Tough loss DDL FC in Orlando

Dayton Dutch Lions News Release —

Sunday, August 31, 2014. WEST CARROLLTON, OH …The Dayton Dutch Lions (6-16-4) traveled to take on the Orlando City SC (17-4-4) this holiday weekend. The number one ranked Orlando City SC was eager to win after Richmond and Sacramento both lost some points the night before. It would prove to be very tough competition for the Dayton Dutch Lions FC, resulting in the biggest loss so far in the club’s history (7-0). Kevin Molino, leading the league in scoring would not disappoint tonight for his home crowd and would be the first to score for Orlando and also ending the night with a hat trick. Guiseppe Gentile and Austin da Luz would also contribute as would Adama Mbengue.

The Dayton Dutch Lions FC and Orlando City SC would both come out strong and hard. Orlando would strike first in the sixth minute though. Earning a throw-in, Orlando would find Giuseppe Gentile who would cross a ball to Kevin Molino and he would slide the ball to the bottom right corner of Dayton’s net, putting his team up by one. Dayton was able to stay in the game for the next half an hour and actually create some threat, making the team believe in bringing back some points to Ohio. Dayton had their best chance when Karamba Janneh fired a ball that would lead to a Dayton corner. The ball would find Joe Broekhuizen in the middle and Orlando’s keeper would block the shot. The ball would bounce around the Orlando box but be kicked out. Again in the twenty sixth minute Broekhuizen would take a hard shot, but the ball would go wide left. In two minutes though Orlando decided the game when in the thirty eighth minute the ball would end up loose in the Dayton box and Gentile would put the ball in the back of the net, and shortly after that, a give and go down the right would find Gentile, who would find Molino again, this time wide open, in front of the Dayton goal leaving Williams no chance and giving Orlando a very comfortable 3-0 lead. In extra time in the first half David Clemens almost brought the Lions back in the game when he got passed the Orlando defense on the right and shoot right to left, but again the ball would go wide.

Instead of Orlando sitting back they came out aggressively again to control the second half from the start, resulting in several chances. Kevin Molino would cross to Austin da Luz who would put Orlando up by four. Again in the fifty seventh minute the ball would end up in the Dayton box and Gentile would take a shot. Dayton’s keeper Matt Williams would block the shot, but Orlando’s Molino would be there waiting and would pull the ball back creating space and shoot for the goal for his third of the night and a hat trick. Orlando was not going to let up and in the sixty first minute Dayton gave space to Adama Mbengue who ran with it down the left and shot right into the back of the Dayton net for Orlando’s sixth goal of the night. Again in the seventieth minute Orlando would find the back of the net as Rafael Ramos would cross in the air and da Luz would head the ball into the Lion’s goal for number seven. Dayton would be dangerous a couple of times in the half and certainly deserved a goal, but they could not score. The statistics would tell the tale as Orlando would take 23 total shots to Dayton’s 4. Despite the score, Dayton’s keeper Matt Williams would record 10 saves on the night. The game would end; Dayton Dutch Lions FC 0, Orlando City SC 7.

Dayton’s Coach Matthew Weston had this to say about the game. “Incredibly tough night and result for the team as well as organization. After the last five games we have collectively taken great strides and as I’ve just told the lads we have to now respond. One bad day at the office cannot result in heads down and a defeatist attitude. We get back to Dayton, back onto the training ground and right the wrongs of this night. We look forward and not back as life’s lessons are learned on an evening like this. I have to put a special mention for Karamba Janneh who never gave in, was a constant threat and outstanding all evening.”

The Dayton Dutch Lions FC (6-17-4) play their last game of the 2014 season at home on Friday, September 5th at 7:00pm against the Wilmington Hammerheads (8-7-10).+ For season and individual game tickets, visit the Dutch Lions website.
