Goals by Jordan, Dan-Chevaune and Biko in the 2nd half led Rosedale United into the semi finals.

Kadeem scored in the 26th and 34th minutes of the 1st half and Dan Brown scored in the 71st minute and Kevan in the 85th minute to seal the win. United had a full team for only the 2nd time all season, with 4 subs allowing for some coaching flexibility.

Sunday May 1, 2011 League Game 4 Rosedale United vs Cambria Heights Tigers 10am Idlewild Park
Won 3-1. Kadeem, Kevan and Rori 1 goal each. Behind 2 first half penalties and a great 2nd half strike, Rosedale United defeated their rivals, the Cambria Heights Tiger 3-1 and a hard fought and well played match. Cambria Heights was the stronger team throughout, tying the game after a penalty by Kevan but United's overall finishing and composure won out to keep the team undefeated.

Sunday May 8, 2011 League Game 5 Rosedale United vs Hempstead EOC Wolves 10am Kennedy Park, Hempstead Won 2-1. Dan Brown 4th (Nicholi assist) and 5th (Shawn assist) goals of the year.

Sunday May 15, 2011 League Game 6 Rosedale United vs Northport-Cow Harbor Phoenix 10am Idlewild Park

Won 3-1. Junior Elleston 1st, Nicholi 3rd and Dan Brown 6th (Nicholi assist).Once again Rosedale United overcame a lack of players, starting with only 10 men to win. The 11th man arrived 10 minutes into the game and after some shuffling the team began to play well. With no Akeen, Shawn had a shutout in goal in the first, with United getting good goals from Junior in 20th minute and Nicholi in the 38th minute to take a 2-0 halftime lead. Northport fought back, as Rosedale became complacent, to make it 2-1 halfway through the 2nd half. Then the defence, led by Mikey and Shane in the middle and Nicholi in goal, stepped up to lock down Northport and Dan Brown scored the crucial 3rd to keep United in first place.

Saturday May 21, 2011 State Cup 2nd Round Rosedale United vs Massapequa Aces Time 4:30pm Idlewild Park Lost 2-4. Biko and Kadeem goals. Rosedale dominated the 2 time champs early and behind a great goal by Biko and better one by Kadeem were up 2-0 after 30 minutes. Unfortunately this upset the ref who then called back a goal that would have made it 3-0, gave Massapequa a penalty just at the half to make it 2-1 and in the 2nd lost the game, as Massapequa scored 3 goals and got every call to win an advance. The worst example of refereeing since Ramapo last season. A disgrace as the better team lost today.

Sunday May 22, 2011 League Game 7 Rosedale United vs Syosset Red Storm 12:30pm Away at Stillwell Fields in Syosset Tied 1-1.Dan Brown 6th of season. With only 11 healthy players, United suffered a major post State Cup hangover. Taking a first half lead on a great goal by Dan Brown, United eased up and tired in the 2nd, allowing Syosset a late equalizer but remained in first place.

Monday May 30th, 2011 Rosedale United U 18s 1 -1 Cambria Heights U 18s. United fielded a younger team and took the lead on a penalty by Xavier but a 2nd half goal gave Cambria Heights a share of the spoils at this Annual Memorial Day game, played this year at Idlewild Park.

Sunday June 5, 2011 League Game 8 Rosedale United vs Farmingdale Thrashers 10am Idlewild Park Won 4-1. Dan Brown 7th goal (then walked off field prior to half), Kimani goal (Xavier assist), Biko goal (Kimani assist) and Nicholi goal. United started with 11 men and took a quick 1-0 lead off a Dan Brown goal. Farmingdale quickly tied game on a defensive mix up but United took lead again after a great run and cross by Xavier which was finished nicely by Kimani. Then the arguing among the players began, culminating with Dan Brown leaving the field for the rest of the game, leaving United with only 10 men. 2nd half goals by Biko, off a great Kimani cross and Nicholi wrapped up the win.

