Black Eagles won the Steve Howansky EDSL Cup final today by defeating Oranje 1777 by the score of 3-0.
Black Eagles scored in the 6th minute of the first half when they received a PK for a foul in the Penalty area which the Oranje player being the last man received a straight Red card.
Oranje even though were playing a man short for over 85 minutes did have many opportunities to score and hit the cross bar on 2 separate occasions.
Both team goalies made many saves keeping their team in the game.
Congratulation to our new team Oranje on making 2 separate finals (Playoff and Steve Howansky Open Cup) and by coming in 2nd at our regular championship season.
I believe that if the team could have counted on a roster of 14 players ready to play in each game for sure they would have won one or our competitions.
Coach/Manager Afrin Lajqi proudly responded " I would like to thank you(Peter) and the Eastern District League for allowing us to put our team in this state league. We look forward to playing again this upcoming September. It was a up and down battle but it was lots of fun. In the last five games we only lost one game. I think it’s a great accomplishment for our first season. When we field a full squad I think it’s very promising but it’s always who shows up on Sunday’s". “Thank you so much”
CONGRATULATIONS to our new team Black Eagles on winning the EDSL Open Steve Howansky 2017 Cup.
