CD Alianza wins Liga de Yonkers Championship
Liga de Yonkers Championship week was held this Sunday, September 17th at Pelton Field.
In the consolation game NY El Salvador defeated Atals 3-1 to finish in third place. The game was close till the end of the second half when NY El Salvador scored there third goal to put the game out of reach.
In the Championship game Real Honduras and CD Alianza played to a 1-1 tie at end of regulation. CD Alainza scored their goal on a controversial penalty call in the box which lead to a penality kick. Although the call seemed questionable, it is believed the official made the right call.
During penaillty kicks Real Honduras missed their last kick and CD Alianza just had to make their final kick for the victoy, but the Real Honduras goalie had other ideas and made a great save on Alianza’s last kick to continue the penalty kicks. Penality kicks continued until the D Alianza goalie made a great save and then took the final kick to CD Alianza the championship.
Its a shame that in this game between two great and evenly matched teams their has to be loser but Congratulations to CD Alianza.
Congratulatons to all 4 teams in the finals for great seasons and playoffs.
