After a great National Premier League season and NPL Crossover Cup the Massapequa Crush earned a spot in the NPL National Finals from July 9 to 13 in Westfield, Indiana. They won their group in US Club Soccer's cup-based championship with all nine points and three clean sheets. Winning 3-0 over the Southern California's Fullerton Rangers, 1-0 over Missouri's SLSG Premier and 1-0 over New Mexico's Rio Rapids advancing them out of the group and into the knock-out rounds.
In the semifinal the Crush had another clean sheet defeating New Jersey's PDA Nitro 2-0 putting them in the final!
The number one ranked team in the nation and defending NPL national champions, NJ Stallions Dynamite, ended the Crush's winning ways though with a score of 4-1. Despite the loss we are so proud of the girl's amazing achievement of reaching the 2015 NPL National Championship Final! Their hard work and Paul Yarde's leadership is an inspiration for the whole club.
