Hoboken FC made the most of Manhattan Kickers’ weekend off to move atop the Division 2 South standings. They hammered Beyond FC 5-1 at Laurel Hill Park in a local derby between the CSL second tier’s two New Jersey-based clubs.
Beyond showed some early grit, Sherief El-Helai [19th] pegging back Josh Murphy’s 13th minute strike. But Cory Chaplin [30th, 90th], James Reed [33rd] and Danny Fernandez [86th] would blow Beyond away.
Hoboken [9-2-2, 29] went a point clear of Kickers and four in front of Stal Mielec, who also were off.
The Hoboken FC Reserves won 2-1. The goal scorers were:
Gleb Mironenko [17th] and Rabii Elguermouni [75th] scored in the Hoboken seconds’ 2-1 decision. Karl Verna [88th] had Beyond’s response.
