Metro 1 Champions
KORABI – CD Iberia 0:0 PK 6:5
Randalls Island, NY – June 3, 2012 – After having the best record in the Metro 1 Division three years in a row and losing in the final championship game the last two years, Korabi finally got over the hump and won in a penalty shootout after a 0:0 draw in regular time, besting CD Iberia 6:5 after 8 rounds of penalties.
It was a pretty even match in regulation time with both sides having a number of scoring opportunities but coming up empty. Albert Ruci had a stellar performance in anchoring the defense in preserving the shutout.
Once the game went to penalties it was “Ozzie Time” as the Korabi keeper saved not one, two, but three penalties propelling Korabi to Champions.
Congratulations to coach Rusty and all the players for all their efforts in this triumphant season.
