BU10 Kosmos Poseidon Wins At City Cup
The BU10 Kosmos Poseidon team played their first City Cup tournament game defeating the Manhattan Kickers 2-1 in a very tight match. Goal keeping was spectacular with Sean Hennessy in the first half and Chris McElhinney in the second half making one great save after another. The defense had another stellar effort led by Luca D’Ambrosio, Bryan McGinn and Shawn O’Keefe. The midfielders, Thomas McGinn, Ryan Gibson, Kyle Duffy, Jason Moore and Timmy McEnroe, held the opponent at bay minimizing their possessions. The strikers, Corey Rodman and John Curte, kept the pressure on the opponent’s goalie with many good shots. Dean Hanrahan scored twice in this game with excellent foot work to get past the defense and finish with two goals.
The team displayed a great effort against a higher division opponent. The team also played a game this past Saturday against NY Stars Premiere White. This was a back and forth game with Poseidon defense holding the opposition down and not giving them any scoring chances. A breakthrough came towards the end of the first half with Thomas McGinn blasting a shot to the upper right hand corner of the net from just outside the 18.
The team kept the pressure on throughout the second half with Sean Hennessy scoring the second goal after gaining possession and lining up his shot into the upper left hand corner of the net. The Kosmos won 2-1. The team has had consistent defensive play and goalkeeping throughout the season.
