KORABI BEARS – Olanchano 3:0 (1:0)
Staten Island, August 12, 2007 – In a sunny and hot afternoon Korabi beat Olanchano in the quarter-finals by the score of 3:0 with 2 goals by Abdullah Begaj and 1 by Ervin Makishti. Begaj opened the scoring halfway through the first half with a magnificent solo effort, getting by three players and putting in a shot on the right past a defenseless goalkeeper. Again in the second half Begaj won the ball from the Olanchano defense on the left side and put in a right footed shot past the keeper. With Olanchano down by 2 goals they began taking more chances and their goalkeeper was caught out of position when Makishti received the ball in midfield and lobbed a long shot into the net. Korabi was by far the better team creating numerous goal opportunities while keeping their opponents scoreless. Korabi will face South America in the semi-final on Sunday, August 19, 2007.
