Brooklyn Bound 1 vs Metro Stars 2
Beyond FC 1 vs NYC Metro Stars 4
METRO STAR EXPRESS NYC Metro Stars kept their streak going with a 4-1 romp over Beyond FC in Metro Two for their 11th consecutive victory of the season. “A real tough game,” said Metro Stars coach Edson Calle. “First half 0-0 but in the second half we put more pressure and we got the results.” Skipper Rodolfo Oliveira scored from a free kick [55th], Mamadou Diombera [60th] added a second, Landry Sanon [78th] the third and Cristhian Sabando [88th] the fourth. The club [11-5, 33] whose losses came in its first five games, are now assured of finishing second behind runaway West champs BW Gottschee.
NYC Metro Stars 2 vs BW Gottschee 1
GOTTSCHEE FIRST Brazilian Rodolfo Oliveira’s 76th minute free kick condemned newly crowned Metro Two West BW Gottschee to a 2-1 defeat to NYC Metro Stars – their first ever since their reincarnation in the CSL two seasons ago. Gottschee captain Dion Amvrosiatos’ penalty before the interval had canceled out Ecuadorian Guisseppe Romero’s opener [19th] for Metro Stars. But Oliveira’s Brazilian skills decided a tough match in the hosts’ favor. “It was [Geoffrey] Chaucer who said all good things must come to an end and our 33 game undefeated streak in the league was a pretty good run,” noted a philosophical John Ryder, evoking the English poet of the Middle Ages. “What an amazing game,” gushed the victorious Edison Calle, whose sizzling side — unbeaten this year – stayed a point behind second place Beyond FC [10-1-5, 31], ahead of their encounter this Sunday.
NYC Metro Stars defeated Williamsburg International 5-1 on Sunday in Cosmopolitan Soccer League Metro 2 West action at the Verrazano Back Grass Fields.
On a field that could have been a practical joke, full of hills and valleys, potential ankle injuries, and plenty of dandelions, NYC Metro Stars and Williamsburg International were forced to kick-off in less than ideal conditions.
As has been the case over the past three matches, the Doylies put in a dominant effort in the first half, but were unable to reap the rewards. As the Metro Stars struggled with odd bounces on the unfamiliar surface, Williamsburg were first to every loose ball and turned their takeaways into chances. Augustus Esgro was just behind a ball that he could have nodded into an open net.
Two calls from the referee defined the first 45 minutes. Jonathan Tucker had the ball in the net off a Charles von Rosenberg corner, but the goal was waved off for a foul. Moments later Lukasz Mosakowski again had the ball in net but was whistled for a questionable offside.
Other chances went by the wayside as von Rosenberg connected well with an Esgro cross only to see his effort drift wide left. Yann Micuta stretched to connect with a loose ball on the six-yard box but his effort was deflected wide right. The Doylies were truly unfortunate not to be up by at least a couple of goals at the break. However, they went into half time still tied at 0-0.
For the second week in a row, Williamsburg came out flat to start the second half. On the first opportunity of the half, goal keeper Benjamin Hanbury-Aggs made a great save but then prevented the Metro Stars attacker from getting up and was whistled for a penalty kick. The Metro Stars Mamadou Diombera stepped up and sent his effort well above the bar, letting the Doylies off the hook.
The Metro Stars doubled down on their strategy of hitting the ball over the top to their speedy forwards. Eventually the tactic began to wear down the Doylies defense. Only moments after the missed penalty kick, the Metro Stars took advantage of a half-chance down the right flank, with striker Farouk Dondja finishing from a tight angle, through the legs of Hanbury-Aggs. They doubled their lead on a similar play, as Diombera put his penalty miss behind him, this time finishing far post, again from a very tight angle on the end line.
An exhausted back line was unable to keep up with the athletic Metro Stars forwards as they continued to race on to the end of long balls and it wasn’t long before another breakaway allowed Diombera to chip Hanbury-Aggs for a brace. Jonathan Robles connected well on a rebound off another excellent Hanbury-Aggs save, when no defender reacted to the loose ball, to make it 4-0.
Williamsburg finally got their goal, though it was little more than a consolation, when von Rosenberg hit a long free kick to the top of the 18-yard box. Yann Micuta met the ball in the air, nodding across to Richard Clements who volleyed home. It was a nice goal and well earned from Micuta and Clements who had put the Metro Stars under pressure throughout the first half.
The Metro Stars added insult to injury when Roger Delgado put pressure on center backs Gaurav Hingorani and Benjamin Bryden. Hingorani got a fine tackle in, knocking the ball off Delgado’s shin and back to Hanbury-Aggs. Unfortunately for the Doylies the ball took an awful bounce and launched straight over Hanbury-Aggs’ left foot as he attempted to clear.
