Newtown seemed to get settled in & leveled the score. With high temperatures & sloppy play teams were awarded a water break. FSA entered halftime up 2-1. Shortly into the second 45 Newtown leveled 2-2. Both teams had moments but neither had sustainable control of the match. FSA struck next & led briefly 3-2. Newtown dug deep & netted 3 consecutive goals giving the club and 5-3 lead. About the 80th minute FSA struck again and looked the fresher of the clubs. Newtown got loose on the counter & put the game away earning them a spot in the CSL championship game!

Glastonbury has earned themselves a date with their biggest Rivals HNK Croatia. The history between these two clubs is second to none! With no love lost CSL soccer fans are sure to be treated to another epic chapter in this heated rivalry!
The second Semifinal wasn't lacking any fireworks between FSA & Polonia. Anyone who has followed CSL the last few seasons know that both clubs get a little extra motivation when playing against one another.
From the opening whistle this game didn't disappoint ! Both clubs came out very physical & looked to take control of the game. Polonia started the game with the better run of play but shortly after FSA settled in & found their rhythm. In the 33rd minute "Kzas Kazimeiclak" of Polonia put the home side in control with a composed finish. With a light rain & all the Polonia supporters engaged it looked like FSA would have to overcome alot. FSA managed to weather the surge & get to Half-time down 1-0. The second half was even more physical. In the 52nd minute "Patrick Plourde" was able to get FSA level at 1-1. FSA looked to control the middle of the pitch while Polonia attacked the flanks. In the 60th minute temperatures boiled over in the middle of the pitch. Unfortunately for the home side
"Polonia Falcon" the head referee issued "Demar Mesquita" a red card after a FSA foul & skirmish.
In the final 30 minutes FSA created multiple opportunities only to be denied in the final 3rd by great goalkeeping & a stingy Polonia defense.
The game looked destined for two 15 minute overtime periods when FSA finally broke through with the winning goal in the 89th minute setting up a Semifinal date with regular season champions Newtown Pride FC. FSA & Newtown have played some of the most entertaining & exciting soccer the CSL has to offer . CSL "GOAL OF THE YEAR" nominee came during the epic 3-3 draw in the fall. All the clubs know what's at stake! Top spot in Connecticut's top league! CSL1947 2017 edition!

Without a doubt team of the week honors goes to Polonia Falcon. Thursday night the Polonia pulled out a gritty 3-3 draw with first place Newtown. The Falcon's were able to play the game at their pace & style earning them a well deserved point. Even more impressive three days later the Falcon's traveled to the Irish American Club to face second place Celtics. Polonia was able to come away with a 2-1 road victory! Taking 4 points from the first & second place clubs in 3 days is a very good result. Polonia has two games next week VS local Rival FSA & a make-up vs CSL powerhouse HNK Croatia.
