Manalapan, NJ – October 24, 2010 – The Korabi Veterans are a finesse side and like the artificial turf so they get good ball control and this was very evident in todays game.
A strong start for Korabi, creating a number of scoring opportunities in the opening minutes of the game, but failing to get the ball in the net until the 20th minute when Timmy broke the ice, scoring the first of his three goals, a natural hat-trick. Korabi got a bit complacent in the next 15-20 minutes, missing excellent scoring chances, and it came back to hurt them as Manalapan scored two unanswered goals to take a 2-1 lead into the halftime break.
Korabi regained its composure after the halftime break and continued playing well as it had done at the start of the game and it was not long before Timmy scored the equalizer. Timmy completed his hat-trick after he tapped in a pass from Musa “Çaki” Gjeli, who took the ball from the midfield and dribbled his way to the goalmouth and gifted Timmy with the goal. The final goal of the game was a beauty with Zeqo heading in an Adem Klloboçishta corner kick into the top left corner of the net.