Sunday June 12, 2011 League Game 9 Rosedale United vs Auburndale Bayside Strikers 1:30pm Away at Fort Totten Bayside, Queens
Won 4-1. Akeen 1st on penalty, Xavier 4th and 5th (Jordan 2nd assist) and Keith 1st on penalty. Playing with 11 with 2 subs, United needed a win to clinch 1st place and got it. The team started slow but Xavier was brought down after 20 minutes and Akeen left the goal to score the penalty. Xavier then got a goal late in the 1st to extend the lead to 2-0. After the half United created chances but squandered them and Auburndale got a sloppy goal to make it 2-1. United scored a 3rd of a nice 1-2 between Jordan and Xavier who finished nicely and Keith was brought down in the box late, picked himself up to score his first for United from the penalty spot as the team ended undefeated at 7-0-2 to clinch 1st place.

Saturday June 18, 2011 LI Cup Final Rosedale United vs Northport/CH Phoenix 4:30pm Stony Brook
Won 5-0. Dan Brown 2 goals 9th and 10th of season and 2 assists, Xavier 1 goal 6th of season, Rori 1 goal (3rd of season) and Kimani 1 goal (2nd of season). Rosedale United had a dominating performance in defeating the Northport/Cow Harbor Phoenix 5-0 to capture the LI Cup and win the league and cup double. The game started off very evenly and United struggled defensively to sort things out as their regular goalie did not make the game. However, as they have done all season, United was able to make its natural talent take over as 2 very good first half goals by Dan Brown and Xavier gave the team the lead. United came out stronger in the 2nd with Dan Brown getting his 2nd (while missing 4 or 5 others to get his hattrick:) and Rori and Kimani added goals to seal the victory. A great performance capped off an interesting and very successful season. But will this their the last???

Saturday June 19,2010 Rosedale United vs West Islip Fire U19 Waldbaums Cup Final at 5pm at Stony Brook Soccer Complex. Won 2-1 in overtime. A very exciting game ended 3 minutes into overtime on a great left footed half volley by Biko. The game was dominated by Rosedale but not on the scoreboard. Biko finally gave Rosedale the lead in the 2nd half but West Islip scored a minute later to tie the game at 1-1. Rosedale did have a late penalty that was missed to send the game to its exciting conclusion.

Sunday June 13, 2010 Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Cambria Heights Kickers League Game 10am -Idlewild Park Won 6-0. Rori hattrick, Momodou, Jordan and Kevan goals.

Monday May 31, 2010 = Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Rosedale Under 23s @ Roy Wilkins Park 12 noon before Celebrity Soccer Game. The Under 19s fell behind by 2-0 by halftime but a great comeback started by a goal by Rori, off a Xavier assist and the tying goal by Biko gave the U19s the tie.

Sunday May 23,2010 Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Ramapo Valley U-19 State Cup Quarter Final 5:30pm - Suffern Middle School. Lost 3-1, Nicholi goal. Rosedale had 5 players yellow carded, 1 red carded, about 45 fouls called on them, the game called 10 minutes early with fight about to begin and without a doubt, them most biased referee it has ever had. This was the most surreal game I have ever been a part of. Thankfully Ramapo was soundly beaten 5-0 in the next round of the State Cup.

Sunday May 16, 2010 Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs HBC Stars League Game 10am -Idlewild Park Won 3-1.Biko (4th of season), Shawn (3rd of season) and Rori (2nd of season) each scored as the Rosedale United-SuperEagles defeated 9 man HBC Stars for its 6th straight league win. Rosedale came out strong and attacked the entire half but could not put their offensive game together. Having only 12 players, the Rosedale coaching staff decided to play with only 10 players on the field for most of the game to allow for better spacing and soccer. Biko scored a goal from close range halfway through the first half and Shawn hit a great left footed shot in the second half to give Rosedale a 2-0 lead. HBC did not give up and finally broke through with 15 minutes left, only for Rori to finally score his first league goal to secure the 3-1 win.

