posted Jun 2, 2014, 9:27 PM by Thomas Pfennigwerth
The ORSA U14 team travelled to Greenville this week to face an undefeated opponent. Ultimately the Force dropped a 2-0 decision in a hard fought game. The game began with a big push by Greenville but the ORSA defense was up to the task. Ian Hepler, Greg Fackler and George Coon held firm and limited Greenville to outside and poor angle shots. Each easily handled by Sam Pfohl in the net. As the half wore on the Force began to level the run of play and generate some offense. Clayton Stover broke past the defense and left a nice centering pass to Dan McQuaide who found the ball an inch out of reach to push it just wide of the net. The half ended in a scoreless tie.

The second half again saw the teams vying for the difference maker. Eventually the Greenville squad was able to find the corner of the net in the final 10 minutes to take the lead. The Force rallied to find an equalizer and again Stover was through the defense with McQuaide and Braeden Riley running free to the back post. Stover put a lifted ball at the goal that fell just over the crossbar onto the top netting. Pfohl made multiple big saves throughout the second half but Greenville netted an insurance tally with 3 minutes remaining for the final margin.

Joe Danvers and Calvin Ceprish were strong through the midfield as the team fought to the end. Pfohl was named Player of The Match for his outstanding effort in the goal. The team will finish its season at home next week against Shenango Valley.
