Kickin’ It on the LES: Soccer Tourney Held at Nike Field

A couple of weekends ago we stopped by Nike Field in Sara D. Roosevelt Park to catch the semi-finals of the Grand Street Cup.  The spirited soccer league was formed four years ago on the Lower East Side. Organizer Matt Penrose was kind enough to send along photos from the event.  Around 85 players take part each season. Matt and company are now gearing up for a spring league and another tourney, a fundraiser for the Japan relief effort.

Alexandria was victorious in this season's Grand Street Cup.
