Fury Tie CFC Passion, 2-2, in WPSL Action
It’s not what the Long Island Fury wanted but like many Dads across America, they wound up with a tie for Father’s Day. Their Women’s Premier Soccer League match against CFC Passion of Connecticut at Aviator Field in Brooklyn ended in a 2-2 stalemate. Both teams are now 1-1-2.

“We did not come out to play. We were lackluster and showed no energy and it’s very disappointing to see the difference between today and our game last Wednesday,” commented Long Island Fury head coach Michael Demakis. “We played direct, we played physical and that’s not our game. We are a ball control team and we should attack quickly and defend quickly.”

Against the run of play, the Fury’s Jasmyne Spencer hit the post with a shot from 20 yards in the 11th minute. CFC opened the scoring in the 25th minute when Kerry Doyle scored on an angled shot off a breakaway, beating Fury keeper Brittany Anghel. The score was 1-0 at halftime after CFC keeper Kelly Boudreau saved Kari Quinn’s breakaway attempt in the 44th minute.

The Fury came out with more urgency in the second half and knotted the match at one when Cari Roccaro fed Jasmyne Spencer who scored on a breakaway from eight yards in the 62nd minute. Spencer made it a brace when a CFC defender passed the ball back to Boudreau and her clearance hit Spencer in the shoulder and bounced in the net in the 62nd minute.

CFC knotted the game in the 67th minute when Kelly Scalora fed Doyle, whose 10-yard beat Fury keeper Alicia Ramos.

“I think in the second half, we played very well for the first 15 minutes or so when we scored our goals but we had three or four other opportunities to put the game away but did not because of poor decisions in their penalty area,” said Coach Demakis. “We again paid the price for it.”

CFC keeper Boudreau made eight saves while Fury keepers Anghel and Ramos each had two.

The Fury next plays at the 3-3-0 FC Bucks on Saturday, June 25.

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,
