Borgetto FC Lead Division 1 After Hectic Week 15 & 16

Sunday, March 27
New York Athletic Club vs Manhattan Kickers (1-1)
As of now, New York Athletic Club and Manhattan Kickers played to a 1-1 draw on Travers Island. With ten minutes to play, NYAC’s only registered coach received a red card for dissent against the referee. The game was called from that point and league arbitration is still being decided.

Stats from this game will not count. However, the original scoring saw Athletic Club take the lead in the first 25 minutes off a Manhattan defensive error. Midway through the first half Mustafa Mohamandi tied the game, 1-1.

New York Shamrock SC vs Hoboken FC 1912 (1-0)
Chris Uy helped defending Division 1 champions New York Shamrocks SC keep their narrow league hopes alive. His goal pushed the Rocks to a 1-0 win over fellow title chasers Hoboken FC 1912.

“Much needed win today to retain our small chance of the title, in pretty miserable conditions at that,” said captain Darren Coleman. “The lads did the hard work against the wind in the first half, which gave us the platform to kick on in the second half.”

Kurt Cameron assisted Uy on the goal. Shamrock’s goalkeeper Alex Heston saved the three points at the end. The New Jersey side nearly equalized in the final minutes before Herston made an incredible save.

“We shouldn’t underplay how big of a result that could turn out to be,” Coleman said. “We go again next week!”

FC Sandžak vs Zum Schneider FC 03 II (0-1)

Hoboken FC 1912 vs Manhattan Kickers (2-1)
No goal scorers reported by New York Shamrock SC
A fast first half saw all the goals between Hoboken FC 1912 and Manhattan Kickers. The home side grind-ed out a win, 2-1, and avoided dropping points in what would have been an upset.

Hoboken took the lead in the 12th minute when Dante Petrocelli pressured the goalkeeper and took advantage of him coming off his line to challenge. He crossed to Dimitri Mataras who finished with a nice volley into the back of the net. The Kickers tied the game in the 35th when Brett Rojas capitalized off a keeper error of his own, but it did not last. Hoboken re-took the lead in the 40th when Petrocelli played a cross from the right to Camilo Rosero. He passed back and forth with Mataras before the latter chipped the ball into the net for the winning goal.


New York Shamrock SC vs Zum Schneider FC 03 II (3-0)
No goal scorers reported by New York Shamrock SC
New York Shamrock SC kept its Division 1 title hopes alive with a strong second half against Zum Schneider FC 03 II. Three unanswered goals kept the defending champions in fourth place and only two games behind first.
