Game: Dayton Dutch Lions FC U14 Boys – Club Ohio Cincinnati 98B Green

Score: 1-1

 

Player of the day: The Team

 

Game report:

 

After a good tournament last week with 2 wins and, at times, quality soccer we continued to show our improvement at Wall2Wall. Club Ohio beat us in our first game of the indoor season with 5-0, but today the boys showed determination and the absolutely will to win.
We were close to a huge upset, beating the undefeated Club Ohio, but a corner kick 2 minutes from the end gave us a tie. Still a great result!

 

Of course there were some excuses for our opponent. They already played 2 games that day coming from a tournament and their call for PK could have been honoured, but the U14 Boys showed that we are a difficult team to beat.

 

We started with a lot of pressure, surprising our opponent with an offensive playing style. We didn’t create big changes, but we controlled the pace of the game in the first 15 minutes. After this we got pushed back further then we wanted, but we hardly gave up any changes.

When Dylan made a great tackle, on the ball, and gave a great pass it was Jack who used his speed just beating the keeper to the ball to pass the ball in the open net. This also meant that the game pace even went up higher.
Unfortunately we capitalized on a well taken corner 2 minutes before the end, 1-1. Trent had a great save just before the end to give us a well deserved tie

 

Coach Patrick was pleased with the will to win that was showed. “It has only been a few weeks since I stated that the boys lacked the absolute will to win, resulting in 2 big losses at the start of Wall2Wall. Since that time the boys have been working hard at practice and are now getting the results they deserve. Last week we had great tournament and also today we showed we can be a very difficult team to beat. I’m very positive that we will do fine in the Buckeye League this season if we keep fighting like this. Of course today we worked hard, but we didn’t play to good. That was mainly because of the strength of our opponent. Not losing to this team, and almost beating them, is a big compliment to the players”.

Halftime score: 1-0 Dutch Lions
Final score: 1-1
Player of the game:

After the game coach Tommy was not sure what to think: “We didn’t play well at all, but we still should have won. On the one side I am happy we worked really hard despite it not being our day, on the other side I do expect us to play a lot better. I think Cincinnati  United was the better team today, but we should have won. We should have scored 1 or 2 more goals in the first half and never given away the goal they scored, 5 minutes before the end of the game.”

 

Game: Dayton Dutch Lions FC U18 Boys – CU Slam

 

Date/time: March 17th 2013, 9.00 AM

 

Score: 1-0

 

Player of the day: Joey for scoring the winning goal

 

Game report:

 

In absence of Coach Dave, who enjoys a well-deserved vacation in the Netherlands, Coach Patrick came out for an early Sunday morning game.

 

The U18 Boys started great to the game. With a lot and high pressure we didn’t give CU Slam any changes to pass and possess the ball and with the ball we played nicely with fast attacks and always finding the open player.
Unfortunately the final pass was a lot of times just a little off so we didn’t create as many changes as we could have.

 

After playing good possession and creating a few changes we scored one of the ugliest goals who can find. With the ball being kicked multiple times by players from both teams, us not being able to finish and CU not able to clear, the ball ended in front of Joey who (finally) finished one of our changes.

 

Halfway thru the game we were playing without subs with JB and Matt going out injured. The 11 on the field worked hard and even though we got tired we kept passing nicely and never had too much to worry for not winning the game.

 

Coach Patrick: “It was fun to be with this team again after coaching them last year. A few new faces, but the core of the team is still the same. I want to make the boys a big compliment for their style of play, the team spirit and how they handled the situation with not having any subs and a few players on the field that are not used to play a full game. They did a great job and they got a deserved win”.
