MOSA Crowns its Champions in the Curci Cup Challenge

Marlboro, N.J. (June 3, 2019) - The Monmouth-Ocean Soccer Association (MOSA) crowned its champions in the Spring Curci Cup Challenge on Saturday, with winners emerging in the Boys U9 to U16 divisions and Girls U9 to U15 age groups.

"The MOSA Curci Cup Challenge is one of the more unique tournaments in New Jersey," said Eric Offenberg, MOSA Curci Cup Challenge Tournament Director. "The higher level teams of one age group are pitted in a bracket with the lower level teams of the age group above. Teams that do not normally play each other compete in a single elimination tournament to get to the finals. It was a beautiful day in Marlboro and the games were very competitive, with several games going to penalty kicks to determine a champion."
