Mariners NPSL
May 16th, 2015

On Saturday May 16th the Mariners NPSL Men's team took on the league leading NY Cosmos at 6pm. This was the second meeting for the two clubs with the NY Cosmos defeating the Mariners in their first match. The Mariners were able to catch the Cosmos on two counter attacks and were up 2-0 in the first half. With two minutes remaining in the first half a more than questionable obstruction call was made inside the Mariners 18 yard box. This gave the Cosmos an indirect free kick within 10 yards of the goal. Going into the half the score was 2-1 in favor of the Mariners. In the second half the Cosmos were able to take the lead for the first time in the game going up 3-2. With less than 5 minutes remaining the Mariners were able to pull one back and tie the game 3-3 with a strike from the top of the 18. Goal scorers for the Mariners; Grady Trimble, Elliot Maker, and Eric Barthold. The Men will be at home once again on May 30th at USM vs NY Athletic Club.  

2015, This year the Mariners welcome in new head coach Jim Hopkins after 8 season's at Dean College. He presence should ensure the team is very well organized and much more difficult to break down. The squad this season is expected to have a good blend of youthful exuberance and wily older guile and we welcome Venezuelan born striker Ramon Espinoza from Madrid who has a good track record at highly competitive levels.
At a very athletic 6' 4", keeper William Pike will provide a daunting figure in net and is expected to shore up the last line of defense significantly, while former All American midfielder Marc Goulet is the ideal candidate to pull the strings in the heart of the midfield.
This is a very tough conference but with the new additions to the squad, and a great coach at the helm, the Mariners are hopeful of a more successful 2015 campaign.
