Long Island Fury Top Millburn Magic, 2-1
Two Long Island Fury players from the inaugural national championship season of 2006––Michele Scifo and Cody Newman––helped propel the Fury to victory tonight in front of their very wet fans at Aviator Field in Brooklyn. The Fury topped the Millburn Magic, 2-1. With the win, the Fury improve to 3-3-2 while the Magic drop to 1-5-3 and the Fury now have a 6-1-1 all-time record vs. the Magic.

Newman opened the scoring in the 13th minute when she took the ball at midfield, dribbled past two Magic players and then scored on a sizzling 30-yard shot that dipped into the far lower corner of the net––one of the prettiest plays that you’ll ever see on a soccer field. The Magic knotted it up in the 24th minute when Kayleigh Hines scored on a 30-yard direct kick.

The Fury’s winning goal came in the 50th minute when Scifo’s corner kick found an unmarked Enma Mullo, who shot from the top of the penalty area. The Fury could have added to their lead 25 minutes later on another corner kick but Devin Pendergast’s blast from the 18-yard line was saved spectacularly by Magic goalkeeper Amanda Davis, who also saved the Shannon Horgan rebound attempt. Davis had four saves for the Magic while Brittany Anghel had one save for the Fury. The Fury had a 16-4 shot advantage and a 3-0 corner kick advantage.

“Overall, the team played excellent,” commented Fury head coach Michael Demakis. “The team jelled very well tonight. Michele Scifo and Devin Pendergast were both unbelievable in midfield.”

The Fury host the 2-3-2 New Jersey Blaze this Sunday, July 10, 5:00 pm at Aviator Field. It’s the first-ever meeting between the two sides and the last regular season home game for the Fury in 2011.

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,
