Midd-West 9/7/17

Box Score

Oct. 4, 2017

Danville played against Midd-West for the second time this season. The game was played under the lights at Midd-West. The game was mostly played in the middle of the field for the first 20 minutes. Keith Sassaman did get a half chance in the box early that he was unable to get on goal. As the half winded down the Ironmen were starting to get some offense going. With less the three minutes left in the first half Danville got the break through. The Ironmen won the ball in midfield and Jacob Foster got the ball and turned forward. Jacob was able to slot the ball to Silas Olshefski who hit a low hard shot to the far corner for the lead. Danville started the second half with a great chance to double their lead. In the second minute a cross from the right found Andrei in the box, his 2 efforts were blocked. Then Silas had a go and it also was blocked. Shortly after Midd-West was awarded a free kick in the final third of the field. The ball was served into the back post and headed back to the near post and scored. Danville kept their composure and kept creating chances. Seven minutes after Danville restored their lead. Jacob Foster played a through ball behind the defense. Andrei Bucaloiu was the first to the ball and took a few dribbles and finished in the upper 90. For the next 20 minutes

Danville had the better of the play and were unlucky not to add to their lead. From the high pressure Silas was able to get past the last defender and was just unable to finish past the keeper. Shortly after Jacob Foster was denied by the post. In the last ten minutes Midd-West began to push for the tieing goal. Some alert defending and goal keeping kept the Ironmen lead safe. Ironmen improved to 12-1 on the season and next play away at Mfflinburg on Wednesday.
