Kendall A had three games in ten days and came through with three wins and a place in the BSSL Cup final. On Wednesday October 10th, Kendall played BCS XI in the semi-final of the BSSL cup. Extra time looked on the cards approaching the 90 minute mark until Derry's Declan Header stood up to a free kick on the edge of the box and drove it into the top corner. Kendall will now face First Wave in the final on November 3rd. On Wednesday October 17th, Kendall had a 5-2 win over Mass United in league action. Robbie Sabadoz scored a hatrick with Taylor Gorman and Ben Brewster getting the others. On Saturday October 20th, Kendall had another 5-2 league win this time over Cambridge Arsenal. Declan Hunter got two with Phil Keane, Robbie Sabadoz and Mark Nolan gettnig the rest.

Kendall B had a 1-0 win over Harvard Medical on Saturday. Derrick James got the winner with Evan Berube in goals, Kieran Reid and Dennis Brosnan all having very good games.

Kendall C had a narrow 2 - 1 loss to top of the table Holliston in Madison Park. Playing some of their best football of the season, the boys were unlucky to be two down at half time. Dominating possession in the second half, the C team pulled one back through Cobhan Philippson with about 15 minutes to go and despite a lot of last minute pressure were unable to get the equalizer. A disappointing end to a frustrating season for the C's.

In Sundays over 30s action, Kendall o30s A drew 1-1 with their closest rivals, Needham. Jonah Fontela put Kendall in the lead early in the second half with a classic poacher's finish. Needham converted a penalty later on to equalize, setting up a hectic finale. Both teams had chances to win it, John O'Toole pulling off a string of fine saves to weather the Needham onslaught. Paul Garvey & James Canny came closest to nicking the winner for Kendall, the latter coming within inches of converting a fine cross from Uarlington Almeida with the very last touch of the match.

Kendall's O30Bs saw their chances of making the playoffs recede with a 3-1 defeat to Mefield in Dedham. Medfield started stronger and a defensive slip put them 1-0 up after 15 minutes. Kendall fought back to make it a more even contest and Andy Devey scored a poacher's goal after great work on the left by Dennis Cunningham to level the scores. Mefield came out the stronger again in the second half and Kendall keeper Graeme Doran tipped a fierce shot on to the crossbar. At the other end, Kendall player-manager Johnny Kilpatrick hit the crossbar after a great pass from Tomislav Zovko. Just as Kendall was getting on top, Medfield scored again to make it 2-1. Kendall threw everyone forward in search of an equalizer and created a couple of good chances but were caught on the break at the end as Medfield made it 3-1.
