Brooklyn Bolts to be Welcomed at Brooklyn Borough Hall on 10/15/14

MCU Park has been home to many historic moments, including welcoming back to the borough the sport of Baseball in 2001 with the Inaugural Season of the Brooklyn Cyclones.

On Tuesday, October 15, history will once again be made as the Brooklyn Bolts of the Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL) will bring the sport of Football back to Brooklyn for the first time since 1944.

The Bolts will be welcomed to the Borough on Tuesday, October 14 during a special ceremony at Borough Hall beginning at 2:00 PM. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, District 47 Councilmen Mark Treyger and Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce President Carlo Scissura will represent the borough at the press conference on the steps of Borough Hall. Also speaking at the rally will be FXFL Commissioner Brian Woods and Brooklyn Bolts Head Coach John Bock.

Prior to the event, Bolts players and coaches will mingle with fans as part of an autograph / photo session starting at 12:45 PM.

“When our ballpark opened in 2001, it marked the first time that there was a professional sports franchise in Brooklyn since the Dodgers left in 1957,” said Brooklyn Cyclones Vice President, Steve Cohen. “It’s amazing to think that 14 years later we now have professional sports franchises in baseball, football and basketball with hockey on the way. That’s a testament to the pride and ownership that the people of Brooklyn feel for their neighborhood teams.”

The Bolts and the Cyclones will be working closely together to ensure the Inaugrual Season to be a successful one for all involved.  The season consists of five games against franchises in Boston, Omaha and a traveling all-star squad known as the Blacktips. Rosters for all teams consist of players who are at most three years removed from college and all of which have some experience in the NFL and are looking to further develop in hopes of making it back to playing on Sundays. Players on the Bolts roster come from schools like Notre Dame, Michigan, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and Rutgers.

Tickets for the 2014 season start at just $20 and are on sale now by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting the MCU Park box office, or at www.brooklyncyclones.com.

Huge home victory for Cosmos as Chirishian nets Extra Time Goal against Ottawa Fury FC

On a must-win night for the New York Cosmos (11-6-7 Combined Standings) got exactly what they needed in the moment they needed it most, an extra time goal to defeat the Ottawa Fury FC (7-12-5) in North American Soccer League action on Saturday Night.

It wasn’t pretty as Ottawa started the match on a furious pace controlling the ball and getting most of the good opportunities to start the first half of play. It was the Cosmos that were able to strike first on a beautiful play between Danny Szetela and Diomar Diaz. It was in the 43 minute that Szetela gave a beauty of the cross from the right side of the field to Diaz who headed home the first goal of the game.

The Cosmos were able to hold off the Ottawa Fury FC offense for the first half, as keeper Jimmy Maurer was kept very busy, but kept the ball out of the cage.

Ottawa Fury FC struck back in the second half as Tom Heinemann netted the game-tying goal at the 58-Minute that was assisted by Philippe Davies. New York had many heart stopping moments in the second half of play most came off the boot of Mads Stokkelien, but at the end it took extra time for these two teams to determine a winner.

It was in the 93-minute that sub Hagop Chirishian was able to find the back of the cage, as the Midfielder connected on the game-winner with his thigh to give the team three huge points as things are in the most important stretch of the season.

Tonight was certainly an e-motional one for the team in not only earning the victory, but also winning one for Coach Giovanni Savarese who was ejected after questioning a corner in the Second Half of the game. The Coaching staff was able to pull together and make the right moves in the later part of the night to earn this huge victory.

The Cosmos will go on the road to take on Minnesota United FC on October 18, before the team returns home for the final match of the NASL Regular season on October 25 against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

1495 Sports is proud to bring the following postgame videos:
