end of the game to keep the tie! Our midfield moved the ball
very well and improved throughout the match. Up front, Luke Halberg
and Matt McCoy were very dangerous and did well
threatening their goal and backs. Jake Keegan secured the ball
well and created a few great chances."

play against one of
the storied professional soccer organizations. I thought we moved
the ball well and defended collectively with good
Coach Marco on the Dominican Game:
"We moved the ball well through midfield. Our young guys
did very well and are growing every week we see improvement.
Its been a very good spring for us so far and we are working
together to make it one of our best. In terms of growth it could
very well be our best, we are on that path!"
"Matt McCoy has had a great couple of weeks and is really
effective in our attack. His fitness is improving and he will
be even better once hes fit. Jason Ruivo has settled into
a back position and is increasing his range of passing as well
as ground covered! Ryan Walter, Austin Hughes and Jake Keegan
are doing well and will need to keep leading by example as we
start to push harder!!!"
