Predators FC 04 of the Metrokids Interregional Soccer League (MIRSL) won the Boys-Under-14 Eastern New York Premier League (ENYPL) title this spring with a 7-0-1 record, scoring 19 goals and giving up only 4.
“We are a young and small club, less than two years old but with the desire to continue growing and for us it is with great pride to be able to win this championship,” explained coach Alberto Entivero. “Our unity and camaraderie are very important, that we all have the same goal to prepare ourselves physically and mentally for the challenges of the ENYPL competition. We all work as a team to push the boys to be the best they can be.”
Predators won the MIRSL titles in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017, won Pennsylvania’s FC Europa Turf Cup and the Washingtonville Harvest Cup last year plus became champs earlier this year of the Metrokids Indoor Tournament and the HonduBronx Indoor Tournament.
Coach Entiveri added, “Support is also very important, not just from the coaching staff but from the team families as a whole. We are not just a team, but a family and that is a big key to our success.”
The ENYPL is the oldest continuous Premier League in the United States and is playing in its 18th year in 2018. Under the direction of ENYPL Chairperson Andreas Touros, teams from eight member leagues from all over the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) formed the ENYPL for the 2018 Spring Season.
