FDNY Soccer Team who play as College Point Flames in the LISFL

9/25/16 - This week in the LISFL saw another edition of the Glen Cove Avellino vs Port Jefferson rivalry that has been a highlight of the league in recent years. Port Jefferson took an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Gerassimos "Mackie" Magoulas. Glen Cove responded as expected with three straight goals from Tyler De La Torre, who scored in his third straight game and leads Division 1 in scoring with 6 on the season.

Port Jefferson have been known for their resiliency throughout the years and Sunday's game was no different. With about 15 minutes left in the game, goals by Elysee Vilsaint and Michael Celentano tied the game at 3-3, which ultimately was the final score. Both teams came away with a valuable point, but not the 3 points that they both were looking for.

Port Jefferson manager Craig Korobow gave this account of the Reserve game between Port Jefferson and Glen Cove Avellino, "Corey Desmond made 11 saves, keeping Port Jeff in the game as Glen Cove peppered Port Jeff’s net with quality chances. Port Jeff played hard and didn’t quit in this very physical match. Down 2-0, Port Jeff stormed back with two goals by Zanetti Alberick. Ultimately, Glen Cove broke the game open with 3 goals in the second half. Port Jeff would later pull to within 5-3 when Jacob Garcia converted a PK, but that was the last of the scoring, and Glen Cove came away with the 3 points." Chris Garcia had a hat trick for Glen Cove in the game. Emanuel Gamez and Eduardo Motecer also scored for Glen Cove.
