It was Coughlin that got the lone score, downing Selinsgrove, 1-0, to win the championship.

"I thought our defense played well. It was a really hot day and we had some players step up, especially in that overtime game" Selinsgrove coach Chris Lupolt said. "I was really pleased with our defense. We just need to find people to step up and score, that's what we need to work on."

Ross's two goals both came off headers as he was named the tournament MVP for Midd-West (2-0).

"He's just a dangerous forward. He works really hard (and) he's really fast," Midd-West coach Chris Sauer said. "He had the opportunities and he really cashed in."

George's goal for the Defenders (1-1) was unassisted.

"It was nice to see early in the game us experience some adversity," Sauer said. "It was a great response."

In the first game, Midd-West blanked Millville, as Arbogast scored twice while Tanner Ebright and Ross each added a goal.
