2017 USOC competition has begun.
A few ESCers watched PDL Copa lose 2-1 to NJ Motown Celtics (who?) on Wednesday. Looks like the Morristown side will be traveling to Rochester in the next round.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Use the Open Cup for guys who need minutes.  Marsch usually goes with something pretty close to the top team and that hasn't worked out so just use it on guys who need the minutes and hopefully we get lucky and draw home field advantage.

 

Etienne will probably be big for that.  Gulbrandsen same.  Veron in the same boat.

 

 

-----------Gulbrandsen-------

Etienne----Sacha----Veron

---------Davis---Adams

Lade Long Perinelle Murillo

 

Something like that.

Drinking today (I know, you're shocked) with an old-time Morristown soccer guy, and he didn't even know this club.

Go to the Ocean City Coffee Company, best coffee I've ever had. They roast like 100 different flavors, they are my favorite part of my annual September vacation there.
As for the cup, saw that Reading plays the Cosmos. I would not be shocked if Reading won as the Cosmos aren't any good at all (in fact NASL at this point isn't very good to be honest). If that happens the real winners could be boy city because then they may actually win a game in the competition.
