NY Pancyprian Freedoms Triumph Over Greek Americans in Hellenic Derby


In a thrilling showdown at the Metropolitan Oval, the New York Pancyprian Freedoms emerged victorious, defeating the New York Greek Americans 3-0 in the highly anticipated Hellenic Derby. The match, held within the Metropolitan Conference of the Eastern Premier Soccer League (EPSL), showcased skill, determination, and an unwavering competitive spirit.

The Pancyprian Freedoms wasted no time asserting their dominance in the first half when Shavon John Brown expertly found the back of the net, giving his team the 1-0 lead. The Greek Americans, despite their best efforts, struggled to mount any substantial attacks on the compact and slippery field, making it a challenging evening for their side.

As the second half got underway, the Pancyprian Freedoms faced a setback when Luis Argudo received his second yellow card, reducing their squad to ten men. However, this did little to dampen their spirits, as they continued to press forward with determination and composure.

The game was effectively sealed when Shavon John Brown once again displayed his scoring prowess, adding another goal to his tally. Arsen Dimitiriou followed suit, capping off a splendid performance and securing the Pancyprian Freedoms’ well-deserved victory.

With this crucial win, the New York Pancyprians (9-0-1) have firmly established themselves in the first place, sitting 5 points ahead of second-placed Lansdowne Yonkers FC and 7 points clear of the New York Greek Americans. As they look ahead, the Pancyprian Freedoms are poised to finish the fall season on a high note when they face last-placed SC Vistula Garfield on Saturday, December 16th, at the Athenia Steel Complex. This remarkable victory not only solidifies their standing but adds another thrilling chapter to the storied history of this soccer rivalry.
