Boys soccer roundup: Roosevelt honors late coach with win

Mike Pagano scored at 6:09 of the second overtime on a rebound of a Patrick Noonan shot as the Franklin D. Roosevelt High School boys soccer team defeated Kingston 2-1 at the first day of the fifth annual Joel Tomson Memorial Tournament in Hyde Park on Friday.

Tomson coached the Presidents to the 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 at age 54.

"I spoke to the team before the game about memories and how it's a memorial tournament in honor of Joel Tomson," Roosevelt coach Dan Cowan said.

Matt Koziol tied the score at 1-1 for Roosevelt (5-0) at 5:05 of the second half. Presidents goalkeeper Mike Bojko made five saves.

Roosevelt won a game in last year's tournament after falling behind 2-0.

"I didn't think they'd give me another memory," Cowan said. "We are happy and we are proud to get this win for Joel Tomson."

Roosevelt will host Carmel in its second game of the tournament today at 10 a.m. Carmel defeated Pine Bush 2-1.

Wilbert Gutierrez gave Kingston (1-4) the early lead with a goal in the 21st minute.

The Presidents (5-0) tied the game on Matt Koziol’s goal in the second half and got the winning goal when Mike Pagano redirected on a pass from Pat Noonan in the 96th minute.