Saturday May 15, 2010 Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Cambria Heights Tigers Waldbaums Cup Semi Final 1:30pm at Montbellier Park, Cambria Heights

Won 1-0. Carlos 1st goal. A goal in first half injury time by Carlos, helped the Rosedale United-SuperEagles to the 2010 Waldbaums Cup Final. In very hotly but well played game by both teams, Rosedale created plenty of chances but could not break down the tough Cambria Heights defence for the important 2nd goal. Defensively Rosedale was stellar with Akeen making two great second half saves to preserve the shutout and the win.

Sunday May 9, 2010 Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs West Islip Fire Game #5 3:45pm West Islip High School
Won 4-1. Shawn 2nd (Joseph assist), Kimani 4th (Nicholi assist). Akeen 4th (Mikey assist) and Nyron 1st (Mikey assist). Playing with only 12 players and then seeing 2 players go down, Rosedale easily handled West Islip behind a great first half goal by Shawn, after a nice pass by Joseph and then three 2nd half goals by Kimani, Akeen and then Nyron. West Islip barely pressured Rosedale and only scored after a goalkeeping change. Rosedale remains undefeated this season, with tougher games to come.

Sunday May 2, 2010 Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Sachem Eagles League Game 10am -Idlewild Park
Won 3-0. Kevan, Akeen and Nicholi goals. Playing Sachem for the 2nd time in less than 24 hours was never going to be easy and it proved that way. Despite only having 10 fit players, Sachem battled Rosedale all game. The United-SuperEagles created some great early chances but it took an overhead kick from Kevan, 25 minutes into the half, off a nice flicked header by Kimani, give Rosedale a 1-0 halftime lead. A second half penalty Akeen and a late left footed shot by Nicholi gave Rosedale a 3-0 win.

Saturday May 1, 2010 Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Sachem Eagles Waldbaums Cup Quarter Final
Won 1-0 in OT. Rosedale advanced to the Semi Finals in a hard fought game vs the tough Sachem Eagles. Rosedale had plenty of chances to score the game but were unable, while Sachem relied on a productive counterattack, to almost win the game on 3 occassions. Finally in Golden Goal overtime, Nicholi set up Kevan for the winner with 3 minutes left before penalty kicks. Rosedale move on to face Cambria Heights in the semis.

Sunday April 25, 2010 - Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Massapequa The Fury League Game - 12:30pm at Burns Park, Massapequa Won 3-1, Biko 2 and Nicholi 1. Rosedale United-SuperEagles won their 3rd straight league game 3-1 as they defeated the tough Massapequa The Fury. The Fury fought for every 50-50 ball, were tough defensively and took the lead in the first half when the Rosedale defense fell asleep for a second. Rosedale were knocking the ball around the midfield well but not putting enough pressure on the Massapequa defense. Biko then broke through late in the half to tie the game and Rosedale went in tied 1-1. With some halftime adjustments the United-SuperEagles came out stronger in the 2nd and Danny played a great ball to Nicholi who scored a very good goal go give Rosedale the 2-1 lead. Massapequa never gave up and had a few chances to tie it before Biko's 2nd put the game away.

Sunday April 18, 2010 - Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Cambria Heights League Game Kickers 1pm - Montbelier Park

Won 2-1. Kevan 2 (3rd and 4th), Momodou 1st assist. In the local Queens “Derby Game”, Rosedale United-SuperEagles took the points in a well played, hard fought game. Cambria Heights came out the more fired up team, taking the lead on a penalty in the 24th minute. Rosedale began to come into the game and “scored” on a direct free kick by Kevan. Due to the controversial nature of the goal the Cambria Heights goalie had words with the ref and was given a red card. Down to 10 men Cambria Heights fought hard but Rosedale took the game to them and a great run and cross by Momodou in the 57th minute was headed home by Kevan for the game winner.
Sunday April 11, 2010 Rosedale United-SuperEagles vs Farmingdale Wolves Waldbaums Cup Round 2 10am -Idlewild Park

Won 6-0. Jordan 1, Kimani 2, Kevan 1, Shawn 1 and Akeen 1.