Williamsburg has a reprieve this weekend as their opponent SS Lazio has withdrawn from the league, forfeiting all of their matches. With two matches remaining against their two closest neighbors in the table, the Doylies are still looking to put together that complete performance that will translate into 3 points.
ENYSSA STATE CUP SEMIFINAL
Lansdowne Bhoys fc 2 vs NYC Metro Stars 1
STRUMPF CUP A second Lansdowne team is through to a State Cup. The Bhoys’ Metro Div. One side came from behind to pip NYC Metro Stars 2-1 and book a date in the Strumpf Cup final with Mr. Dennehy’s. Metro Stars ace Mamadou Diombera had the Edison Calle-drilled side ahead against Lansdowne until the last 10 minutes. That’s when Oswaldo Valencia and Dion Norney connected to secure a first ever cup final appearance for Lansdowne’s de facto third side. Their first XI is already in the Manning Cup final against Shamrock. The Dennehy’s-Williamsburg clash ended 1-1. Kevin Ruppel set up Mark Gallagher for the latter and Andres Sole was on target for Dennehy’s, who went on to win 5-4 on penalties.
NYC METRO STARS 9 VS MISSILE FC NJ 1
In-form NYC Metro Stars shellacked Missile 9-1 in the Strumpf Cup to reach their first ever State cup semi-final.
SHINING STARS In-form NYC Metro Stars shellacked Missile 9-1 in the Strumpf Cup to reach their first ever State cup semi-final. Boss Edison Calle’s cosmopolitan side was on song once again with Brazilian-born captain Rodolfo Oliveira hitting a hat trick. Malian forward Mamadou Diombera added a brace, while Peruvian Glen Basurto opened his Metro Stars account. There was also one goal apiece for Tassere Kindo from Burkina Faso, Togolese Farouk Dondja and another newcomer from Burkina Faso Landry Sanon. “Basically Africa and South America were present and will be [available] in the semifinals,” remarked Calle. That will be against Lansdowne Bhoys Metro, semi-finalists last December with a 5-3 romp over BW Gottschee.
Barnstonworth Rovers 2 vs NYC Metro Stars 3
RISING STARS NYC Metro Stars’ eighth straight win, 3-2 over Barnstonworth Rovers at Bushwick Inlet, elevated Edison Calle’s side into third place Metro Two West, a point behind Beyond FC. ‘An epic game,’ is how Calle described it. It started with Mamadou Diombera connecting in the fourth minute, Guisseppe Romero [69th] notching the second and new Togolese signing Farouk Dondja nicking it [89th]. “I’m really proud of my players. We secure third place with an important victory over Barnstonworth Rovers,” enthused Called.
SS LAZIO 0 VS NYC METRO STARS 3
NYC METRO STARS 2 VS HOMETMEN OF NY 0 FIRST VICTORY 2017.

Stars [6-5, 18] are eight points off the pace in Metro Two West.

ROLLING STARS NYC Metro Stars’ fifth straight win in all competitions put them in the quarterfinals of the Strumpf Cup. Guisseppe Romero [3rd], Rodolfo Oliveira from a free kick [25th], and superstar Mamadou Diombera [50th, 76th] were on target in a 4-2 romp over New York United. Stars meet fellow CSL Metro II side Missile FC in the last eight, with the winners on a collision course with Lansdowne.
WILLIAMSBURG INTERNATIONAL 1 VS METRO STARS 4
STARBURST Also at Bushwick Inlet, NYC Metro Stars overwhelmed Williamsburg II 4-1. New Malian star Mamadou Diombera produced a hat trick [15th, 35th, 56th] with Ecuadorian Juan Cungachi [81st] sealing it. Oscar Tiné, from an AJ Bello pass, scored for Williamsburg. “Another big victory for us away over a very difficult opponent,” said Edison Calle.
METRO STARS 7 VS LAZIO 2
NYC STREAK There was also a third consecutive victory for Edison Calle’s NYC Metro Stars who hammered SS Lazio 7-2. “Big victory for [us] with goals by Rodolfo Oliveira [5th], Guisseppe Romero [10th, 25th], Mamadou Diombera [20th, 55th], Juan Cungachi [67th] and Jonathan Coronel [75th],” noted Calle.
METRO STARS 8 VS DEPORTIVO SOCIEDADE 0
STARS SHINE Winless in their first five fixtures in Metro Two, NYC made it two victories on the trot with an 8-0 annihilation of Deportive Sociedade on Randalls. Rodolfo Oliveira [5th], Giusseppe Romero [17th, 31st], Cristian Sabando [25th], Mamadou Diombera [41st, 54th], goalie Jerry Sabando [60th] from the penalty spot and Tassere Kindo [75th] scripted the win. “I hope we continue like this,” said Edison Calle. “We played in heavy rain but we handled the situation.”
