White Reserves Fall Short in Quest for 3-peat League Title

May 25 2012 Published by under Whites

The White Reserves lost a tough one last night at Maycomb’s Dam Park next to Yankee Stadium against NYAC.  Much of the first half was played in monsoon conditions, and about 10 minutes in, after an blatant missed call by the referee, NYAC converted on a slippery corner to go up 1-0.  From that point on the match was a battle.  CPR probably held a bit more of the possession, but neither team created any true chances.

CPR was in command of the second half for the first 30 minutes.  Holding possession and probing for an opening in the NYAC defense.  The White Reserves best chance came on a cross to the back post by Archie that was headed down by Mike D. forcing the keeper into a difficult save.  As time grew short CPR pushed numbers forward, but unfortunately found themselves short at the back for two quick counter attacks that dashed CPR’s hopes of repeating as league champions for a 3rd consecutive season.  NYAC added a few more due to defensive errors and low numbers at the back for the final score of 5-0.

The White Reserves look forward to playing Mineola Portuguese Sunday on Randall’s Island at noon in the State Cup Semi Final.