Facing the Farmingdale Wolves in Round 2 of the Waldbaums Cup the Rosedale United-SuperEagles struggled to find their way early, dominating the first half but failing to put away any of their early chances. The defense, led by Nyron, Arsenio, Mikey, Olu, Shawn and Shonari was solid all day, limiting the Farmingdale chances to some long freekicks and a couple of cornerkicks. In the 2nd half Rosedale came to life with a great goal by Jordan in the first 6 minutes followed by a tap in by Kimani off a Kevan free kick a few minutes later. Kevan then scored himself, off an indirect free kick played to him by Mikey, and then Kimani got his 2nd to make it 4-0 within the first 20 minutes of the half. Late goals by Shawn off a pass from Rori and Akeen off a pass by Kevan ended the scoring, sending Rosedale into the Quarter Finals where the face the Sachem Eagles.

League Game # 10 vs Sachem Eagles at home Sunday June 21, 2009. United defeated Sachem 3-2 behind 2 goals by Rori and 1 by Davidson. The win gave United a 4-3-3 record, good for 15 points and 2nd place in LIJSL's U-17 division. A solid season for United despite many ups and downs.

League Game # 9 vs Albertson Barcelona Academy at Soccer Park. United lost 2-3 to the cheap shot artists from Albertson, who not only grabbed jerseys all game but attempted to break another United player's leg late in the game as they had done in the first game. They also found it necessary to use 2 players from their Academy 91 team, who were not previously registered with the team. Goals by Mikey and Nicholi had tied the game at 2-2 but United lost its concentration and the game a few minutes from the end of the game to fall to 3-3-3.

League Game # 8- vs Bay Shore Ravens, Sunday June 7, 2009.
Tied 3-3. United created many chances but allowed a very determined Bay Shore team to score 3 goals on 3 shots and gain a tie with less than 5 minutes left in the game. Bay Shore took a first half lead but United, after missing great chances in the first half, tied the game early on a goal by Davidson off a nice pass by Nicholi. United then took the lead on a goal by Mikey from 50 yards but Bay Shore tied soon thereafter. United them took the lead with 15 minutes left off a goal by Rori. Unfortunately the 8 or so easy chances United had to put the game away came back to haunt them as Bay Shore tied the game late.

League Game # 7 vs Middle Country Rough Riders
Won 2-1. Rosedale United welcomed back Nicholi, who playing in his first game for the team since November, scored 2 goals to lead United to victory against the first place Middle Country Rough Riders. His 1st half penalty kick and 2nd half free kick, along with great goalkeeping by both Jordan and San Jay gave Rosedale United its 2nd straight win and 2nd place in the division.

Memorial Day 2009

Rosedale United once again participated in the the game "before" the celebrity game at Roy Wilkins Park. United U-17s faced off against the Rosedale Super Eagles U-19's, with U 23 players sprinkled on each side. United took a first half lead after Xavier knocked in a cross from the right and in the 2nd Rori and Hugh scored to give United a 3-0 lead. The Super Eagles were able to get a late consolation goal when "guest player", Michaela Duncan scored a nicely taken penalty kick to make the final score 3-1.

League Game 6 - Rosedale United showed the heart of a lion in beating Hicksville Alliance 3-2, with 2 goals in the last 4 minutes. United has been using field players in goal for the last 2 weeks and this week Jordan and San Jay stepped up to play great in goal. Hugh, making his United debut scored after 5 minutes to give Rosedale the lead but Hicksville tied it, midway through the half. In the 2nd half United had a chance to take the lead but Xavier missed a penalty kick and with it United, who had been fighting hard and playing well, lost its momentum and constant Hicksville pressure led to a goal with about 15 minutes left. However, unlike games in the past, the 13 players today had a strong belief and Rori got the tying goal with 4 minutes left and then off a corner kick, Davidson got the winner to break Hicksville's hearts. A GREAT EFFORT BY ALL THE ROSEDALE UNITED PLAYERS!!!

League Game 5 -Rosedale United fell to 1-2-2 as it lost 4-2 away to Sachem. Xavier gave United an early lead on a penalty but Sachem fought back to get 2 goals each side of half time, with Davidson getting a late consolation goal for United.

