Revised Update

The tournament website incorrectly listed the score for tonights Semi-Final as 1-2 but I've been provided further details with a score of 1-4 still in favor of LASC-Clyde.

Falling a game short of the final is a wonderful achievement for the team put together by Eric Brief.  Former Maccabiah players Cohen, Zweiback, Hochberger, Indech, Stone, Brief, Benjamin and Bressler formed the nucleus for a solid group of players coming together from all over the US.  

Congrats to all who participated on a job well done.  Next year, this is the team to beat....

Shalom from Arizona!

Semi Final

Latest news from Casa Grande:

MUSA lose in the Semi Final of the Columbus Cup 1-2 to LA Soccerclub-Clyde.  Details to follow.

The Opponent

MUSA will play LASC - Clyde in tonights Semi Final.  

I'm a proud blogmaster tonight as LASC Clyde is my home club in Los Angeles. 

The team, made up of local talent has represented themselves at many Vegas Tournaments and a part of the LA Soccerclub, steeped in Amateur Soccer history since the 1950's.  

More on the club can be found here:

Keep your computers handy as the details will follow shortly.

and they keep playing....

News Flash:  Into the Semi's

MUSA, in a hard fought quarter final battle against The Gibos in Casa Grande, scored an early penalty (Seldin) to get to the Semi Finals to be played 7:00pm this evening.

Anchored by the defense of Bressler, Benjamin and Stone, MUSA has not allowed a goal thus far in the tournament as they look to get to Monday's Final against a team to be named shortly.  

When we here, you will too.

Harvest Cup Update

MUSA finished top of the group in pool play through mid day on Sunday.  Game results are as follows:

Saturday 10/12
10:00 am  MUSA 1 - 0 OC Spurs  (Zweiback)
03:15 pm  MUSA 2 - 0 North Dallas 40-Super 50 (Hochberger, Gallo)

Sunday 10/13
08:45 am  MUSA 0 - 0 SI United
04:30 pm  MUSA v The Gibos (Quarter Final)

2 wins and a draw with 3 clean sheets for MUSA put them 8 points clear of the second place team in their group.  The quarter finals sees them play a strong team from So Cal, a team they played last year in Las Vegas which ended in a hard fought draw.  There has to be a winner this time however and Coach Brief is excited yet concerned as a number of injuries have left the otherwise strong team with 3 subs for the next game.  The team is bolstered by the return of Dan Indech who comes off a medal winning performance in Israel this summer and an even stronger performance at a Bar Mitzvah yesterday in Phoenix.

More to come from sunny Casa Grande, AZ....
