Marlboro, NJ - New Jersey Rush Soccer Club crowns 2 NJ State Champions!
New Jersey Rush sent two girls teams to the USYSA National Championship Series NJ State Cup finals on Sunday, June 1,2014. Both teams emerged as State Cup Champions and will represent New Jersey Youth Soccer in the Region 1 Championships being held in Kingston Rhode Island June 26-July2, 2014
The U15 NJ Rush 98 Girls NPL team defeated NJ Crush FC Charge 3-2 to win their first USYSA NJ State Cup title. This match was a hard fought battle between two outstanding teams who had previously met just two weeks earlier, in a rain shortened match, in the US Club NJ State Cup Semifinals. NJ Crush won that previous meeting and went on to win the US Club State title. In the second meeting, NJ Rush 98 Girls NPL proved to be the better side and will now advance to represent New Jersey Youth Soccer in the Region 1 Championships.
With a number of college coaches looking on, the U16 NJ Rush 97 Girls NPL team won 1-0 in double overtime to clinch their first USYSA NJ State Championship. This was an outstanding win for the NJ Rush 97 girls as their opponent NJ Stallions Dynamite had not lost a match in over 18 months. NJ Stallions Dynamite won the Region 1 Premier League, so these two could meet again at the Region 1 Championships in a few weeks.