Leageue Game 4 - Rosedale United tied the Albertson Barcelona Academy 2-2 on a rainy Sunday May 3, 2009. United played a great first half, taking a 2-0 lead on a great headed goal by Mikey and a nice 1-2 play by Davidson and Xavier, with Xavier finishing well. Unfortunately the 2nd half was a disaster for United as it gave up an early penalty, the tying goal with 20 minutes left, missed many chances to win the game and then lost Akeen in goal to broken leg, when he was run into by an Albertson player and a penalty was called with Albertson missing the penalty.

League Game 3 - United beat the Bay Shore Ravens 1-0. After a scoreles first half, United put together a nice combination begu by a a nice cross by Chris to Xavier who found Davidson inside the 6 yard box, gave United the goal it need to earn its first league win of the season as the team's record improved to 1-1-1.

State Cup Round 3 - Saturday April 25, 2009 - Rosedale United did not put up much of a fight as it fell 4-0 to defending State Cup Champs, the Massapequa Aces. It was a disappointing turnout (only 12 players showed up) and a poor overall performance as the Massapequa Aces dominated the game from start to finish. United was unable to create any chances and failed to compete hard enough to give Massapequa much of a game, as they advance to the Quarter Finals. Akeen in goal and Shonari, Mikey and San-Jay on defense played well despite the overall disappointing team performance.

State Cup Round 2- Rosedale United defeated the American Eagles team 3-2 in State Cup play on Sunday April 19, 2009. Davidson had 2 first half goals to give United the lead but the American Eagles fought back in the 2nd half and on a penalty and a Roseale defensive mixup they tied the game. United regained its composure as Davidson finished off his hatrick with 8 minutes to play.

Scrimmage Game Sunday April 12, 2009 vs Cambria Heights Kickers. Another combined Rosedale United/Super Eagles team defeated the Kickers 2-1 on Easter Sunday. Gabbi scored on a long freekick and then Davidson scored a a nice finish to give United/Super Eagles a 2-0 halftime lead. The Kickers came out strong in the 2nd and scored a goal but the future Rosedale "United Eagles" held strong for the win.

League Game 2 - Another disappointing loss as Rosedale United fell 2-1 at home to the Middle Country Rough Riders. The team continues to create lots of offensive opportunities but our failure to produce the final pass or finish our chances is hurting. The team is also not playing smart enough defensively to overcome mistakes which cost us both first half goals today. We did come back quickly with a goal by Shevoy but despite a lot of 2nd half pressure we could not get the tying goal.

League Game 1 - Behind a much stronger defensive effort and some great 1st half offensive play United broke out to a 2-0 lead against the Hicksville Alliance but broke down in the 2nd half, hanging on for a 2-2 tie.

Waldbaum's Cup - A very tough way to start the Spring Season as Rosedale United fell 4-1 to the Hicksville Alliance in Round 1 of the Waldbaum's Cup. Far to many defensive mistakes by United put the team in a 3-1 halftime hole and despite playing much better in the 2nd half, United failed to capitalize on many of the 2nd half chances, instead allowing Hicksville a 4th.

Sunday March 8, 2009
Rosedale United battled extremely well to tie the Garden City Park Vipers 0-0 in their final game of the 2009 Dix Hills Spring Kickoff tournament. GCP pressured United throughout this game, hitting the woodwork several times but United were not without quality chances of their own, with Rori and Jordan almost scoring. A late scramble by a great defense, led by Mikey, Antwayne, Dylan and Gino, prevented a late GCP Vipers winner. Great job by all and our record of 2 losses and 1 tie was not at all indicative of the way the played, but a reflection of the quality of our opponents.

Saturday March 7, 2009
Great job today (Saturday March 7, 2009)in a tournament full of top teams. Despite losing to the Albertson Academy 91's 1-0 and Kirkwood Nemesis 2-0, we played really well in both games, created chances in each but failed to capitalize. The quality of our opponent was there for all to see and we matched both teams in play, skill and determination, but not in finishing.

