Tonight we had a chance to replay Sexton and make amends for the poor effort last time out against them. Tonight was a different story and although we had some lapses in focus and application, we generally outplayed them for most of the game. It’s those lapses that would end up costing us in the end though, which was unfortunate given our overall performance.
From an attacking stand point, we had plenty of time in their defensive third of the field but only managed a few shots on goal. Goals were scored by Dylan Wohlscheid and Tomeu Gomila, both assisted by Justin Sarka. We know we can score and we need to try to get more shots on goal. Defensively, the team worked hard and did a good job of supporting each other. We’re really bummed not to have taken this match. So we’ll look to take tonight’s performance and apply it through the entirety of Thursday night’s match.
