West Carrollton, OH (May 27, 2017)  The Dayton Dutch Lions (2-1-0) suffered their first loss of the season to the Cincinnati Dutch Lions(1-1-0). While it was Dayton’s first loss, Cincinnati earned their first win of the season.  It leaves Dayton in second place of the Great Lakes Division.

Dayton made some minor change to its starting lineup from their previous two games of the season and the 3-5-1 formation held strong for the first half-hour even after losing Mathias Ferraz to an apparent knee injury in the 16th minute. Dayton was content to allow Cincinnati possession in its own half of the pitch while creating several half chances on the counter attack.  Both teams got shots on goal, but Cincinnati found the breakthrough from a header off of a long throw-in in the 31st minute.  The rest of the second half went the way of Cincinnati as they added goals in the 37th and 43rd minutes and the first 45 ended 3-0.

“Cincinnati was very opportunistic getting goals out of the smallest of chances,” shared Head Coach Marcus Rixon.  “The first two headers really took some of our momentum as we felt very comfortable in the flow of the match, but to make two errors in a five minute window was tought to take.  Then to concede right before half when we had multiple chances to clear the ball was dreadful.”

Dayton made two offensive switches at halftime and controlled the game to start the second half, but Cincinnati once again found a way to breakthrough Dayton to get the final goal of the game in the 54th minute. The teams went back and forth throughout the rest of the game, but no goals were to be found.

The Lions plays their next game away against the West Virginia Chaos this Thursday, June 1st at 7:00pm.
