On Sunday, The Kickers first team lost in disappointing fashion to Central Park Rangers. Despite a strong roster, the Kickers lacked an energy going forward and created little to no offense. Central Park Rangers scored once in the first half on a defensive miscommunication, and again in the second half during a scramble in the box, for a final score of 2-0.
Two days later, the Kickers first team traveled to Tibbitts Park in Yonkers to face Lansdowne Bhoys in the rain for a 3rd consecutive game. Lansdowne found space all over the field, amassing a 4-0 lead by halftime and converting on nearly every opportunity. The Kickers would fight back in a much closer contested second half, even sneaking forward for a goal of their own, but would ultimately fall 6-1 to the league leaders.
The Kickers reserves suffered a demoralizing 4-0 loss due to lack of intensity, seemingly having lost their style of play they had developed throughout the Fall season.
In the 5th minute, CPR would pounce on the ball at the top of the penalty area and strike one by FitzGerald for the 1-nil lead. That lead was short lived when (MVP) Ardian Hasko took the pass from Aaron Vennard and put it away for the early equalizer. 10 minutes later, Khouri Mullings (Honorable Mention) found Ardian for his second score of day. But CPR would find some daylight of their own just inside the penalty area to bring the match even once again (30th minute). Just before half-time, the silky combination play of Seamus Kelly to Khouri Mullings and the square ball to Alex Petrovic for what would be the game winner (35th min), ended the scoring at half-time.
Filip Loncar opened the scoring in the second half, putting one away from the Nick Bill throw-in (50th min). Seamus Kelly would get one of his own in the 55th minute from Alex Petrovic. Mike Zorborski put one past the CPR goaltender from Filip Loncar in the 60th minute. Khouri Mullings would finish the scoring on the day with two more goals (70th & 80th) both assists from Ardian Hasko. The Kickers O-30 Premier would cruise to the final 8-2 score.
Legends continue to top their Division despite losing games, this one being 4th in the negative streak. Barely fielding a starting 11, Legends took the lead from a Jesse Vozick header. Celtics Masters came back with a top right corner strike, and then countered successfully to go 2-1 up at half-time. Without any subs, Legends struggled to make much headway, and conceded another in an unlucky corner. Final score 3-1 to the opponents.
