Serbia’s Assistant Coach Alex Matovic gave the following account of both games, “NY Serbia vs Glen Cove reserve game: the game got off to a fast start with chances by Serbia and Glen Cove. Serbia had a great scoring chance on a corner kick. Pavle Petricevic gets a head on the ball, but Glen Cove’s goalkeeper made a beautiful finger tip save. Few minutes later, Akroyd Obino gave a ball to Djiby Diallo and with one move on the goalie he put it past him for a 1-0 Serbia lead and that’s how the first half would end.”
“Second half Glen Cove came out pressuring and scored an equalizer and then few mins later a mistake by Serbias goalkeeper saw Glen Cove go up 2-1. With 1 minute left Serbia off a free kick Dane Cardiel puts the ball in the box and Djiby Diallo shoots a low ball into the back of the net to end the game in a draw! Great game by both teams and the ref was very good too!”
“In the first team game Glen Cove got off to a good start and with a mistake by Serbia’s goalie Glen Cove capitalized and took an early 1-0 lead. Serbia fought back and with a beautiful free kick by Boban Velcanovic Serbia leveled it 1-1 at half. Second half Glen Cove came out firing and even though Serbia’s goalkeeper made some great saves he couldn’t stop them all and Glen Cove won the game 3-1! Again great game and it was a pleasure to play against Glen Cove.”
