The Manhattan SC u23 Men's team coached by Director of Coaching Ray Selvadurai and Freddy Fuentes captured the EDP Super Club Championship on Sunday at Bridgewater-Raritan HS, NJ.
MSC defeated perennial u23 powerhouse TSF 1-0 on a goal by JC Bahr-Destefano (Williams College) in the opening 5 minutes. The backline of TL Guest (Williams College), Ben Ginzberg (Bowdoin College), Jackson Najjar (Tufts University), Dylan Hennessey (Brandeis University) and GK Erik Hanson (Brown University) shut down a potent TSF attack today in the victory.
Today's title marks the third title in the five year history of the program, as the u23s also captured the EDP Super Club title in 2012 and the ENY State Cup title in 2013 which qualified for USASA National Championships.
The championship amateur team included MSC alumni and players from top NCAA college soccer programs such as Swarthmore, Tufts, Brown, Williams, Yale, Amherst, Bowdoin, Brandeis and Wheaton (MA).
