With only 2 regular season games in, Yemen Elite is at .500 with a loss at Rush FC and a win at Polonia. The Rangers only playing one game so far beat Polonia with the same amount of goals as Yemen Elite. Last year’s match ended in an Elite victory 3-1 in West Seneca. Ranger claimed to have bolstered their roster and looking to do some damage at the “CAGE”. Yemen Elite is not backing down and are more than willing to answer the challenge. Some members of the Elite traveled to Coldwater Michigan Friday night and tore through 7 other teams to win the 2013 Unity Cup on Saturday. Driving back last night was their kipper Taha Omar who made sure they had a good night sleep while he drove the bus back. Will this effect their performance on the field or will they continue on with their adrenaline rush to stomp the Rangers into submission. Gil will be returning the line up after missing the Tehel Cup game as the hapless Monarch were no match to Elite’s front line (8-1). Mateo had an all-star game scoring a hat trick and 2 assist and goalie Semir Kardic scored a PK after Waheeb was tripped in the box. Hats off to Waheeb for his sportsmanship act.
Today’s weather should be a salubrious 76 degrees compared to the first couple of weeks of the season. Kick off is at 6PM today May 19th @ Lackawanna Yemen Soccer Field . Come show your support, bring your friends and family along for what should be a great game.
