Newark Earthquakes receive commendation
The Newark city council chambers were crowded on Thursday, March 13. Following the flag salute, roll call and approval of Minutes, the Newark Earthquakes soccer club took center stage. Mayor Dave Smith, celebrating three decades at that post, called members of the Under-11 Boys Association Cup Championship team to receive city accolades. The team, undefeated in league play, won the Division 3 Al Caffodio District 3 Cup and, for the first time in over ten years, placed first in the state.
The coaching staff, Ann Lombana, Andy Stuart and Rossi Bradford worked with team members to train, encourage and support them throughout the season. Newark Earthquake team members include: Miles Bradford, Ryan Callahan, Tommy Gallagher, Eddie Higares, Luke Lombana, Mario Moreno, Vicente Padilla, Ernesto Silva, Steve Silva, Devin Strouse, Andrew Veloza, Travis Welch, Ryan Wilson and Romario Zelaya.
