The Whites Reserves made the trek to Aviator Sports Complex on the southern tip of Brooklyn to take on United FC under the lights Sunday night. United FC came out of the gate quickly applying the majority of the pressure for the first 10 minutes. As United FC began to tire, the match began to level out. The Whites Reserves slowly saw more and more possession as the half continued and found themselves in complete control towards the end of the half. CPR saw 4 or 5 excellent scoring opportunities come and go without being able to capitalize. United FC’s best chance came on a counter attack where they snuck behind CPR’s back 4 and managed to loft the ball up over a charging Jon, but were denied a goal by Chris Brown sweeping in behind to clear the ball off the line.
The second half was a different story as CPR found themselves going into the wind. United FC enjoyed the majority of the possession and was able to launch a few shots from distance, but were not really able to get behind the back line to create any truly dangerous opportunities. Any efforts they had on goal were effortlessly cleaned up by Jon in net. Just as the White Reserves were regaining their composure and control of possession they caught a break as the ball slipped behind a United FC defender and Jacopo calmly slotted the ball past the keeper. The CPR defense held strong for the rest of the match and were provided with some insurance as Dan C drove in from the left wing, beat the keeper, and tapped it in. Final score 2-0.
