Congratulations to the Hibernian Fusion -
Under 16 Girls National Futsal Champions
Hamilton Township Mayor John Bencivengo today commended the Ancient Order of Hibernian’s Under 16 girls Futsal team, the Fusion, who yesterday won the Youth Futsal National Championship in Anaheim, Californian.
Futsal is a variation of soccer, played five versus five, rather than 11 versus 11. It tends to have a quicker pace than traditional soccer and players cover the entire field, rather than zones.
“I congratulate the Hibernian Fusion on their exciting national championship. It is something that the members of the team, coaches, their families and our entire community can take great pride in. Having a national champion from Hamilton Township says a lot about our young, female athletes, the strength of our town’s recreational organizations and the kind of young people that come from our community,” says Hamilton Township Mayor John Bencivengo. “In light of the Fusion’s national title, we are beginning to work on a plaque to honor them on our Field of Champions in Veterans Park, where their plaque will eventually hang next to other youth state and national champions from our community.”
