Islanders lose SuperCopa: River Plate PR 2-0 IslandersBy: BoriQa | December 12th, 2010
Bottom line… The Islanders B-team was not anywhere close to the River Plate PR’s A-team, with their 7 starting Argentinian reinforcements (playing on questionable tourist visas and currently on investigation by USA Immigration).
Regardless, the Islanders poor showing in the 2010 SuperCopa Finals will keep them thinking about better planning for next year’s tournament.
The Islanders played the Supercopa without: Bill Gaudette, Nick Addlery, David Foley, Kendall Jagdeosingh, Marco Velez, Emory, Nurse and Daniel; all of whose contracts expired at the end of the 2010 USSF Div2 CHampionship.
David Horst (on loan from Real Salt Lake) was also missing from the tournament; while Alexis Rivera and Jonathan Faña were both unable to play in the Final due to injuries. Both Alexis and Faña played in the Group Round of the SuperCopa.
The Islanders will be looking for some revenge next year against River Plate PR in the 2011 Caribbean Football Union’s Clubs Championship.
