The CSSA Over-30 State Cup Final between Danbury United and Glastonbury Celtic FC was played at Falcon Field, New Britain on Tuesday evening:
Danbury United 3, Glastonbury Celtic FC 2
There were 87 spectators at the game!
CSSA Cup Committee Chairman Dave Carmody sends in this match report:
"Danbury United scored first at 39:50 of the first half after defending several serious strikes by Glastonbury Celtic FC who hit both the post and the crossbar.
"The Celtic evened the score at 51:54 in the second half. The game continued with many strikes and counter attacks of merit by both sides until a Celtic defensive lapse allowed a goal off of one of the defenders at 82:10.
"The Celtic did not quit and came back with a strong series of attacks, with an equalizer at 84:15.
"It appeared that the game would go to overtime but another defensive positioning slip permitted Danbury to score again at 89:10.
"The Celtic continued to press for the rest of regulation and for 4 minutes of time added-on, but were unable to score.
"This was the best Over-30 finals in several years in terms of the quality of play and the evenness of the competition. Both teams are to be congratulated for a fine display of talent."
This is Danbury's second Over-30 State Cup win and Celtic have appeared in the Final several times. Here are both teams' CSSA Over-30 State Cup history:
