This year the EDSL recognized Shelley Mayer, NYS Assemblywoman, at the Champions Dinner Dance for all that she has done for the league over the years and we thank her for her continued support of the EDSL.
The Mount Kisco playoffs were completed with the final game between Kisco International and Deportivo Atlas. The Championship game was played on Sunday, October 26th and was the most exciting game of the 2014 season. Two equal teams were matched in the CHAMPIONSHIP game as it should be. The game was played with fair, fierce, physical and very exciting action with very minimal dissent. The match was back and forth, with Kisco International scoring the game tying goal in the 35th minute of second half and winning the Championship game on kicks from the penalty mark. It was an incredible game by both teams and congratulations must be given to both sides. Really well done!!!!
