LADIES TASTE DEFEAT ON THE ROAD

St. Louis, MO (July 1, 2016)   The Dayton Dutch Lions (5-1-0), Valley Division Champions, went on the road and were defeated for the first time this season 1-0 by the Fire and Ice Soccer Club (2-2-2).  The home team scored in the 19th minute and was able to protect that lead to the final whistle.

With the division title and a place in the regional playoffs already secured, the line-up had multiple changes in it.   Several players did not travel with the squad as rest and needed recovery from some minor injuries was important. The next couple weeks provide the team the opportunity for everyone to get some minutes, some rest and hopefully everyone healthy prior to the playoffs.

At the same time, the goal was the same as every match…..3 points.

Similar to the first matchup between these two teams, the Fire & Ice got on the board first.  With just under 20 minutes gone, a goal against the run of play caught the Lions and the 1-0 lead held through halftime.

The home team did a good job defending, maintaining shape and getting behind the ball the second half.  This limited the chances for the Lions and the final whistle came with the score still 1-0.

“We could just not get the ball in the back of the net. The ladies gave an incredible effort and in my mind deserved better. We did play short for a bit after the sending off, but if we show the same commitment going forward……we will be tough to stop in the playoffs,” shared Head Coach Ian Richardson. ”

The Lions have two regular season matches left:

Saturday, July 9th versus FC Pride at the Doc Stadium.  Kickoff is at 5:00 pm and is part of our doubleheader Military Appreciation Night as the men kickoff at 7:30 pm.  Tickets are available online at www.ddlfc.com or at the ticket gate.  Adults $8.00 and youth $5.00…..five and under are always free.

Friday, July 15th versus Cincinnati Sirens at Lakota East HIS.  Kickoff is at 7:00 pm.

The Regional playoffs are the weekend of July 23rd & 24th with the location still to be determined.
