Lansdowne Bhoys Take 3 Cup Finals !
Lansdowne Bhoys 1st, Reserves and Metro teams win Dr. Manning, D’Arpino and Strumf cups in one day!
Three days after their bid for a fourth straight league title was dashed, Lansdowne Bhoys bounced back to blank 10-man Shamrocks 3-0 at the Verrazzano Sports Complex last Sunday and lift the Manning State Cup.
The result completed a hat-trick of cup victories on a heady day for Yonkers Irish. Earlier at Verrazzano the Lansdowne reserves had come from behind to edge New York Athletic Club 2-1 and retain the D’Aarpino State Cup, They’ve now won the trophy 3 years in a row.
There was a 5-4 penalty victory by the Lansdowne thirds (Metro) over fellow Metro Div. side Mr. Dennehy’s in the Strumpf Cup, another state competition. They were goaless after 90 minutes.
Lansdowne dedicated all three trophies to club president William Mc Grorys late father who was buried in Ireland on the day of the final.
