ORSA Force U14 at Grove City

posted Apr 28, 2014, 10:24 PM by Thomas Pfennigwerth

The ORSA U14 team dropped a hard fought decision, 3-0, to Grove City on the road.  The Force opened with a strong effort with no subs and one player ill.  The first half was a scoreless battle for most of time.  Calvin Ceprish took several feeds from Dan McQuaide that led to offensive chances and crosses that just didnt connect.  The Grove City keeper was sharp and thwarted a couple good looks.  The defense held strong and was able to defend a number of corners and keep any good chances at goal.  Grove City finally tallied late in the half on a bouncing shot the was initially saved by keeper Sam Pfohl.  A quick reflex save appeared to push the ball past the far post but a crazy spin allowed the ball to trickle across the line just inside the post.

The second half again opened with the Force pushing forward.  Joe Danvers and Braeden Riley kept pushing through the midfield with strong play.  McQuaide again made several chances happen.  A great cross was volleyed just wide by Ceprish.  Ultimately the lack of subs caught up with the Force as Grove Citys best player made a couple of incredible individual plays to set up the last 2 tallies of the game. 

The defense was led by Greg Fackler in center defense.  Clayton Stover and Nick Swatzler shared Player of the Match honors for their solid defense.

The team will host MSA this coming week at Oil City HS.
