BW Gottschee – KORABI 1-1 (Gottschee wins 2-1 in penalties)
Goal: Albert Ruci
Yonkers, NY – June 13, 2010 – What a missed opportunity, conceding a goal in extra time.
Korabi came into this game very optimistic and it showed, as Albert Ruci scored in the 4th minute for a 1-0 lead. Korabi played well throughout the first half but with poor finishing and it kept their opponent in the game and took a one goal lead into halftime.
During halftime coach Rusty warned the players that poor finishing can come back to haunt them, and as it turned out, it did.
Korabi continued playing well in the second half but unable to score. BW Gottschee seemed to take over the game the last 15-20 minutes, dominating in midfield and attacking, but the Korabi defense were able to contain until the 94th minute.
It seemed that the referee wrongfully awarded a throw in to BW Gottschee instead of Korabi, which would have definitely ended the game since there was only 20 seconds remaining in the game. With their final possession BW Gottschee was able to score and tie the game to send it to a penalty shoot-out.
Korabi only converted 1 penalty and BW Gottschee converted 2.
Congratulations to both teams.
