Boys soccer: Roosevelt claims 6th straight Tomson crown

Franklin D. Roosevelt High School's boys soccer team used a second-half comeback to win its sixth straight Joel Tomson Memorial Tournament title, 4-3 over Our Lady of Lourdes on Saturday in Hyde Park.

Trailing 3-1 10 minutes into the second half, the Presidents rattled off three unanswered goals. Yury Wajda sandwiched a pair of goals around a Matt Meck goal to give the Presidents the win. Wajda, a senior, also scored earlier in the second half and finished with a hat trick.

Joel Tomson coached Roosevelt to a Mid-Hudson Athletic League title on Oct. 25, 2003, while suffering from terminal cancer that spread from his lungs to his bones. He died on Dec. 12 of that year.

"Each year, it's been quite a challenge, and to win this means everything to me as a coach," Roosevelt coach Dan Cowan said. "It means a lot to honor a coach who used to walk the same playing field. Each kid dedicated the game to somebody special in the locker room."

Lourdes' Timothy Costigan scored the only goal of the first half, on an assist from John Enkler.

In the second half, Wajda scored the first of his goals on a feed from Alec Borowsky. Lourdes answered back with two straight goals — one on a Mike Ossolinski penalty kick and another by Matthew Chestney — before the Presidents answered back with their three unanswered goals.

"When (Lourdes) got the quick PK, I was curious to see how the kids would respond," Cowan said. "We kept the pressure on and were able to get more scoring opportunities in the second half than the first."

As for Wajda, his coach says he has the ability to change a game.

"Two of his three goals were basically his will and ability to break defenders down," Cowan said, adding that the other was on a free kick in the box.
