Another great night at our home ground at Hudson Sports Complex saw our team sweep Philadelphia Lone Star with 4:0.
Our team started the first half of the game on the front foot, pressing the opponent and playing attractive and attacking soccer. It has been a dominant performance of our Foxes who scored in minute 15 for the first time. Liam Henry stepped up to a penalty, kept his composure and scored cold as ice from the spot.
The team of coach Walter Jaramillo didn't sit back after the early opening goal, but was trying to push for the next. And only two minutes later, after a great combination from a corner-kick, it was Adrian Sanchez who scored the 2-0 with a smart run into the opponents box in minute 17. The game continued to be very one sided with a good amount of possession for FSA PRO. This dominance also reflected on the scoreboard. Joseph Nastu picked up the ball inside Philadelphia Lone Star's box after a smart combination through the middle, and curled the ball exquisitely around the goalkeeper (23').
After a very turbulent opening 25 minutes, our team controlled the game and possession without giving away clear chances to Philadelphia Lone Star's attack. It was not until the second half, when a quickly played free-kick and a low cross Joshua Geller, after a fine combination through the middle, found Liam Henry inside the box who just had to tip the ball over the line to make it 4-0 for the hosts (53').
An amazing team performance of FSA PRO who bounced back after their defeat last week to New Jersey FC.
Walter Jaramillo - Head Coach
"I am very proud of my team which bounced back from last weeks defeat. We wanted to show from kick-off that this is our home and that it will be hard work for our opponent to get a result. My team has put in a lot of effort which reflected in the 3-0 advantage at half-time. Big compliment to everyone."
