 Tough weekend in St. Louis...

The U18 and U16 traveled to St. Louis last weekend to face off against Scott Gallagher Metro and Missouri and boy was it not rewarding...

U18's first match was a very back and forth against SLSG Missouri. They scored first and we came back to score on a PK after Patrick Foglio was blatantly taken down in the box after getting past their defense with his pace. Jordan Zarse stepped up to score the penalty for us. After going behind again in the second half Michael Oakley took a nasty kick in the face from a high kick, then got up from the injury and created the perfect cross for Alex Pilsl to drill home the equalizer in the last 5 minutes of the game. The game 2-2 in an evenly matched game.

On Sunday March 7, the team had a slow start to a game with a below par performance against SLSG Metro. The game was a very stop & start type game and we struggled to contain their forward line up in the first half leading to a goal from them on the 8th minute. In the 2nd half after GK Taylor Vinnage kept the Wizards in the game with several excellent saves, they went on to score putting the game at 2-0.
In the 68th minute, Will Witherspoon scored with a powerful header from a corner & despite looking lively for the rest of the game, we failed to equalize. A disappointing loss of 2-1.
