Sreeshti Cup Soccer 2008

October 18th and 19th put Sreeshti on a bigger map of sporting event organizers for greater causes. After organizing a successful cricket tournament in August to raise fund for the flood victims in India, this time Sreeshti organized a truly colorful Soccer tournament to support and raise funds for the efforts of CRY America (Child Rights and You).This time the tournament was organized to create more awareness about Sreeshti’s effort to help and support the less fortunate ones, and Corporate America responded by sponsoring 6 teams to participate in this two day event. Citi, Qualcomm, Cevian, Tata Consulting Services (TCS), Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) and Mercedes sponsored one team each for this tournament. The Jewelry House ‘Chintamani’ of South Plainfield, NJ also partially sponsored the event.The venue was Middlesex VoTech Soccer Ground at Piscataway and each nine-a-side game was 20 minutes each half with a 10 minute break. Extra times were 7 minutes each half with 6 minutes break.

The event was truly international in the spirit and participation. Soccer players from 9 different countries played in this tournament.

All preliminary round games were played on 17th and two semifinals and the final was played on Sunday.

In the preliminary round from Group A Qualcomm and TCS sailed through the semis and from Group B Cevian made to the finals easily after beating Cognizant with a convincing 3-1.

The semifinal between TCS and Qualcomm was very exciting. At one point Qualcomm was playing with eight players, but with a superb show of determination and excellent teamwork they beat TCS 2-1 to reach the finals.

The final between Cevian and Qualcomm started merely 45 minutes after Quaqlcomm played their semi against TCS. This time also Qualcomm held their fort against the eight power horses of Cevian for 40 minutes, thanks to the determined effort of their defense and goal-keeper. Only during the second half of the extra time Cevian took control of the field and scored three goals within a span of 6 minutes to become the Champion of the tournament.
