The Empire Supporters Club defeated the Viking Army SC, 3-0, to become the first-ever South Ward Football Challenge Champions.
The charitable event, organized by New York Red Bulls supporters, took place at "The Courts" in Harrison, NJ, Sunday morning and was sponsored by Soccer Stop and the Spanish Pavillion.
Former New York Red Bulls defender Mike Petke and current Assistant Coach Richie Williams were part of the Red Bulls Front Office team that defeated the Garden State Supporters and walked away with the third place.
Harrison Mayor, Raymond J. McDonought and Councilmember Anselmo Millan were present at the end of the event to hand over the Spanish Pavillion Cup to the new champions.
There is no official word from the organizers yet, but the event is poised to become an annual one to be held in town.
