The ORSA U10 Umbenhaur team lost a hard fought battle with the Kinzua Seylor team on Sunday 3-2.  The game was an even matchup between two talented teams, with Kinzua breaking free in final minutes of the match to score the winning goal. 

In the match, Josh Hacheral started the scoring off with a corner kick skillfully placed past the keeper.  However, the lead was quickly equalized when a Kinzua player was able to get past the ORSA defenders and was able to place the ball in the back of the net.  Seconds later, Ethan Umbenhaur placed a nice through ball to Gage Haniwalt, however the Kinzua players swarmed in and nicely defended the shot.  Later, Hailey Yard made a few nice moves to get inside the 18 yard box, but her shot fell wide of the goal after another nice defensive adjustment by Kinzua players.  The game entered the half tied 1-1.  In the second half, the Kinzua players scored quickly to put the game at 2-1.  Hacheral was asked to move from his defending duties up to the forward position, which paid off as he again placed a shot from outside the 18 into the back of the net.  This goal tied the game at 2-2.  The remaining portion of the second half saw the ORSA defenders and goal keeper turn away the charging Kinzua players, with several nice saves by Owen Smith keeping the game tied.  Umbenhaur and Haniwalt each had shots go just wide of the mark, but the Force were putting the pressure on the defense.  However, with 5 minutes remaining in the match, Kinzua was able to break loose from the ORSA defenders and score the winning goal just past the outstretched arms of Smith.

Overall it was a great game, as both sides played well enough to win.  The ORSA keepers played admirably, as both Drew Wilkinson and Smith made tremendous save after tremendous save.  The ORSA defense also played well as Ben Yard, Kenadee Schiffer, Wilkinson, Hailey Yard, Hacheral, and Kaden Henderson all pursued the Kinzua players with tenacious pursuit.  On offense, the ORSA players kept attacking all game long, with Hacheral, Haniwalt, Ethan Umbenhaur, Brady Umbenhaur, and Hailey Yard registering shots on goal.  The offense still continues to spread the field and make skillful passes, however this game didn’t see the Force offense capitalize outside of Hacheral’s two tallies.  The team learned a lot from this tough defeat, and will look to get back on the winning side this Saturday.
