Colombia FC Takes Morton Title

Stewart Final Up Next

Start of Over-30 with Christos & Bays. (18 March) Colombia FC has been a regular entry of the Morton Cup since  its beginning in 2013. A seventh try turned out to be the lucky one as Colombia lifted the trophy for the first time with a 2:0 shutout of the Baltimore Kickers. Andres Gomez calmly put away two goals from the penalty spot while Julian Castiblanco earned the clean sheet in front of the net. Jason Vuniga in central midfield and Julian Gomez at center back controlled the tempo for the Division I champions of the Montgomery County League. Congratulations to manager Jorge Daniels whose side joins FC Reina (twice), Sierra Rangers, Brothers United, Catonsville FC and Starliners FC among the Morton winners. The Morton Cup was established in 2013 as a state cup championship in honor of former MSSA vice president Darwin "Lefty" Morton, who could always be seen on the touch lines of cup and league games throughout Maryland.

This Sunday we play the title match for a competition that has been around much longer, the Stewart Cup. It will be a replay of last year's final as cup holder Christos FC will meet once again Maryland Major league rival Izee Auto FC. The Stewart Cup, Maryland's amateur championship that started in 1932, determines who represents Maryland in the Amateur Cup. The match is set for 11:00 at Laytonia Recreational Park.

The Maryland Over-30 Cup kicks off this Sunday as well with Christos FC taking on the Maryland Bays in the first of two semifinals. It will be played after the Stewart final at 1:00. Colombia FC and the Baltimore Kickers will meet the following weekend in the other semifinal.

The Rowland Cup championship is set for 31 March between Christos and Yinz United. Our Open champion will advance to the Werner Fricker Cup, which was won by Christos last season. 

Our busy cup season is coming near the end. Get caught up with all of the results & schedules at the tabs above. A recap of the season can be found on our Archives page.
