10/3/10 - The U12M Palisades Pirates are off to a red hot 5-0 start this season and are well on their way to an Inter-County Division II championship.

The Pirates are led by three co-captains: Nick Richter, Charles Ryan and Jared Colletti. Each captain represents a different area of the field - Richter at sweeper, Ryan in the midfield, and Colletti up top at striker.

"Our players are more committed to the program than any I have worked with," says head coach Sherri McClintock. "Their hard work, love of the game, and team chemistry all demonstrate a high level of commitment."

Another aspect of the team McClintock enjoys is their balance. The Pirates have scored nineteen goals so far this the season, with seven different players finding the back of the net, and assists coming from nine others.

"We are just so balanced and everyone contributes," McClintock says. "Everyone on the team steps up and plays like a star, and that is what makes us so dangerous."

The U12M Palisades Pirates: Nick Bucich, Jared Colletti, Michael Creighton, Tom Eichlin, Wyatt Gordon, Ryan Kelly, Patrick Lodwig, Bobby McClintock, Adam Mekki, Nick Richter, Charles Ryan, Jack Salva, Adam Sherman, Bobby Shoemaker, and Daniel Weaver.
