The Annual Pumpkin Cup was held November 9th for our recreational division. What a fun time everyone had! The little ones played their parents and WON! The older rec kids played in a round robin tournament to win bragging rights and pictures with the World Famous Pumpkin Cup! Everyone enjoyed a fantastic pot luck dinner provided by all the parents. Although it was quite chilly all the kids had a great time. The Cup was opened with the singing of the National Anthem this year. What a fun tradition we have at Amity. Looking forward to next year!
Dedication of Lower Soccer Fields: Prior to the start of the Pumpkin Cup, the lower soccer fields were dedicated to Aiden Dunion during a ceremony. Aiden was a four year old boy, who played soccer with us. He bravely battled cancer for eight months before he lost his battle. His Coach, Tim Boyle, made a beautiful speech in Aiden's memory. A plaque will be mounted at the lower soccer fields to honor Aiden and his bravery. A tree has been planted as well. Aiden's parents, Tara and Pat, along with his brother and sister and Grandparents, and other extended family and friends attended to ceremony. Aiden will forever be in our hearts. A special thank you to Tim Boyle for arranging to have the plaque made.
The Amity A.C. Strikers U9 boys team had an outstanding fall season and were crowned RBJSL Division Champions in their group. This was the first year the boys had played together as a group in RBJSL travel soccer, all be it playing up a level in competition (they were a U8 team playing up in a U9 league). They finished with 8 wins and only 1 loss while allowing the fewest goals against in their group. The boys showed improvement every week along with having great sportsmanship throughout the season. Congratulations Strikers.....you earned it! Way to go!!
The Amity Flash participated in the Columbus Day Weekend Wilson Fall Classic finishing in 2nd Place in the U9 division despite most of the team being under-aged. This was their first tournament event. The Flash compiled a 3 – 1 record with victories against Conrad Weiser, Twin Valley & Wilson before falling to Kutztown in a well contested game. Congrats girls! Great job!
The FC Amity Storm girls won two games and tied one to finish the Wilson Fall Classic Tournament tied for first at the end of tournament play. However, the girls had to settle for second place after losing out on the fifth tie breaker. Tough break for the Storm considering the team only let up one goal in three games.
Regardless, the girls played great and had a lot of fun.
The U10 boys soccer team won first place at the Wilson Fall Classic Tournament.
The team went 4-0 and outscored their opponents by a margin of 27-6.
Nine of the twelve players scored at least one goal, but they all contributed to the wins.
They had a ton of fun all weekend and played a lot of great soccer.
The boys have improved immensely this season.
The U11 FC Amity Fire went undefeated in five games to capture GOLD at the prestigious WAGS Tournament in Washington, D.C.
The Fire girls outscored all opponents 12-2, including a tight 1-0 victory in the Finals against the #3 ranked team from Virginia.
Congratulations to the Fire girls on this tremendous accomplishment! Gooooooooooooo FIRE!!!
