Tough result for New York City FC in 2-2 Draw against Toronto

New York City FC have had a hard time against Toronto FC, July 19 almost was different, it was a goal during stoppage time for the visiting side though that resulted in a tough 2-2 result for the boys in blue.

Toronto FC tallied the first goal at the 11′ mark as Ashtone Morgan put in a cross to the back of the post for the early advantage. Searching for a goal is something that is a familiar feeling for New York City FC, as they have looked for the equalizer in the past.

Once again the team found a response at the 45′ minute as Captain David Villa recorded his 13th goal of the season. The energy around not only the team, but also Yankee Stadium was a positive one as the team headed into the locker at the half.

NYCFC were able to take the lead as Maxi Moralez on a beautiful combination play with Villa, in his return to the starting XI.

It had seemed as if the home side was going to finally get a victory over Toronto FC, when a Victor Vazquez penalty kick gave Toronto FC a earned point, and the 2-2 result.

New York City FC will have little time to forget the result from this match, as they will host the Chicago Fire at Yankee Stadium, with the action starting at 2:00 pm.

The Brooklyn Cyclones are starting to gain confidence and momentum, as the 2017 New York-Penn League Progresses.

Brooklyn was able to earn the first ever home victory at MCU Park on a sweltering Sunday afternoon, prior to dropping the second game of a doubleheader against Connecticut . It seemed as if the team as a whole was just trying to make solid contact with the ball, instead of forcing the home run.

It also seemed as if Brooklyn improved on the defensive side of the ball, as the team also had the first errorless game of the season. Lots of positive progress all around for this young club, who will look to continue that as the year progresses.

Leading the way in the Cyclones 7-6 victory in Game 1 was Quinn BrodeyJose Miguel Medina and Carlos Sanchez all had two hits. Leon ByrdWalter RasquinMatt Winaker, and Franklin Correa all recorded a hit for Brooklyn.

Though Game 2 was a tough 3-2 loss, there were definite signs that the team overall were going in a positive direction.

Reed Gamache tallied three hits, while Byrd,  Rasquin, Winaker and Cecilio Aybar all had a hit. Doing a tremendous job on the mound was Pitcher Jose Carlos Medina, who struck out five batters in seven innings of work.

The Cyclones will complete this home series against the Connecticut Tigers on Monday, July 3 with the first pitch scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

Character was the word NYCFC Head Coach Patirck Viera used after the club’s 3-1 victory over Minnesota United FC, and that was exactly what was shown was Character.

The Boys in Blue have now been able to win Four Games in a row, while also recording three straight comeback victories at Yankee Stadium. New York City FC have  been training hard, and the results have shown in the last few matches.

Alexander Callens was able to help NYCFC tie the match at 1 during the 37′ mark, on a pretty passing play from Ben Sweat.

New York City FC gained the lead at the 57′ mark as Jack Harrison put in a beauty of a header for the 2-1 lead. Capping off the night on the offensive side was Captain David Villa, who recorded the third goal at the 62′ mark.

Returning to the pitch for NYCFC was Andrea Pirlo with 15 minutes remaining. Also a positive side for the Boys in Blue was the play of Eirik Johansen, who was able to get back into the goalkeeping groove.

Notes:

  • Ronald Matarrita made his first start since April 14
  • Ben Sweat completed his fourth assist of the season – the second highest tally for a defender in MLS
  • Alexander Callens scored his second goal for NYCFC
  • Jack Harrison scored his eighth goal of the season – doubling the tally he netted in his Rookie season
  • Rodney Wallace racked up his eighth assist of 2017
  • David Villa scored his 11th goal of the season and his 52nd in total for NYCFC
  • NYCFC recovered a deficit to win for the third home game in a row
  • NYCFC won their fourth straight game, tying the club record set in July 2016
  • Vieira’s side now have a 10-5-3 record through their first 18 games of the season

NYCFC return to action next Wednesday night when they travel to Vancouver to take on the Whitecaps. The next home game is on July 19th as they play host to Toronto FC.

There has always got to be nerves on the first day, especially when you have an opportunity to perform or play in front of a crowd in a Big Time City like Brooklyn.

Getting the first game under your belt is a huge achievment, and is something that may go a long way as the 2017 Brooklyn Cyclones games progresses.

For now though, the team as well as what was an amazing crowd was delt with a 7-4 loss to rivals the Staten Island Yankees in New York-Penn League action at MCU Park.

Catcher Carlos Sanchez was one of four Cyclones recording a hit during the course of the game, while also bringing home two runs. Jacob ZanonReed Gamache, and Ian Strom all were able to tally hits in the Season Opener.

This edition of the 2017 Cyclones will now get a full taste of what it is like in New York-Penn League, as they will have three games on the road in Vermont, before returning home to MCU Park to host Hudson Valley in a game scheduled for 6:00 p.m.

Back on a Positive Track for Cosmos with 2-2 Draw Against North Carolina

The New York Cosmos were able to get back on a positive track on 6/10, on what was a steamy day at MCU Park in Brooklyn, New York. Finding agressive play, plenty of offensive opportunities on the cage, and players to step-up it was an overall impressive performance for the Boys in Green in the 2-2 Draw against North Carolina.

Irvin Herrera netted his second goal for New York, the first coming in the 4-2 loss versus FC Edmonton on 6/7. Earning his first start with the club, and looking very impressive was Eugene Starikov. Later in the match Kalif Alhassan provided a vital spark for the team as a substitution.

Alhassan provided instant energy and aggression, and was rewarded for his efforts, earning his first NASL goal with the club in the 87th Minute.

New York were able to get plenty of amazing opportunities throughout the match, as AyozeWalter RestrepoJavi Márquez and Andrés Flores all had quality chances throughout the night.

In his return to the cage from injury Keeper Jimmy Maurer made several massive saves throughout the match for New York. Head Coach and Sporting Director  Giovanni Savarese will have an interesting task during the matches when it comes time for who will man the cage. Brian Holt had several brilliant perfromances, and may get the call to start more as the season rolls along.

The Cosmos end their three-game home stand with a face-off against Puerto Rico FC on Friday, June 16 at 7:30 pm.

Frustration for Cosmos Who Fall to FC Edmonton 4-2

A moment of Frustration for Ayoze during the Cosmos match v FC Edmonton. Photo by: Stacy Podelski/1495 Sports

It was a frustrating night for the New York Cosmos on 6/7, the first half firmly belonged to the boys in green up until the 65 minute.

In the 65 minute, all of the effort and work the team put into the match all went away via a series of Red Cards, penalties and eventually goals by FC Edmonton.

By the end of the match it was the visiting side that was able to take a 4-2 victory away from MCU Park, while also snapping a seven-game unbeaten run by the New York Cosmos.

New York had looked so dominant in the First Half of play, creating and trying to cash in on many great opportunities. It was during stoppage time that New York was able to score the first goal, as a cross from Ryan Richter found the head of Irvin Herrera.

Edmonton had tied things up in the 69 minute, as Sainey Nyassi opened things up for the visiting side. Minutes later, Tomi Ameobi gave the visiting team the lead. Later on in the match goals by Jake Keegan and Ameob helped to secure the victory.

New York will need to respond in a positive matter and will need for players to step-up, as not only many of the roster get the call to play for their respective National Soccer Clubs on Saturday, but there are also players who will serve a suspension due to the Red Cards issued in this match. The Cosmos will play North Carolina FC at MCU Park in a match slated for 4:00 p.m.
