Israel Rolls To Watermelon Cup Win
A very energetic and tight Israel team — seeded 3rd — won the 2021 Watermelon Cup title, 5-3 over #1 Norway. Two goals by Max Udell, and solo strikes by Caleb Tobias, Alan Fiore and Chester Glenn — along with stellar goalkeeping by Clemson University commit Paddy Donovan — sparked captain Jackson Hochhauser’s side to victory. The goal of the day, though, came from Norway’s Patricio Perez Elorza, off a feed from Kurt Dasbach.
In the semifinals, Israel beat Brazil 5-2, while Norway topped Iceland 5-3.
Congratulations to the victors: Jackson Hochhauser (captain), Surya Balaji, Paddy Donovan, Haran Eiger, Alan Fiore, Chester Glenn, Alex Laskin, Spencer Levine, Patrick Ostbye, Caleb Tobias, Adam Udell, Max Udell and Omeed.
