Stamford Football Club U-14 Soccer Scores Victory

Stamford Football Club U-14 topped Revolution United in a resounding 5-0 victory Sunday at Notre Dame in West Haven. Victor Gjuraj, who led the team with two goals and two assists, initiated the scoring with an athletic left-footed volley shot that went beyond the reach of the keeper.

Despite many opportunities on Revolution United’s net by Tomas Pinto-Leite, Max Atkinson and Isaac Lowell, the first half ended 1-0.

Stamford played a commanding second half. Within a minute of play, Lowell passed to Gjuraj, who cut through the right side defenders and scored off a strong shot that glanced from a defender's shoulder.   Shortly thereafter, Gjuraj crossed the ball to Leao Valladares, who tapped it into the net. Valladares scored his second goal with a breakaway down the right side and a rocket shot that found its way into the lower left corner. Midfielder’s Jose Vergara, Jeffery Beltran and Jorge Ulloa demonstrated good hustle and crisp passes that dominated possession.

Pressure was minimal on keeper Danny Roca as the strong defense of Ralph Daniele, Ariel De La Rosa, Brad Kaptinski, Jack Duffy, Jorge Ulloa and Kevin Lam shut down nearly all of Revolution United’s drives.

The spirit and quality of Stamford’s play was best demonstrated by its last goal. The drive started with crisp passes that enabled Max Atkinson to blast a medium range shot at the keeper. Revolution United’s keeper could not secure the strong kick. Gjuraj followed through for the rebound and passed it back to Jose Vergara, who positioned for the shot and slipped the ball past the keeper.

Stamford F.C. will take on Sports World on Sunday at noon at West Beach.
