Kenmore 4, Concord FC 3
Concord’s rematch with Kenmore took place on another rainy evening on the pitch. Kenmore struck first with a nice goal from distance to beat Concord’s goalkeeper Mason Tomaszewski. Concord answered with a long goal of its own from center-back Jude Murphy and went into halftime with the game tied at 1. The second half saw a back and forth contest, with Concord’s Naisaih Rodriguez tallying both of Concord’s goals, but it was not enough as Kenmore scored the game winner with a minute left off a corner kick for the win. David Girdlestone and Tomaszewski split goalie duties, both having to adjust to the wet conditions. Anthony Piede and Henry Leone helped set up many scoring opportunities for Concord, as well as the hustle of Eli Greeenough who had a few nice chances. Aiden Czekanski’s efforts off a few nice crosses just missed being tallies for Concord as well. Concord has one more league game left in the Buffalo and Western New York Junior Soccer League.
