Staten Island, NY – May 16, 2010 – As the season is coming to a close, Korabi has a good chance of taking 1st place in Metro One Division East. Four teams are in tight competition with Astoria Lions 23pts, Sporting Astoria 23pts, Mr. Dennehey’s FC 22pts, and Korabi 22pts.
Today’s match between Korabi and Mr. Dennehey’s will certainly be one of major importance. After coming off 2 straight wins, Korabi came out dominating the first half but missed several goal scoring opportunities. Korabi defense was too strong for Mr. Dennehey’s but they managed to get a shot that surely looked like it was about to go in until Korabi goalie “Ozzy” made a remarkable save to leave the first half goalless.
In the second half Korabi continued to press and had a chance to take the lead with a penalty award, no such luck for Korabi as the penalty was not converted. In the 70th minute of play, two Mr. Dennehey’s players were given red cards and this opened the door to relentless attacks by Korabi. Korabi was able to put two goals in by two assists from Manuel to goal scorer Abdulla Begai.
Korabi has made it closer to taking first place with 3 additional points and will face Astoria Lions in the last match of the league season. Korabi will first face New York Athletic Club in the NY State “D’Arpino Cup” in a semi-final match.
