SUMMIT, NJ - It took two periods of Extra Time in the final to get the job done but 'Summit City', competing in the U11 Boys orange bracket, emerged as champions in the 28th Parsippany Pride Invitational Tournament. 'Summit City' was joined by 'Summit Freedom', U11 Girls, and 'Summit Bhoys', U12, as top finishers, with the latter two squads each earning a second-place finish.
In sum, 17 teams from Summit Soccer Club competed in the event, the largest soccer tournament in the Northeast.
'Summit City' beat teams from Waldwick, Mountain Lakes, Livingston, and Franklin Lakes, scoring 19 goals and conceding only five in four matches during the tournament weekend. The team will now look to build off of their success as they compete later this week in the quarterfinal round of State Cup play and return to Flight 1 Morris County Youth Soccer Association league action.
'Summit City' team members include:
Darren Shimwell of Impact Soccer serves as 'Summit City' trainer.
