Saturday at Bernlohr Stadium we faced Ohio Northern with a kick off of 11am. The game started out smooth as we possessed the ball and moved it around purposefully. Unfortunately however, after a string of mistakes on our end Ohio Northern scored just 11 minutes into play. The rest of the half became a battle for possession and for control of the game.
In the second half our Crusaders came out fierce, took control and dominated the play. They kept the ball in our offensive half the rest of the game and had countless attempts at goal. We had 18 shots on goal but they all fell short of scoring. Even though we kept the ball, created chances, and fought for every opportunity to score we were unable to finish. The game ended in a loss 0-1. Even though the outcome was unfavorable, we were able to see points and areas that need to be addressed and everyday we can work to get better in those specific areas. We are preparing for our next match tomorrow against Marietta. Kick off is at 4pm at the Marietta Soccer Complex.
