BRONX, NEW YORK, OCTOBER 8- With just about two weeks remaining in PSAL Boys Soccer, John F. Kennedy Campus hosted Christopher Columbus Campus October 7th.
On opposite sides of the standings in the Bronx A division, Kennedy was playing for pride, needing to essentially sweep their remaining games for a playoff run. Columbus on the other hand had hopes for improving its playoff positioning as they stood tied with Evander Childs Campus for second place.
Kennedy played as if they needed it, scoring two early goals to grab a 2-0 lead. The opening goal came off a header near the net. Columbus however, chipped away scoring all 4 goals in the second half, including a final goal within the last minute of play, beating Kennedy 4-2.
Kennedy now falls to 1-5-1 (4 points) with 4 games left, while Columbus stands at 5-1-2 (17 points) still tied with Evander (5-1-2, 17 points) who defeated Clinton 5-1 October 6th.
Hoping to leapfrog into first place, both Columbus (October 15th) and Evander (October 18th) play division leader Bronx HS of Science (6-0-2, 20 points) during the final week of regular season play.