Rosedale United vs North Bellport Blasters - Sunday November 2, 2008
Rosedale United tied the Division champion North Bellport Blasters 0-0 in a great game. Rosedale came out strong and created some great 1st half chances against the very tough U-19 Blasters. North Bellport were 7-0 and had clinched the division, but came out looking to keep their perfect record. United had 3 great chances to take the lead, with Nicholi and Jordan coming very close to scoring. North Bellport had some great 2nds half chances, hitting the bar and post and Devin made a great save in the closing minutes to preserve the goalless draw.

Rosedale United tied 1-1 at home to the tough HBC Stars on September 28, 2008. Xavier gave United an early 1st half lead but United, though applying great pressure, could not get a 2nd and HBC tied it up just as the 2nd half was beginning. Great goalkeeping by Devin kept the game tied and earned United an important point.

Rosedale United fell 3-0 to the Hicksville Alliance on September 21, due to some luck on Hicksville part and some very poor refereeing. Hicksville scored off a Rosedale clearance that hit of the back of Hicksville player, a goal that looked offside and freekick that hit the underside of the crossbar and then the Rosedale goalie to go in. Rosedale United will take the loss but know that better things and some luck will come in the future.

Rosedale United went to 2-0 as they defeated the Uniondale Hawks 2-0 in 2nd league game played Sunday September 14, 2008.

Rosedale United have been placed in Division 1 of LIJSL's U-19 age group for the Fall of 2008. The team also finished 3rd in the Spring 2008 Sportsmanship Standings.

A great time was had by all at Coach Patrick's House on Sunday June 22, 2008. There was plenty of food and fun as the team got together to celebrate the end of a great season.


On Father's Day 2008 it was appropriate that the 2 coaches son's, Xavier and Jordan would each score a goal to help United defeat Farmingdale and clinch first place. The third goal came from Geppe and a great team performance all year helped United to a league and cup double, the first time in the team's history. A great end to wonderful season for the Rosedale United team!!

Thanks and congratulations go out to all the players, parents and supporters (especially Cheryl, Coach Desmond, Coach Mike and our U-19 Big Brothers!!!)


Rosedale United won its first ever Waldbaum’s Cup title with a thrilling 2-1 victory over the tough POB Bulldogs. The United defence was thrown into shambles with Mikey’s injury and to add to that Shonari was late for the game due to an important musical engagement. That left the coaches having to try a new formation with players not used to being in the back. It was hoped that good midfield play would take pressure off United’s “new look” defence but alas it did not work so an exciting game was on hand.
United started well with Xavier floating in an early corner which Jordan headed in for an early lead. Unfortunately the defence did not handle POB’s direct style well and a handball by Matthew lead to a POB penalty, which was scored to even the score at 1-1 at halftime. United created many chances but were rushing and could not get the breakthrough they wanted. POB was pressuring United but Jordan was moved to sweeper and had a great game and then Shonari arrived to settle things down. United pushed for a winner and in the last minute a great pass by Danny to Rori led to a wonderful first time rocket shot off the post to win the game for United and put to bed the ghosts from the 2004 Waldbaum's Cup Final 2-1 loss to Albertson.

The Rosedale U-19 Super Eagles also won their Waldbaum's Cup Final, defeating North Bellport 4-3 in overtime to cap a great day for the Rosedale Soccer Club!!

Rosedale United defeated Bohemia 6-0 on Sunday to move to a record of 6 wins and 2 losses. The temperature was in the upper 90s and just before the game we realized that 2 players had decided to quit the team. This helped to focus the remaining players who fought through a 0-0 first half to bust out with six 2nd half goals, Rori getting a hattrick with Jordan, Xavier and Shonari getting goals. Devin had another shutout with Antwayne, Shonari, Geppe and Matthew doing a good job in our revamped defense. The team now moves on to the final weekend of the season with the Waldbaum's Cup Final on Saturday and the final league game at home on Sunday vs the Farmingdale Wolves at noon.

