Fifth Time is the Charm for FC Chanchos – Fall ’12 Champs
North Bergen’s FC Chanchos made it to the finals for the fifth time in TSLC league play – and finally took home TSLC’s Fall League Competitive Play Champions cup last Thursday, November 15 in downtown Jersey City. The never-give-up squad, headed by tenacious team captain Marco Rovelo, played hard in the final minutes of the match against Team Hudson, winning by a resounding 7 to 3 score. Juan Espinoza was awarded a well-deserved MVP prize for his team play throughout the season.
It was a battle of the “Reds” for the Recreational Champions cup with the Red & Furious facing the Red Rocket. The Red & Furious prevailed with Alberico De Pierro earning a spot as the season’s MVP. Di Pierro burned up the pitch on Thursday scoring almost half of his team’s goals. The women’s MVP, Merri McCann from Red Rocket, was recognized for her outstanding field work and strategic play.
