SUMMIT, NJ - Two Summit Soccer Club teams -- 'Summit City' U-11 Boys and 'Summit Liberty' U-11 Girls -- were declared champions on the final day of the Morris County Youth Soccer Association spring soccer season.
'Summit City' captured the MCYSA U-11 boys Flight 1 crown besting teams from Chatham, Madison, Dover, Roxbury and Caldwell. City scored an impressive 38 goals over the course of 10 matches while conceding only 14 goals. City’s league championship comes on the heels of two tournament victories this season, with the squad capturing the "War at the Shore" tournament in Freehold a fortnight ago. The boys also won the top flight at the Cougar Soccer Club Memorial Day Tournament.
The 'Summit City' roster includes Sebastian Arias, Akira Bofinger, Thomas Campbell, Vincent DeFabio, Quinn Dillon, Cade Gilbert, Lucas Gomez, Henrique Guicardi, Kevin Hendrie, Steven Louiselle, Dean Mauriello, Alberth Rojas, and Allan Umana. City is trained by Darren Shimwell, who also serves as Summit Soccer Club’s Boys Director of Coaching.
'Summit Liberty' took home the MCYSA flight championship, the culmination of a unbeaten all season that boasted 6 wins and 4 draws in the girls U-11 Flight 5. Teams from Chatham, Sparta, Sussex / Warren, Hanover and Morris United were unable to defeat the Hilltop City girls. Not surprisingly, Liberty’s defense was nearly an impenetrable wall, as the team conceded just 6 goals in 10 matches.
The 'Summit Liberty' roster includes Alexandra Cornell, Julia Cornforth, Emma Davidkhanian, Ava Garvey, Siena Kessler, Marilena Kifnidis, Sofia Mendenhall, Ella Murti, Grace Penque, Annabelle Shilling, Elizabeth Supran, and Valerie Wisniewski. Liberty is trained by Kylie Williams of Maestro Soccer.