NYC Metro Stars 4 vs Brooklyn Bound sc 1
STAR PERFORMANCE Six weeks into the season and with a 0-5 record going into the match, NYC Metro Stars finally came good, mauling Brooklyn Bound 4-1 on Randalls Island for their first league win of the fall. “Looks like we are back on track after winning in the State cup and now in the league,” remarked coach Edison Calle. The goals were by the Brazilian Rodolfo Oliveira [15th pen., 39th], Ecuadorian Guisseppe Romero [25th], and a spectacular long range effort by Colombian native Edwin Ramirez [70th] from almost the halfway line.
South Jamaica Port 1 vs NYC Metro Stars 5
NY Homenetmen vs NYC Metro Stars
WESTERN FRONT Larry Debono, Ali Reza, Anish Malpani and Navrun Jacob connected for perfect Beyond FC who lead Metro Two West on goal differential after a 4-2 result over NYC Metro Stars. Mamadou Diambera [46th] and the Colombian Edwin Ramirez [50th] briefly hauled Metro Stars back after a 2-0 deficit. “Losing 2-0 in the first half was not good. We tied the game 10 minutes into the second half but that was not enough,” lamented Edison Calle.
Also two points off the pace in Metro Two is Flushing FC. They got a brace from co-captain Chris Hain Prada in a 2-1 decision over NYC Metro Stars at Flushing Meadow. Prada’s first [11th] was a penalty and the second [22nd] from an Ed Krupski throw-in. “Metro Stars [went on] the offensive in the second half and were able to pull one back around the 65th minute. But FFC’s defense stood strong and held on for the win,” said FFC vice president Ryan Wiedman. Mamadou Diambera scored for Metro Stars.
GOTCHA Brandon Silva’s “smash and grab” job against NYC Metro Stars saw BW Gottschee nick a 3-2 decision on Randalls Island. Silva had given his side an early lead from a swerving free kick. However, Mamadou Diambera [31st] and Edwin Narvaez [43rd] struck back for Metro Stars before the interval. “A change of ends brought a change of luck and wind,” said Gottschee’s John Ryding. “Edgar Carpo tied up the game and it looked like the teams were going to get a point apiece, when Silva pulled a smash and grab with an 89th minute goal.”

SAUNDERS CUP Cameroonian goalie Jires Feudjio was the hero in NYC Metro Stars’ 5-4 penalty victory over fellow CSL Metro II side Brishna in the Saunders Cup final. Feudjio saved Metro Stars in regulation time with a penalty stop against Gurash Paiman to keep the match scoreless. It ended that way after 90 minutes and in the ensuing shoot-out, Feudjio pulled off another save, from Najib Ullah this time, while Giuseppe Romero, Elmer Batres, Cesar Lima, Frederick Mokolo and Alexi Espin tallied to clinch it for Edson Calle’s side. Mohammad Basir Mashriqi, Hamidullah Pople , Rafi Mashriqi and Mohammad Yosef Mashriqi connected for Brishna. “It was a fantastic final with opportunities for both teams to get the victory but we were more mentally and physically prepared,” said Calle. “And also, we were celebrating the 18th anniversary of NYC Metro Stars in New York. What a celebration!”
Edison Calle’s cosmopolitan talent came up big for NYC Metro Stars in a 5-2 romp over Beyond FC Metro at Laurel Hill Park in New Jersey. Ecuadorian Guiseppe Romero [8th], new Brazilian signing Rodolfo Oliveira, with a spectacular goal from outside the box [28th]; Burkina Faso native Arthur Ouedraogo [76th, 80th] and Mauricio Acuña [92nd] tallied. Navrun Jacob bagged both Beyond goals. “In a difficult game we complicated [things] in the second half but, we recovered in the last 10 minutes,” summed up coach Calle.
STARS DIMMED NY Ukrainians also secured a semi-final date with Sporting Westchester in the Saunders Cup by beating NYC Metro Stars 3-1 at McCarren Park. Nazar Zarichnyy created the first two goals for Eduard Shidlovskiy and banged in the third [90th] to earn MPV honors. Arthur Ouedraogo [78th] had Stars response. “We missed a lot of chances of goals,” lamented coach Edison Calle.
SAMBA STAR Also in Metro Div. Two, Brazilian Rodolfo Oliveira notched a first half a hat trick in NYC Metro Stars’ 5-3 victory over Missile FC on Randalls Island. Ecuadorian Guiseppe Romero and Jonathan Coronel added one apiece in the second half. Missile hit back through Ricardo Vil, Selvius Shiller and Ben Alexandre, the latter from half the length of the field. “One of the best goals in the CSL,” gushed Metro Star boss Edison Calle. “Another important victory for the Metro Stars in a real tight game against Missile FC,” he added.
