TREVOSE, On Sunday, July 31, 2016 the Phoenix Sport Club took claim of the 2016 Gerhard Mengel Over-30 Cup Title. No longer a national title, the competition lived on this season in Regions I, II and III. At the clubhouse and grounds of the First German Sport Club Phoenix the hosts won the final match 4:1 over CD Motagua of Louisiana.
Gerhard Mengel, the cup’s namesake presented the cup himself.
The Phoenix Sport club was founded in 1926 and continues to be an active soccer club in Eastern Pennsylvania. The club won all three of the EPSA state championships in 2016, taking the Amateur, Open, and Over-30. It would be the Over-30 side, however that went as far as they could hosting and winning the playoff between the three regions. Congratulations to the Phoenix Sport club for hosting a great weekend and taking home the cup!
