Czechoslovakia Advance in Cup
Czechoslovakia advances to the EDSL Steve Howanky Cup by winning in PK’s over a very strong African Youth Academy. The African team moved ahead 1-0 and kept this score until the end of the first half. Czecholsovakia had 3 chances to even the score but could not find the equalizer.
The Czechs continued to pressure forward and eventually were able to tie the game in the second half capitalizing on a rebound from a free kick outside the PK area. AYA fought back and recaptured the lead at 2-1 and was winning rught up until 5 minutes to full time when the Czechs again tied the game! At the end of regulation the score was 2-2. This well-played game was, however, going to be decided by penalty kicks. The Czechs converted on all 5 kicks while the African team missed one of their attempts and Czechoslovakia is now moving on to the Final to face San Onofre.
Excellent Officiating done by the referee crew
The Czech will play the final next week vs San Onofre who had beat the Westchester CF last week on the other semifinal. The game will be at Tibbets park #3 at 10am 6/8/14. Good luck to both teams!
