Some impressive scores here from the first day of the Cosmo League season!
- utterly destroyed NY Croatia 5-1. Christian Carrasquillo, Chris Wiggin, Nick Christmas and Papi (aka Jeph) all scored in the first half; Nick added his second after an hour, and Croatia got a consolation late on.
- strolled to a 3-0 win over NY Croatia.
Rovers o30 Premier
- beat 2013 league champs Manhattan Kickers Premier by three goals to two! Rovers scorers were Shaka Hinds and Mike Butler (2).
Rovers o30 Old Boys
- lost by the same 3-2 score to Manhattan Celtic Legends. Heartbreakingly for Sheero’s boys, they came from 2-0 down to tie 2-2 before losing by the odd goal. Guillaume de Sampigny and Josh Whitford scored for the Rovers.
- lost 1-0 in a very tight game with AO Brooklyn, headed by former Rover Chris Vega (a key man in the squad that originally took us into D1). A draw would have been a fair result, we hit the bar and controlled much of the game, but they scored on a breakaway goal despite a great last-ditch tackle from Tim Hattori. Great Thirds debut from o30 transfer Tim and also from new boys Joaco, Dave, and Matt.
