On Friday, September 11, the West Chester United USASA Werner Fricker Open Cup Champions were honored at the 6th Annual WCUSC/Penn Fusion Club Night. The event has participants from age levels and teams of the club and the website boasts “Come out & find out that WCUSC/Penn Fusion is more than just a soccer club!!!”
While a number of activities took place, the 8:00pm timeslot was reserved for the adult amateur team. The National Werner Fricker Cup trophy was presented by Head Coach Blaise Santangelo. Santangelo was quoted prior to the event saying, “This is unprecedented in Pennsylvania. For those of you who are new to the club…you should know that you are part of a nationally recognized elite amateur program. Tonight our club will honor all the hard work and the last seven years of play.”
A match took place between West Chester’s Coaching staff and the West Chester team! Congratulations again to the champs, and to the club. There is much to be proud of!
