9W lost 2-1to Port Chester, a team that beat them 5-0 last month. Special kudos to the defense of Deric, Ned, Jonah, James and Oscar, not to mention the goal keeping tandem of Julian and Harrison. After the match all the boys played a vigorous game of unstructured touch football.
13E lost 5-1 to the Rye Redhawks.
10W beat Asphalt Green 1-0. The whole team played a beautiful game. Carolina scored on an assist from Ella.
13E won An exciting game in Ardsley. On a mud and grass field, the NYC glas battled it out against the #2 team in the division. The Red Bulls went up 1-0 at the half with a beautiful shot by Emma that hit the crossbar but Isabel was there for the rebound and her first goal of the season. The second half had parents cheering frantically on both sides. Greenburgh put in a fierce ball to tie it up 1-1 then quickly went ahead 2-1. But a handball in the penalty area allowed Ailene to make it 2-2. The Red Bulls continued to put the pressure on and Kylie scored the go-ahead goal with a left-footed chip shot. One final penalty shot by Ailene made it 4-2 and the Red Bulls showed they could win on grass.
14W lost 2-1 to the Rockland Panthers. After the game Coach Ron celebrated a great fall season with a swell cake (pictured).
Really, don’t see Thor . It’s got the same plot as Ghostbusters, but without Bill Murray.

Last night was the WSSL Salutes its Volunteers evening. The club honored many of the coaches, refs, managers, photographers and others who make all the WSSL programs so successful.
Of special note was a surprise presentation for Dana DiPrima and Gabe Boyar, who run WSSL and WSSL Travel, respectively. To let them know how all of us feel about their wonderful work, each Travel team submitted a short thank you. Here are a few of the highlights:
Thank you for building WSSL into such a success story, including not losing sight of the core values on which the league was founded. If only Washington ran our government as well as you run WSSL!
Because of you, we have formed everlasting friendships and eaten the most fantastic chocolate cake ever! Soccer was the cherry on the top of it all!
For a mom (and Commish) who revolutionized youth soccer in New York City…And the dad without whom Travel Soccer would be an impossible voyage…
You have accomplished so much in such a short time. Creating a travel program that allows the players to develop skills and a sense of competition while at thesame time maintaining the supportive team spirit of the WSSL organization.
We and our daughters have met friends that might be with us for the rest of our days on this round earth. I can’t imagine a better thing than that. On behalf of our team we thank you from the very top and bottom of our hearts.
It is important to let you know that we consider it a gift that you harnessed your passion toward creating this wonderful athletic fulfilling atmosphere for our children!
Thank you for your incredible commitment to the WSSL. For sending a million emails, attending countless meetings, dealing with the parents, finessing things, dealing with the parks department and entering the labyrinth of permits, dealing with uniforms, handling drama, and just working hard and being devoted to the League that has benefitted so greatly from your limitless love and devotion.
Happy Kids Enjoy the Spoils of Victory
