Gallo Trujillo, EDSL Board Member, was awarded the EDSL Referee of the Year plaque at this year’s Champions Dinner Dance
This year the EDSL recognized Shelley Mayer, NYS Assemblywoman, at the Champions Dinner Dance for all that she has done for the league over the years and we thank her for her continued support of the EDSL.
The Mount Kisco playoffs were completed with the final game between Kisco International and Deportivo Atlas. The Championship game was played on Sunday, October 26th and was the most exciting game of the 2014 season. Two equal teams were matched in the CHAMPIONSHIP game as it should be. The game was played with fair, fierce, physical and very exciting action with very minimal dissent. The match was back and forth, with Kisco International scoring the game tying goal in the 35th minute of second half and winning the Championship game on kicks from the penalty mark. It was an incredible game by both teams and congratulations must be given to both sides. Really well done!!!!
As of Sunday July 20th Westchester FC still holds the top spot by defeating Puma 1-0. Second and third place remain the same as Real Cotija and San Lorenzo played to a 2-2 tie. Real Sociedad defeated Atlas 1-0 and Honduras got the 3 points from the forfeiting Metapan team. Morazán beat Juventud 1-0 and Sport Peru did in Monarcas 1-0. The next few Sundays will really be interesting. Westchester probably needs to run the table to claim the first spot at the end of the season while only 3 points separate 2nd through 6th place. The league has never been this close and this competitive. This Sunday Real Cotija and Westchester FC play at 12:00noon and Honduras and Morazán have the 1:30PM game at Pelton. San Lorenzo drew a bye and El Carmen will pick up 3 points from the Forfeiting Metapan team. The top 4 places receive a bye into the second round of the tournament and everyone wants that extra week off to rest. It’s going to be a great finish!!!!
Westchester FC who made up a double header and took 3 points on a forfeit has now bumped to the top of the Leaders Board with 19 points. Real Cotija who had a bye this past week drops to second place. Westchester FC and Real Cotija are scheduled to meet in two weeks which possibly could determine this years winner. Of course there are a few other teams who also have their sights on the top spot. Morazán got back on the winning track by easily defeating Atlas 8-1. El Carmen proved they have to be taken seriously by edging out Honduras 2-1. Real Sociedad and Sport Peru played to a tough 0-0 draw so only got 1 point added to their totals.
Point totals are really close and everyone is fighting for those top 4 positions which will receive automatic byes into the second round of the playoffs. A simple win and 3 points could mean the difference in positioning for 6 teams.
