posted Jun 11, 2014, 9:02 PM by Thomas Pfennigwerth
The ORSA Force Kerr team completed their season at 6-2 with a win at Kinzua Seyler on Sunday June 8th.  The Force started out sluggish in the first 5 minutes and gave up 2 quick goals to the pressing Seyler offense with the defense failing to protect rookie keeper Koben Parry who got the start in goal.  The team then rose to the occasion knotting the game at 2-2 answering with two goals of their own off the foot of Nathan Pfennigwerth.  Kinzua answered back with another goal but Lauren Billingsley quickly evened the score on a goal of her own off a nifty assist from Pfennigwerth.  Carson Kerr and Johnathan Leccia had several breakaway opportunites from heads up play that just wouldn’t go in the net.  Kinzua struck again trying to stay ahead of the Kerr led Force team.  The ORSA Force strikers changed roles as Nathan Pfennigwerth found the back of the net off a nice assist from Billingsley.  Pfennigwerth completed his first half hat trick knotting the score at 4 goals apiece and the half ended that way.  Johnathan Leccia entered the pitch as the 2nd half keeper and the defense strengthened in front of him keeping his jersey relatively clean.  Emma Pfennigwerth and Tristen Bliss reached deep within themselves to push through their fatigue as the defensive wonder twins.  Emma continued to press the offensive rushes to the outside and showed no fear facing down the forwards of Kinzua.  Bliss pressed the ball forward after he thwarted their attacks defensively.  Invigorated by the cheers of the crowd, Nathan Pfennigwerth struck down the Kinzua hopes with swift, darting moves slicing through the defensive effort to put three more goals in for a second half hat trick.  This gave him 6 goals for the game and 26 in the regular season.  The spread out play of Carson Kerr, Eric and Alex Reynolds, Koben Parry and Lauren Billingsley drew the defenders away from the ball allowing for skilled passing and teamwork that showed the hard work of the team throughout the season.  Kinzua tried an attack of their own putting a goal in to draw within 2 scores, but after Nathan Pfennigwerth was brought down from behind inside the 18 yard box, he gave his penalty kick to fellow striker Lauren Billingsley who handily blasted the ball past the efforts of the Kinzua goalkeeper to put the score at 8-5 where the game ended.  This was Billingsley’s 8th goal on the season.  Entering the post season tournaments, the ORSA Kerr Force should continue to see success as they grow with each other.
