The Gaucho, Riverside rivalry was alive and well in the hearts of lifetime Gauchos, Coach Dwayne and Coach Mitch.  Having been apart of the many battles of this rivalry our coaches had their respective teams ready for the Riverside Invitational Tournament.

Coach Dwayne had his team dominate pool play with wins over Ramsey Saints (37-10) and Harlem4Life (43-11), for a 2-0 record.  In Bracket play Harlem4Life once again had to face a Gaucho team fixed on winning another championship.  After a (42-8) victory Coach Dwayne had our Young Choz ready for The Riverside Hawks.  Our determined Gauchos had one thing on their mind take the Chip from Riverside.  In the usual hard fought battle our Young Choz took home the Gold with a 55-45 victory.

Coach Mitch faced his Riverside rival in the first game of pool play.  Our Young Choz displayed their superior talent with a 48-34 victory.  In their second game of pool play the Jersey City Boys and Girls Club fell victim to the Gauchos press and a 56-18 defeat.  Finishing 2-0 in pool play Coach Mitch was ready for an assault on the Chip.  Sk Elite was up first and went down to a 47-25 defeat.  Up next was our undermaned Gauchos who had several players absent from this contest.  In a hard fought brother against brother game Coach Mitch and his squad outlasted Coach Dante and his.  In the Championship game our Choz once again faced The Rising Stars.  Our Young Choz got out to a commanding lead and coasted throughout the game.  In the forth quarter The Rising Stars made a strong push to make it a game, but coach Mitch reinserted his starters to secure the Championship Trophy.

Congrats to our Young Choz for a successful weekend and another Victory over long time rival Riverside Hawks.
