NY SALAMINA U-10 BOYS WIN CHAMPIONSHIP

It came down to the last match of the season! The U-10 Salamina Strikers needed a victory or a tie to guarantee themselves the title! Salamina was 3 points clear of the second place team in the standings, British Lions. The young Strikers defeated the Lions 1-0 back in May with a late goal therefore giving Nikola Dokic's team the confidence to march and hope for the Championship in the New York City Soccer League.

Their opponent last Saturday at Murray Park was the feisty green shirts of Veras United who gave Salamina all they can handle in such a crucial match. Salamina started the game with two key absences in the line-up. Defender Hal Cogalmis and midfielder Daniel Gomez were not available to play due to injuries but Nikola Dokic reached into his bench and took care of business. Din Jeyna(right fullack) and Elvin Mersinovic(central midfield) filled in nicely along with regular stand outs David Gallego in goal, Mouts Cogalmis (sweeper), Edward Garcia (fullback), Rasvan Ionescu (forward), Ryan Guerbi (central/right midfield) and Jesse Lemus (forward). Thomas Lelan, Sammy Lukolic, Yazid and Nermin Velovic comprised a solid bench of the young strikers that pretty much knew that the championship was at stake. Salamina played exceptional defensive soccer and created numerous opportunities with quick counter attacks. Jesse Lemus had at least five classic opportunities to score in the second half. The Strikers' efforts were finally rewarded 10 minutes before time when Rasvan Ionescu threaded the net with a strong volley after a rebound save from the opposing goalie and gave Salamina the glorious victory!

League commissioner, Mr. Rudolph Sanchez was at the game to present the Championship Trophy to the Salamina U-10/11 Strikers. All the players and Coach Nikola Dokic received well deserved championship medals as the boys took their lap of glory around the field! "We are ecstatic about our Strikers" said Club President Andrew Parperides after the game! "Congratulations to all of our players, our Head Coach Nikola Dokic and all of our supporters for a great season!

We are very grateful to see that our Youth Program is very successful and these young players have a great future in Soccer" he added.

U-19 REDS TIE BROOKLYN PATRIOTS AT PARADE GROUNDS 3-3 IN CJSL OPENER

The NY Salamina Reds U-19 squad has also arrived! The Reds traveled to Brooklyn last Sunday afternoon for the season opener of the Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League. Salamina opposed the Brooklyn Patriots Manchester U-19 team. The Reds fell behind on the score early but managed to keep their composure and strike back with two first half goals from Andres Chung and Martin Michaels.

Coach Guillermo shifted Christian Ortiz to that position and add Hassan Farid to the midfield left position. Manchester tied the score in the 67' minute on a misclearance and took the lead on the 73' on a quick counter attack.

Newcomers Amr Bouach and Sonam Serpa played exceptional well for the Reds.

"We showed that we can play against one of the better teams in the League" commented Head Coach Guillermo Arbelaez. He also added that the young Reds squad will get stronger as the season progresses.

REDS CONTINUE SLIDE WITH 9-8 LOSS TO PL NY

The Reds continued their NYSSL campaign with a new loss, this time to the Polish Ukrainians. Salamina with an early 2-0 lead could not stop the fury of the Polish team that came back with four consecutive goals. Nikola Dokic and Guillermo were the only regulars in the line-up as the Reds looked to the younger players to overcome the absences.

"We needed more than the steady goaltending" added Coach Andrew Parperides. Key absences from Camacho, Victor Kotinsky and Phil Penns did not help the situation. A late minute goal by Dokic cut the lead to 9-8 but a post by Guillermo found the Reds a goal short.

REDS DROP A CLOSE ONE TO ISSC

The Reds dropped a game last Sunday night that was accompanied by plenty of defensive errors. Although the Reds jumped ahead in the score 1-0 with Victor Kotinsky's follow through shot on the 28', apparently it was not enough to overcome of what was to follow.

The Reds came to the game with three key absences: Nikola Dokic (father passed away), Teddy Maciek(sore ankle), and Phil Penz (red card). On the 44' Costas Sapountzis in his attempt to clear the ball, gets called for a handball inside the box. The penalty tied the game of ISSC at 1-1 at halftime.

In the second half, the Reds had three classic opportunities to go ahead 2-1. In the 64' Costas Sapountzis on a good give and go finds himself real close only to lift the ball over the horizontal. On the 73' Danny Stoker from the edge of the box takes a strong shot that was deflected to a corner by an ISSC defender. On the 81' Odysseas Rondos on a rebound drives the ball into the horizontal post. ISSC on a free kick stole the three points as a header following the cross by Constantine (former Salamina player) found the corner of the net on the 88'.

LINE-UP: Leandro, C.Sapountzis, Kotinsky, J. Sapountzis, (Koulakis), Camacho, Guillermo, Delle, (H.Rondos), Stoker, (O.Rondos), Franklin, Guido, (Enis) Christian.
