LIGA DE YONKERS KICKS OFF 2017 SEASON
Liga de Yonkers kicked off the 2017 season on May 14th. In the first game C.D. Alianza defeated a strong Atlas team 3-1. C.D. Alianza is one of the early favorites to compete for the top spot and played a well balanced game. Atlas had its opportunities but simply could not make the big play but proved they are should not be taken for granted. Juventus defeated Monarcas also by a score of 3-1. Another game with multiple opportunities for each team to score with Juventus taking advantage of mistakes. Monarcas has added some good players to their rosters and just needs a little more playing time together. The third game saw NY El Salvador tie NYC FC 1-1. Defense was the name of this game with each team pressing the other and limiting scoring opportunities. NY El Salvador was last years runner-up but NYC FC made some changes to their roster this year and showed they are ready to take on the world. The last game saw this year’s 2 new teams, Real Honduras and Deportivio Toluca play to a 2-2 tie. Action was fierce and the adrenaline was flowing. All the teams proved they are ready for an exciting and fun season.
