Cosmopolitan Soccer League Metro-1
KORABI Bears – Lindenhurst 7-0 (3-0)
Goals: Bekim Papraniku, Abdulla Begai, Adam Hussein, Lirim Begai 2, Felipe, Sherif Hussein
Staten Island, NY – October 18, 2009 – First round opponent Lindenhurst of the Long Island Soccer League seemed to be no match for Korabi as is evident from the final score that could have been even higher.
Korabi got on the score board early with Bejim Papraniku scoring on a header from a corner kick in the 5th minute. Abdulla Begai scored in the 20th minute to increase the lead to two. In the 40th minute Adam Hussein was brought down in the box and he converted the penalty kick for a 3-0 lead into halftime.
The frustrated visitors suffered even more in second half with Lirim Begaj scoring on a beautiful 30 yard shot in the 55th minute. This seemed to be a sign for coach Rusty Papraniku to give some playing time to reserves and rest some of the starters. Felipe hit the crossbar twice and finally scored in the 65th minute for a 5-0 lead. Lirim scored his second goal in the 75th minute and Sherif Hussein closed the scoring with a goal in the 85th minute.
