fall 2013 as U12s, they were the 1st MNJYSA flight winners for EUSA.  In Fall 2014 as U13s, they took the plunge and entered EDP as the first team in the program.  They learned and struggled in their EDP division, but never gave up or gave in.  80% of the incoming Freshman from the Lightning Bolts started as Varsity players for their respective high schools.  In Fall 2016, the girls became the U16G EDP Reign, playing up one age group due to the new US Soccer age bracketing.  And now, Spring 2017, the U16G Reign have brought home the first NJ Youth Soccer Commissioner's Cup to Edison United Soccer Association!

The girls have been the steady trailblazers for EUSA!  We would like to congratulate all the team members of U16G Reign:  #27 Alexis Robinson, #2 Allison Gosling, #9, Andrea Maris, #20 Aneree Amin, #5 Courtney Nagy, #24 Elizabeth "Lizzie" Klimek, #8 Eryn Oldroyd, #16 Julianna Caccamo, #15 Kathryn "Katie" Klimek, #12 Melissa Hille, #10 Rowan Thomas-Tarighi, #3 Alexandra "Sasha" Galarza, #7 Shania Phillips, #14 Sonam Salvi, and #6 Vedna Puskur.

We'd also like to congratulate the coaching staff:  Coach Angie M. Tarighi, Assistant Coach Radu Maris, and Trainer Jose Pereira Competitive Soccer.

The U16G EDP Reign exemplify our EUSA development culture.  They are a great group of young ladies and have very bright futures ahead of them in whatever they choose to do.
