Union City U10 Championship Boys Travel Soccer Team Goes Undefeated

Having already clinched its league championship, the Under 10 Union City Boys Travel Soccer Club took to the Jose Marti Academy field on Sunday afternoon seeking an undefeated season.

With 9 wins already recorded, the squad entered Sunday’s match against Ridgefield looking for perfection in the fall season.  The team is a member of the Northern Counties Soccer Association, with ten teams in Union City’s division.  According to coach Steve Molina, a Detective with the Union City Police Department, “The boys have been playing over a year together and after intense training and dedication, we have managed to earn our first Championship.”

              Entering Sunday’s contest, the team had scored 55 goals in just 9 games.  Averaging more than six goals a game in soccer, well, that’s quite an achievement.

              The roster consists of twelve players, as well as co-coach Nelson Luna under the direction of Jose Renteria and Felix Adames.  When Sunday’s match was over, Union City achieved its undefeated season with a 7-1 drubbing of Ridgefield.

Next weekend the team will compete in a Super Cup Tournament in Princeton.
