Best Loss Ever?!

Box Score

Oct. 6, 2012

Best Loss Ever?!

On a cool but sunny afternoon at Emory Adams Field 2, the HSA Cheetahs were outscored 5-2 by the Riverdale United.

Riverdale jumped out to an early lead on a corner kick and led 3-0 before the Cheetahs countered with two goals of their own to make the score at the half 4-2.  A defensive battle ensued in the 2nd half as the United scored once and the Cheetahs were held scoreless. 

The Cheetahs dominated possesion of the ball the 2nd half of the first period and most of the 2nd.  The early 3-0 deficit was just too much to overcome.

Over the years, my teams have never beaten a Riverdale team!  My 7-1 Spring 2010 Cheetahs only loss was to Riverdale 5-2.  My Fall 2010 Flag City Classic Tournament 2nd place team was shut out by Riverdale during the season 5-0.  My Spring 2012 Cheetahs lost twice, 9-0 and 5-0 to Riverdale teams.  Even my 10-1 U10 Girls "Stingers" only loss of the season was to Riverdale in the VanBuren Tournament!  I'm used to losing to Riverdale teams, but the effort that this Cheetahs team put forth was awe inspiring!  If you had missed the first ten minutes, you would have thought the Cheetahs won.  The Cheetahs dominated the United for three quarters of the game!  After the first ten minutes, most of the game was played in the Cheetahs attacking half of the field!   We kept the attack on and kept the pressure on!  I've never been more proud of a team!

Practice Monday and Wednesday as usual to get ready for the season ending HSA U15 Round Robin at Gardner Field Saturday evening!
