2016 EPYSA State Cup: On to the Quarterfinals!

April 2, 2016 — Today, the FC Montco Die Mannschaft boys pulled out a last minute win against a gutsy and well-organized Philly Coppa team in their first step towards the 2016 EPYSA State Cup (NCS). With today's win, Die Mannschaft are through to the quarterfinals. See the full bracket here (PDF).

Missing three regular starters, Montco's coaches were forced to juggle the lineup. Asking leading striker Ryan Wallace to man the center of the defense in replacement of Die Mannschaft's captain and starting center back, Ethan Rodgers. After a couple of early opportunities, Ryan and the Montco defense shut down Coppa in the second half, allowing not a single shot on goal.

The standout defensive play kept Philly Coppa locked in their own half as Montco pushed to win the game in regulation. With less than a minute left to play, Logan Schwartz served in a cross from a set piece that Vincent Delisi, who earlier in the half had struck the crossbar on a similar play, made certain this time that the ball would find nothing but the back of the net.

Next up? Quarterfinals against an opponent TBD.
