New Jersey Copa FC has made history, with both its NPSL Men and UWS Women securing first place of their conferences within their respective leagues.
“This is a truly amazing achievement,” said Head Coach Roberto Aguas. “In year two of our club’s existence, we have both our men and our women sitting atop the table in their conferences. We are in excellent positions to make even deeper postseason runs than we did 2016, which saw the NPSL Men in the regional championships.”
The NJCFC NPSL Men, following a hard-fought 1-1 tie against archrivals Clarkstown on Sunday, June 25th, are tied at the top of the table of the Keystone Conference with West Chester United. After going down 0-1, Ryan Campbell found the equalizer to earn NJCFC one point in the NPSL.
Sitting on a 5-1-2 record for the 2017 Season, the NJCFC Men have two games remaining on their regular season schedule, which threaten their spot in the NPSL playoffs. They will play a dangerous BuxMont Torch team, who is directly behind NJCFC in the Keystone Conference rankings, on Saturday, July 1st, before traveling to the Junior Lone Star FC on July 8th.
“This weekend is huge for us,” said Associate Head Coach Billy Englishby. “Throughout the good days and the bad, this group of players has come together and consistently put the team first in everything they do. We’re really looking forward to continuing to prove ourselves in these next two critical matchups.”
