Long Island Fury Put Out New Jersey Blaze, 5-0
The Long Island Fury doused the New Jersey Blaze, 5-0, on July 10 at Aviator Field in Brooklyn to remain hot in the Women’s Premier Soccer League. It was the Fury’s third consecutive victory. The Blaze dropped to 2-5-2 while the Fury improved to 4-3-2. The Fury have an all-important game tomorrow night vs. the 5-2-1 CFC Passion at Yale University. The Fury need to win that last regular season game and could get a playoff spot based on other results.

Devin Pendergast scored two goals tonight for the Fury while CC Greer, Cody Newman and Cari Roccaro added one goal each. Jasmyne Spencer did not score but she added three assists.

Brittany Anghel played goal in the first half for the Fury and had to make one important save, when the Blaze’s Meghan Ledwith beat the Fury defense and took a shot from 10 yards with the game scoreless in the 21st minute. The Fury’s Alicia Ramos played in goal in the second half and did not need to make a save. Kelly Leddy made four saves for the Blaze.

“We possessed the ball very well. We opened up the field with good passing and dragged their defenders back,” commented Long Island Fury head coach Michael Demakis. “The central midfielders controlled play and our finishing was very good tonight. There was nice attention to detail on our corner kicks and Emily Menges and Deanna Murino were solid in the back.”

The statistics show that the Fury dominated play, holding a 17-6 advantage in shots and a 6-1 advantage in corner kicks.

Founded in 2006 as a Women's Premier Soccer League franchise, the Long Island Fury won the WPSL national championship in both 2006 and 2009. Seven Long Island Fury alumnae--Gina and Tina DiMartino, Kelly Henderson, Ali Long, Rebecca Moros, Alex Singer and Sue Weber--used their phenomenal play for the Fury to become professional players in Women's Professional Soccer. Their former coach, Paul Riley, now coaches the Philadelphia Independence franchise in that same league. For more info, log on to their website,
