On Saturday night at Commisso Stadium at Columbia University, forward Bledi Bardic’s hat-trick lead New York with Wojciech Wojcik chipping in the other goal.
Cosmos B netted the game’s first goal in the 21st minute when defender Johnny Borrajo found Wojcik on a deep cross. Just five minutes later, Borrajo was again the creator as he found space down the right flank and found Bardic, who scored his first of the game.
Just prior to halftime, New York extended its lead to 3-0 when Bardic took a pass from Jalen Brown and again found the back of the net.
Bardic would complete his three-goal night with a goal in the 72nd minute.
Cosmos B will now host Elm City Express in a playoff game at Hofstra Soccer Stadium. Kick off is set for 7:30 p.m.
