    9-1-2017; UD v Oxford at the Sun Valley Invitational

    At the Sun Valley Invitational, in the first round of play, the Upper Darby boys’ varsity soccer team defeated Oxford 3-0 in a shoot-out.

    Scoreless after regulation and two overtimes, Upper Darby advanced to the championship match behind penalty kicks by Darlensky Charles, Carlos Chouca and Jorge Bayberan and two huge saves by goalkeeper Ransuon "Swan" Ravenelli.

    Swan and the defense were outstanding all day as backs Sahr, Mike Peters, Axel, Sam Collins and Mel combined to limit Oxford to just 2 shots on goal thru 100 minutes of play setting the stage for Swan to rise to the occasion in the shoot-out as the senior netminder swatted away two of Oxford’s shoot out attempts. Meanwhile “Sky” and Carlos put the Royals up 2-0 with their pk’s before Jorge sealed the victory with a no doubt about it blast into the back of the net.

    The shoot-out victory was the first at Upper Darby for new head coach Bob Denney.

    The Royals now play the hosts Sun Valley at 3pm on Saturday for the tournament championship.

    Meanwhile, the JV got their season off to a sizzling start as they romped to a 5-0 win over Oxford giving former Upper Darby player Emmette Kemokai his first ‘W’ as a soccer coach!!