Congratulations to the Rosedale Rockets Soccer Club "United U-16 and U-19 Team" which defeated the combined Cambria Heights / Jamaica Maroons U-19 team 2-0 behind goals by U-19 players Marvin and Mardo. The game was played before a packed house at Roy Wilkens Park with the team unveiling its "lady strike force" for the last 10 minutes of the game.


First half goals by Xavier, on a penalty and Rori, who had two, helped United to bounce back from the previous day’s tough State Cup loss to Hicksville.


United fell on pks 3-2 to a very good Hicksville Alliance team in the semis of the Challenge Cup. United took a 1-0 first half lead after a scramble goal by Jordan but allowed the tying goal late in the 2nd half. Overtime ended with no score but United missed some key penalties to fall.

Rosedale United won their second straight league game, beating a gutsy Syosset Heat team 6-1.

2008 U-17 Real Caribe Maroons "Nelson Mandela Cup" Champions!!!
Behind strong defense, controlled midfield play and opportunistic finishing, the Rosedale United U-16's won the U-17 group of the Real Caribe Maroons "Nelson Mandela Cup". Facing a tough Academy Argeninta U-17s of the CJSL, United played a hard fought 0-0 tie. In game 2, Rosedale United faced the host Real Caribe Maroons U-17s and it took a late goal by Xavier and a great save by Devin to get United all 3 points. In the final game, United faced faced Big Apple SC. Once again the defense did its job and Jordan was brought down for a penalty which Xavier put away to give United 7 points in three games and first place.

Great job (in the freezing cold!!) by all the players and parents!!

Sun. March 9, 2008 ROY WILKINS PARK

Rosedale United participated in the "Unity Cup 2 Winter League" games at Idlewild Park on Sundays during the months of December 2007 through February 2008. Now on to the Spring Season!!

Unity Cup Games in Review
Quarter Finals
Game 4 February 2, 2008 Rosedale United U-16's vs Real Caribe Maroons U-19's
Tied 2-2, lost 4-2 on penalty kicks. Rosedale United faced the U-19 Maroons and fell behind 2-0 on an own goal and close tap in. United kept their heads up and strong play in the back by Mikey and San-Jay helped to settle the game down and a goal by Jordan, on a breakaway, cut the deficit just before the half. In the 2nd, with a wind advantage and more confidence, United tied the game after a nice pass by Brown to Xavier, who finished nicely. United kept up the pressure but could not get the winner and then fell on penalties with the Maroons moving on to face the Baldwin Eagles in a Semi Final matchup.

Our big brothers the Rosedale Super Eagles fell on PKs on Super Bowl Sunday to the Hempstead team 5-4 after a 1-1 game. Thankfully the Giants beat the Patriots to take some of the sting out of this tough weekend for both Rosedale teams.

Game 3 Sunday January 13, 2008 12:30pm Rosedale United U-16's 1-3 Hempstead U-19's

Rosedale United played a very timid first half against a very talented Hempstead team and fell behind 2-0 by the half. The second half was much improved with United creating many quality chances, only one of which was finished by Matthew. The team pressed all second half, playing tougher but eventually fell 3-1.

Game 2 Sunday January 6, 2008 Rosedale United U-16's 3-3 Cambria Heights Kickers U-19's.

United played a very well disciplined game and took a 3-1 lead on goals by Jordan (2) and Brown (1). Unfortunately the U-19 Kickers coach's desire not to lose (at one stretch using a 23 year old player) was too much and the Kickers scored in the middle of the 2nd half and then tied the game on a dubious penalty call to steal a tie. United played hard all game against players 3, 4 or 7 years older. Mikey was outstanding in his return to the team and Jordan scored 2 very well taken goals.

Game 1 Sunday December 9, 2007 Rosedale Super Eagles U-19's 5 -2 Rosedale United U-16's.

United fell to the extremely strong, top ranked Super Eagles after taking a surprise lead in the first minute on a nice goal by Jordan. The Super Eagles, recent LIJSL U-19 Division 1 champions showed their strength in coming back to take a 3-1 lead. Cruz scored for United but 2 more late goals gave the Super Eagles the win.
