PWSC LI Cup Champions!

Congratulations to our Cup Winners: The GU14 Sandstorm and the GU17 Panthers

Updated Thursday June 23, 2016 by Ross Weinstein.

The PWSC would like to congratulate our two LI Cup Championship teams, the Girls U14 Sandstorm and the Girls U17 Panthers.  Both teams took very different paths to their victories.  The Panthers came back to win a thrilling 6-5 battle after going down 5-3 with 15 minutes left int he game.  The Sandstorm cruised to a 5-0 victory while outscoring their opponents 16-0 over the course of the tournament.

The PWSC would also like to congratulate the GU12 Blue Raiders for their 2-1 Runner-Up performance.

The History of the LI Cup:  

In the late 1970's the league decided to conduct a Cup Tournament for all league teams. Through a single elimination format, every team in all age groups compete against each other across division alignments for the opportunity to earn the title of Long Island champion for their age group. In 1982, Chase Bank offered to sponsor the tournament, turning the LI Cup into the Chase Cup. Teams that reached the semi-finals were awarded t-shirts, finalists received trophies, and the winner hoisted the coveted Chase Cup Champions Trophy.

As the league continued to grow and more divisions were added to each age group, it became necessary to divide the tournament into three brackets; Major, Minor, Intermediate, and Minor. The tournament begins in March and runs through the Spring season, and over time has become the largest single-elimination soccer tournament in the world with more than 22,000 competitors (boys and girls, ages 9-19).

After ten years of overseeing the growth of the tournament, Chase was unable to continue on as the sole sponsor of the event. However, another Long Island community stalwart, Waldbaum's, stepped up as a co-sponsor. In 1995, Chase had to drop its sponsorship of the tournament due to its merger with JP Morgan, and Waldbaum's took over sole sponsorship of the Waldbaum's Cup. In 2002, Vytra Health Plans also made a generous donation towards the tournament. Waldbaums continued on as the only sponsor of the Cup from 2003 to 2010, but Bankruptcy proceedings for the store's parent company, A & P, in 2011 forced the event's sponsor to step down. The tournament went on as the LI Cup for the first time since 1982.

Still, under directors Jim Dawes, Holly Maresco, and Marc Stein the tournament continues to be one of the most popular events of the LIJSL soccer year with as many as 1600 teams participating each Spring.
