The reserves played well but all weak links were exposed later on in the game as they suffered a 4-0 loss. It was a lot closer than the score indicated as we missed a number of chances and they put 2 late goals in due to weak goaltending.
After missing last weeks game due to an ignominious injury Alex Luna returned to the pitch in grand style leading the 1st team to a 4-1 victory over Polonia SC. Goals by Vjekoslav Luburic & Marko Loncar and (2) by Chris Karcz sealed the deal. Props go out to Marlon Pollard who came in at the half and was the decided game breaker.
The reserves had to play a man down and managed to play Polonia to a 2-2 tie at the half. The second half was a different story as a tired team was unable to put up an effort and they succumbed 4-2. Goals by Renan Lopes and Kevin Skrivanich.
The 1st team needed a win to stay within reach of the playoffs and they played like it. Displaying an offensive capacity not seen at all this season they dominated the 1st 70 minutes of the game. And still found themselves losing 3-2. As good as the offense was the CPR goalie was that much better stiffling the Croats at every turn.
The Reserves came ready to play this Sunday. The ones that came anyway. Fielding only 10 players the reserve squad played admirably buy fell 6-3. One can only wonder what would have been with a full squad...
