This past Friday The Eastern District Soccer League held its Annual Champions Dinner Dance at the Ukranians Center in Yonkers. It was a night to honor all of our Champions from last season. It was also an opportunity for all of our divisoins to come together to celebrate our love for soccer. The event takes many months of planning and our dedicated Board of Directors under the leadership of our President Peter Pinori did a wonderful job in putting this night together. We should also thank all of our divisions and their teams for doing an excellent job in representing in numbers. With approximately 200 guests in attendance the hall was filled and the dancefloor was packed!
In attendance were a number of special guests including State Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer. Representative Mayer has been a dedicated supporter of soccer for many years and friend to the EDSL as it has grown through the years. With her support the EDSL has been allowed to thrive in Westchester County and we can not thank her enough for all of the support that she has given to our league.
There were many champions honored on Friday night, however, one team earned the title of Team of the Year. Real Sociedad of Liga de Yonkers took home three trophies on the night! it was a year to remember for Real Sociedad and one that will be tough to repeat. Real Sociedad were able to win the Liga de Yonkers Championship, An EDSL Division Championship and The EDSL Tournament of Champions all in one year! They were also a finalist in the Sal Rapaglia State Premier Cup. Congratulations to Real Sociedad and to all of our champions from last year.
