[INTERNATIONAL SOCCER SUMMIT] Queens Park Rangers won the 2013 Capelli Sport/Newark Liberty International Soccer Summit with a 5-1 win over English rival Liverpool in the final. U.S. teams PDA, St. Benedict's Prep and FC Bolts Celtic finished 5-6-7 in the eight-team tournament held in Newark, N.J.

Final: Queens Park Rangers 5 Liverpool 1. QPR took a 2-0 lead on goals by Olamide Shodipo and Golden Boot winner Aaron Mitchell off a pair of giveaways by Liverpool's defense in the first half. Sergi Canos scored just before the half to cut the deficit to 2-1, but QPR ended any suspense when Reece Grego-Cox and Mitchell connected early in the second half. Andreas Komodikis capped the second half explosion with a 77th-minute goal.

Third Place: FC Inter Milan 4 Maccabi Haifa 2. After blowing a two-goal lead, Inter Milan didn't lose its composure and scored twice over the final 12 minutes to secure third. Matteo Colombini scored on a cross through the goal-mouth to snap a 2-2 standoff in the 78th minute before Federico Bonazzoli sealed the victory for the Nerazzurri with his second goal of the match. Bonazzoli gave Inter a 1-0 lead in the 26th minute, Samuel Appiah made it 2-0 in the 51st minute, but Maccabi responded through Amit Zenati and Or Eiloz (free kick from 30 yards).

Fifth Place: PDA 2 St. Benedict's 1.
Jared Stroud and Brian White put PDA ahead in the first half, and it held on despite an 81st-minute goal by Jose Mederos to win the battle of New Jersey club and prep programs, partners in a new full-time residency program.

Seventh place: FC Bolts Celtic 3 Fuddercol 2. Harry Swartz scored a goal in the waning seconds, his second goal in as many games, to ease the Boston club past Fuddercol from Colombia. Steve DeLeo had lifted the Bolts into 2-2 tie with a goal earlier in the second half.
