07/30/2015, 2:45pm EDT

The SJEB U17 Boys rounded off their season by winning the 2015 MSSL Showcase held at Tuckahoe Turf Farm. 

They opened up on day 1 with a 4-2 win over Jersey Utd, with the boys digging in twice to come from behind. Christian Bik (St Aug Prep), Vivek Trivedy (2 goals) (Eastern Regional) all scored for SJEB.

In the second match they faced Parkwood Elite from NYE, a team they have never played before, which is rare at the U17 age. They comfortably beat them 2-0 with goals from Zack Goldberg (Eastern Regional) & Christian Bik (St Aug Prep) which left them top of the table and needing only Three points in day 2 to claim the title. 

Sundays first opponent was FC Copa, who had beaten SJEB in their previous two meetings. The game was evenly match and it took a great solo goal from the speedy Zack Goldberg (Eastern Regional) to break the deadlock. However that was short lived as FC Copa replied two minutes later. Ben Clark (Haverford College) then sealed the win with the best goal of the tournament.

With the tournament title in the bag the lads played Penn Fusion, but were beaten 3-1, _____ scored the only goal.
