U16 SPF Sparx, U13 SPF Tempest Take Titles (6/06)
The Flight 1 U16 SPF Sparx repeated their U14 championship win of a year ago with a 2-0 championship victory over the Aberdeen-Matawan Twisters despite playing most of the game a player short. The Flight 2 U13 SPF Tempest gained their first championship by upsetting Flight 1 winner Clark Cats 2-1, in a dramatic come-from-behind battle. The Tempest tied the game midway through the second half and won it on a penalty kick during the last minute of stoppage time. Congratulations to the teams and coaches Eric Ruano and Luis Rodriques, respectively, for their accomplishments in the MNJYSA.
