This past Friday The Eastern District Soccer League held its Annual Champions Dinner Dance at the Ukranians Center in Yonkers. It was a night to honor all of our Champions from last season. It was also an opportunity for all of our divisoins to come together to celebrate our love for soccer. The event takes many months of planning and our dedicated Board of Directors under the leadership of our President Peter Pinori did a wonderful job in putting this night together. We should also thank all of our divisions and their teams for doing an excellent job in representing in numbers. With approximately 200 guests in attendance the hall was filled and the dancefloor was packed! In attendance were a number of special guests including State Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer. Representative Mayer has been a dedicated supporter of soccer for many years and friend to the EDSL as it has grown through the years. With her support the EDSL has been allowed to thrive in Westchester County and we can not thank her enough for all of the support that she has given to our league. There were many champions honored on Friday night, however, one team earned the title of Team of the Year. Real Sociedad of Liga de Yonkers took home three trophies on the night! it was a year to remember for Real Sociedad and one that will be tough to repeat. Real Sociedad were able to win the Liga de Yonkers Championship, An EDSL Division Championship and The EDSL Tournament of Champions all in one year! They were also a finalist in the Sal Rapaglia State Premier Cup. Congratulations to Real Sociedad and to all of our champions from last year.

The Liga de Yonkers completed it’s regular season play on August 10th but their are 2 make-up games to play. Those 2 make-up games affect the entire standings board so Buckle Up for some showdowns.

On Sunday Westchester FC playing short handed lost to Sport Peru 6-3 and left the door open for Real Cotijia to win their make up game next week and finish in first place .El Carmen forfeited to Monarcas. The fifteen minute forfeit time wasn’t enough time for them to field a team and could now cost them one of the Playoff Byes. Honduras also lost to Puma 3-0 and also could be out of the running for a Playoff Bye. Pumas win and a possible win next week against San Lorenzo could catapult them up the standings ladder. San Lorenzo is looking forward to the match up and took care of business this week defeating Atlas 2-0. Real Sociedad looks to finish in third place by defeating Morazán 3-2. Cotijia easily defeated Juventud 5-1 and will take on Honduras next week with hopes of finishing 1st overall.

Next week in the last 2 make-up games San Lorenzo takes on Puma at 10:00 and Cotijia takes on Honduras at 11:30 for all the marbles. It shows great parody in the league when it comes down to the last game to complete the standings.

All the teams have played hard and are now looking forward to the playoffs.


After this Sundays results, July 27th, the positions in the standings are still too close to call!. Everyone brought there “A” game. In the first game Real Cotija and Westchester played to a 1-1 tie. The game was close and tight the whole way just what we expected from these 2 teams. Honduras then defeated Morazan 2-1 moving up to third place while Morazán fell to 7th. Sport Peru defeated an always tough Puma team 2-1 while Juventud and top rated Real Sociedad tied 0-0. Monarcas got there second win of the season hanging on to beat Atlas 2-1.

Just 2 weeks remain in the regular season and then there are 3 make-up games which need to be played. It will come down to those make-up games to determine final standings and the top 4 spots which receive first round byes.
