KORABI JUNIORS – SILVER LAKE 3:0 (2:0)
Staten Island, NY – November 4, 2007 – Korabi Juniors made its debut in the Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League U-19 and won its inaugural game very convincingly, beating Silver Lake 3-0.
Korabi had the upper hand from the start, showing excellent ball control and crisp passing in creating many scoring opportunities. Initially it seemed that the goals were not going to come easy as Korabi hit the crossbar twice until the 35th minute when Alban Zekaj was taken down by a Silver Lake defender in the penalty area and Korabi was awarded a penalty. Berat Islami, the team captain, was able to covert for a 1-0 lead. As Korabi kept on the attack, just 2 minutes later Alban Zekaj put a shot past a defenseless opposing keeper to increase the lead to 2-0.
Korabi continued to play well in the second half, kept on attacking with cautious defending and various substitutions made. In the 80th minute Korabi was able to increase their lead to 3-0 when Joseph Romero was able to convert a pass from the midfield and finish the scoring for the day.
Judging by this game, this young team will have a very successful year.
We would like to thank all of the parents and friends for supporting Korabi.
