Metro -1 Division East
KORABI – FC Partizani NY 3-2 (3-0)
Goals: Berat Islami, Azmir Dzemoski, Ilir Papraniku
Staten Island, NY – May 15, 2011 – What seemed to be a blowout in the first half turned out to be a very close game with Korabi barely holding on for the win.
Berat scored to give Korabi an early 1-0 lead. Half way through the first half Azmir scored to increase the lead to 2-0. Substitute, 15 year old, Ilir Papraniku scored on a solo effort to give Korabi a 3-0 lead going into halftime.
Considering the way Korabi played in the first half and a 3 goal lead, coach Rusty played reserves for the rest of the game. This almost backfired as Partizani scored two unanswered goals to get back into the game. Korabi kept composure and was able to hang on for the win.
Korabi finished at the top of the Metro 1 Division East and earned an optional promotion to the Second Division.
