Cosmopolitan Soccer League Metro Div 2 West
KORABI – ASTORIA GALES 2:2 (2:1)
Staten Island, NY – September 16, 2007 – On a beautiful cool afternoon, Korabi made its debut in the Cosmopolitan Soccer League. It’s very unfortunate, after controlling the entire game, they could not hold on to win today’s game.
In the 14th minute Korabi took a 1-0 lead on a set play when Abdulla Begaj scored, converting a corner kick by Bekim Papraniku. As they kept on attacking, 20 minutes later, in the 34th minute newcomer Luigi Ferara placed a beautiful shot to the upper left corner of the net to increase the lead to 2-0. In the 45th minute, seconds before the end of the first half, Astoria were able to score and cut the deficit to 2-1.
The second half saw Korabi waste a slew of scoring opportunities only to concede a goal in the final minute of the game to ruin their debut.
We thank all those who showed up to support Korabi.
