SSNYC Starts off the Season With a WIN

After falling behind by two goals in the early minutes of the first game of the season, SSNYC rebounded quickly with 4 goals of their own. Once SSNYC decided to use the full space of the field and put the ball on the ground, the Chelsea Pier’s Select team couldn’t regain control of the game. After gaining the lead SSNYC never relinquished it, wining the game 10-7. Following the game the team was treated to dinner by one of the teams sponsors, Bar Italia, 1477 2 Avenue New York, NY 10075 (212) 249-5300.

Below is the first goal of the game for SSNYC. Dexter Burnett, who recently got his green card replacement approved, collects the ball at our half of the field and chips it to Anthony Adebiyi, who is in the process of getting approved by the Board of Education to become a substitute teacher. Anthony neatly flicks it past the defender to Tokunbo Ajiboye, who is currently working at a department store in Manhattan while finishing up his associates degree and plans on playing college soccer next year while achieving his bachelors degree. After collecting it, Tokunbo places the ball nicely in the side of the net.

Please come to support SSNYC in their next game as the team tries to continue the great start to the season.
