EDP wrapped up another edition of its annual EDP Fall Classic with nearly 900 games played over two days -- November 16th to 17th.

 

The Fall Classic is regularly one of the most popular events in the East Region for boys and girls ages 8U to 19U and amongst the 30 largest youth soccer events in the nation.

 

As the cornerstone of EDP’s Classic Series, the event hosted nearly 500 teams from along the East Coast, the Midwest, and Canada. 

 Coaches participating in  the EDP Fall Classic 2019 had the following to say about their teams and the tournament weekend:

 

“I thought the team did great. We had a little bit of trouble the first day with the weather to adjust to the conditions, but the boys looked better and better with each game. So, I’m really happy with them. We would have loved to win the final, but, unfortunately, that didn’t happen. They still played a great game and it was a great tournament, so I’m really proud of the boys.” Dusan Strmcnik, BVB Dortmund International Academy Illinois

 

“My boys did more than I expected by a landslide because we were a bit soft the last couple of years, but this year everybody got after it. For me, we won, that’s great, but to me, the bigger win was the fact that they came together as a team and they played aggressively . They worked so hard. I love it when they work hard.  It makes my job easy.” John Waraska, 1776 FC United

 

“There’s always things to work on, but we started kind of slow. We went into the championship as an underdog and they showed a lot of heart and fought and they did a great job.” Josh Oles Medford Strikers Surge

 

“Well, we came down here this weekend, we’ve had 5 practices with this team, total. Like, we’ve had kids just literally yesterday get down with their State Cup finals for New York State for their high school season. So, we’ve literally had no practices with some of the players we brought down. So we weren't expecting a lot to come down, we were just coming down to get some good games. I’ve been in this tournament for the last 7 years  I knew they’d put together a good group of teams here. They’re some good early season games.” Shannon Colton, 2004 SDA Nike Orange Team

“Great tournament. I’m very excited to see them come through. Great fields. It was a lot of fun to play.” Trap McCormack Buckingham United 2004 Premiere

 

“They did great. The tournament was fantastic. It was a good experience for them the first year they came into this tournament and I believe, maybe next year, it’ll be ours.” Alexis Cologne, White Plain Academy 2004


Girls Highlights

 

In the EDP Fall Classic Girls U9 2011G RED bracket, the Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals 11 Black (PAE) finished the group at the top with 9 points, after 3 wins and only 1 loss.

 

The Girls U13 2007G RED bracket produced New York SC G07 Pre-Academy Blue as the eventual winners after two days, who beat FC Europa 07’ Elite 1-0, in a tightly contested final.

 

Cherry Hill SC Force 2004/05 won the Girls U16 2004G RED bracket in an uneven final game, 6-1, against Freehold SL United to secure their championship medals.

 

Boys Highlights

 

The Boys U10 2010B RED bracket contained a crop of premiere clubs that produced PDA Gerrard as the winners, topping Delaware FC Wilmington DFCW ‘10B in a competitive final game, 3-2.

 

Top sides battled it out in a tough Boys U15 2005B RED bracket, but emerging from this group in the finals, SJEB Rush 05B Academy defeated Yardley Makefield Soccer 2005B Highlanders NL EDP, in a very competitive 2-0 victory.

 

In the Men's U19 01/02B RED bracket final, the Medford Strikers SC Academy B2002 beat German American Kickers United with a overwhelming 4-0 score.

 

A  total of 3,327  goals were scored during  the tournament, an average of approximately 3.70 goals per game.  

 

“Thanks to all the participant teams and players who contributed to some amazing and competitive matchups for younger players closing out their fall season and for high school players maintaining their form before winter schedules and showcases,” said EDP President Alan Shilling.
