1998 CitiParks Sophomore Champions!

On Sunday, October 18, Brookline's undefeated CitiParks team, P.V.'s Pizza, brought home the CitiParks Sophomore Division championship with a 2-1 victory over Heinz at Duquesne University. Jonathon Stenger's two second period goals and Nicole Dittler's outstanding goal-tending prowess were key contributors in an excellent team performance against a talented Heinz squad.

The two teams grinded it out, with the defense keeping the upper hand in a scoreless first half. Midway through the second half, Heinz opened the scoring to take a 1-0 advantage. Stenger responded immediately with his first tally to even things up at one goal apiece. Jonathon's second goal came with six minutes to go in the game, putting Brookline ahead to stay. From then on it was the P.V. defenders who rose to the occasion, silencing the opposition to bring home the title.

A final scoring opportunity was missed when Brookline was awarded a penalty kick and Stenger's shot was blocked. Other notable performances were turned in by Brett Dusch with his aggressive mid-field play, and by Jason Dusch, whose pinpoint throw-ins kept Brookline's offense on the move. Many spirited fans were also in attendance to cheer on our boys and girls in red. We extend our sincerest congratulations to coaches Tom McMillen, John Miller, and the entire P.V's squad, who all season long have proved what teamwork and dedication can accomplish as they brushed aside all opposition en route to an untarnished record.

Members of P.V.'s Pizza's championship team include: Chris Cejrowski, Nicole Dittler, Brett Dusch, Jason Dusch, Justin Heinrich, Sean Jaras, Steven Jaras, Amy McMillen, Jack Miller, Ian Ocilka, Kevin Patterson, Tim Patterson, Mike Perry, Jennifer Ryan, Jonathon Stenger, Corrie Thearle, Greg Walsh and Eric Zilch.
