Christos FC, ASA Chesapeake Charge to meet in Maryland Over-30 Cup final
Christos FC Over-30 have reached the state title match for the fourth year running behind two second-half goals in their shutout of Washington Elite O30. Vinnie Piscopo scored the game winner, putting away a pass from Marvin Desormeaux in the 54th minute.
The final against ASA Chesapeake Charge Over-30 Men, set for Sunday at 11 a.m. ET at Oakland Mills High School, has an interesting twist. Christos is not only the defending Maryland champion in the Over-30 Cup but it has won the last two national titles in that category.
This season, some of the players who took part on those championship sides moved over to the Charge. The final will feature former teammates facing off against each other in pursuit of reaching the Region I qualifiers and hopefully then onto the US Adult Soccer National Cup Finals. The regional qualifiers start on 27 April.
