The Blau Weiss Gottschee’s U8 Royal team won 8-0 against Kosmos Hermes, June 8, and secured first-place in its division. Blau Weiss Gottschee (BWG) Soccer Club continued to rack up big wins over the weekend of June 8 and 9, even as the league’s season winds to a close.

The BW Gottschee U8 Royal team clinched first place in the Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League U8 C division after winning a game against Kosmos Hermes 8-0, June 8.

Both young teams have played strong soccer throughout the spring, and their futures in the sport look bright.

The 2001 Pre-Academy team wrapped up first place in the Northeast Pre-Academy league with an 8-0 win against New Jersey Soccer Academy (NJSA). Goal were scored by Jeremy Saravia (3), Veljko Petkovic (2), Matthew Rubinstein (2) and Jonathan Ford (1).

It was another solid game for the team’s defense, which is anchored by goalie Justin Silva.

The BW Gottschee Boys ‘00 Blue earned the title of U12 Eastern New York Arch Capital Group Cup Champions on Saturday, June 8, in Plainview, N.Y.

Astrong defense, excellent passing by themidfield and skillful finishing by the forwards led to a 5-0 victory over the Little Neck Red Dragons. Evan Chairez, Mark Dakov, Jason Lee (2) and Kevin Montesdeoca scored goals for BlauWeiss.

The 2000 pre-academy team won both of its games during the weekend. The boys beat Stonybrook 99’s 2-1 on June 8—Luis Ten and Petr Mazanek both put it in the back of the net. On June 9, the boys were really played some great soccer besting NJSA 8-1. Goals came courtesy of Gerrard Rodman (2), Sean Molloy (3), Diego Moran (2) and Eldin Lekperic.

BW Gottschee U17 Blue closed out the spring season of the CJSL playing against Silverlake at Miller Field on Staten Island. Gottschee made life difficult for themselves by giving up an early goal, but a fine strike by Ian Ryding leveled the tally at 1-1.

Gottschee went behind again but leading scorer Carlos Rebelo found the back of the net with a shot from the penalty spot. BWG fell behind 3-2 less than a minute into the second half and, despite enormous pressure, still trailed by a goal with 5 minutes to go.

However, a brace of goals from Eric Alerte gave Gottschee a much soughtafter win. The U17 Blues last game of the season is against the Kosmos in the final of the City Cup on June 22.
