Busy July For the NOSHOK Soccer Team
The NOSHOK Coed International FC competed in local and out of state tournaments over the past three consecutive weekends. The team traveled to San Diego in early July for a two day tournament and lost in the semifinal match after outscoring all 56 teams in three matches the previous day. The team then competed in the 2011 ERC Corporate Challenge in mid July for the third year and again went undefeated in all 5 matches for a third championship. Lastly, the team recently competed in a single day cash prize tournament against 14 college teams finishing up the morning group games 2-2 and securing a fourth seed for the single elimination tournament bracket in the afternoon. After a grueling playoff run in the 90 degree afternoon sun, the team advanced to the championship match ending even at 0-0, forcing a penalty kick shootout with Case Western Reserve University to finish as runner-ups.
NCIFC improves its overall record to 83-13-3 since March 2008 and 31-4 for the 2011 tournament season winning four out of six championships. NCIFC would like to thank its corporate sponsors for their ongoing support. The NOSHOK soccer team is sponsored by Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, C.H. Robinson International, Frontline Soccer Shop, Global Technical Recruiters and Adecco.
