With the Under-16 Regional Club Championship in progress at a different site over the weekend, the Under-19’s were back in action at the Princeton University Field Hockey Complex. The third weekend of the Regional Outdoor Club League (ROCL) Region 6 saw yet another shift in the leader board with FC United maintaining a slim one point lead over Jersey Intensity FH, who is the only undefeated club with two less games played.
However, FC United suffered their first defeat and Rapid Fire Elite secured their first point during the weekend excitement. Total Dutch, who was in second place after the second weekend, suffered two close defeats by a one-goal margin dropping them down to fifth place. Impact, with two close victories yesterday, moved up three spots from sixth place to third place. Watch the leader boards to see which of the ten clubs will make it to the championship and be awarded the championship trophy.
Weeked four of competition is Saturday, May 11, and will be held at Rutgers University at Bauer Track and Field / Field Hockey Complex on the Astroturf. All games will be in the U-16 Division.
U-19 competition will resume on the weekend of May 18.
On behalf of the organizers of the ROCL and all the participants, we want to congratulate the clubs who will be representing Region 6 at the National Club Championship in July. The qualifying clubs are:
U-16: South Jersey Edge and Jersey Intensity FH, U-19: Spirit of USA and Jersey Intensity FH
Good Luck to all and we know you will represent this Region well!
