Central Jersey Friendship Soccer League
Hazlet – KORABI Veterans 3-3 (1-2)
Goals: Kujtim Kaziu (2), Fisnik Daci
Hazlet, NJ – March 20, 2011 – Korabi Veterans start Spring with a tie.
The game looked promising from the start as Korabi took control of the game early with good midfield play and frequent attacks. Kujtim Kaziu scored in the 15th minute to give Korabi a 1-0 lead. 10 minutes later Hazlet were awarded a penalty but goalkeeper Faton Papraniku “Tonçe” made a brilliant save to preserve the lead. Kujtim Kaziu scored his second goal of the game at the half hour to give Korabi a 2-0 lead. Korabi kept attacking without much luck, hitting the post twice and the crossbar twice. Hazlet was awarded a second penalty right before halftime and converted to come within one goal.
In the second half the referee failed to award a penalty for Korabi on two occasions and this seemed to take the wind out of Korabi’s sail. In the 60th minute Hazlet scored to tie the score at 2-2. Fisnik Daci scored in the 75th minute to put Korabi ahead 3-2 but not for long as Hazlet was once again awarded a penalty and converted to tie the game at 3-3.
Considering the way Korabi played today, the result was very disappointing.
