The Port Chester Football League has concluded its 26th version with a hotly contested match from the kickoff between Deportivo Suchi and United.
Deportivo Suchi will open the scoring in the 38th minute of the first half. Mike Dixon forces a play in the small area with the two central defenders and finds a loose ball to define before the goalkeeper’s vain attempt.
In the 44th minute of the 1st half Carlos Rabanal disputes an aerial ball in the small area before the untimely departure of Omar Hernandez, United goalkeeper; Carlos combs the ball that aguishly enters the goal to decree Deportivo Suchi’s second goal .
With a 2-0 against, United enters the field determined to turn the game around as it has done on other occasions. In the 12th minute, in a play where Santiago Salvador enters the small box with a dominated ball, he is fouled and knocked to the ground, the referee decrees the penalty kick. Martin Alvarez of United is in charge of the execution. Martin adds one more to his goal collection for a total of 12.
In the 38th minute, United’s # 23 Silva Lujan receives a red card for a violent conduct, Santiago Salvador angrily complains, verbally assaulting the referee and is also sent off. Then Raymundo Santiago is also expelled for the same reason, these steps are followed by the assistant coach Rafael and then the rest of the United bench. The Referee gives them time for these expelled to leave the field of play, by refusing to do so the referee determines the culmination of the game, thus enabling the passage to the new champion.
Congratulations DEPORTIVO SUCHI…!

The EDSL has two new Hall of Famers, Elias Tsekerides amd August Cambria were awarded with the maximum distinction that ENYSSA could provide.
August Cambria started working part time for the Yonkers Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation (YDPRC) in 1974. Upon graduation from Southern Connect State College, with a degree in Recreation and Leisure Management he started work for the YDPRC as a CETA employee and was then hired in 1979 as a Recreation Supervisor.

In 1992 he was promoted to Director of Recreation and took a personal interest in the Youth Soccer programming overseeing the in-house programs of all the clubs and organizing, scheduling and monitoring over 60+ teams playing at 22 field’s city wide. He also was a main factor in starting “Yonkers United”, the overall city’s youth traveling soccer program. For Yonkers United he ran an annual Columbus Day Tournament which attracted 32 teams from the tristate area. This tournament grew from the original 32 teams to over 250 teams.

They were not affiliated with any State or Local Organization. During his years of involvement in soccer Mr. Cambria had the pleasure meeting Mr. Peter Pinori who was President of the Eastern District Soccer League. With Mr. Pinori’s guidance and assistance Liga de Yonkers, consisting of 20 teams, was formed in 2003 under the auspices of The Eastern District Soccer League and Eastern New York State Soccer Association. Mr. Cambria was promoted to Commissioner in 2008 but still helped run, schedule and oversee Liga De Yonkers.
