Opening Night Scores

Last night, in the GSCL openers, West Orange edged Staten Island 2.5-1.5 while Summit and Newark played to a 2-2 tie.

I knotted the latter by winning a drawish-looking opposite Bishops ending with some inspiration and luck.

Who Will Win The 2011-12 Title?

Which team do you think will win the 2011-12 GSCL title?

Will Hamilton three-peat? Will one of the perennial contenders, such as the Kenilworth Karpovs or West Orange, finally collect the crown? Or will it be one of last year's expansion teams, Chess Mates or the DOCA Knights, rising to the top?
