Reds Reserves Draw with NY Ukranians 1-1

Sep 28 2015 Published by under Reds

The Central Park Rangers Red Reserve squad played their 3rd match of the season against the NY Ukrainians Reserves, who have had experience playing in the 2nd division and finished third overall last season. It was an uphill battle from the start for the Reds but about halfway into the 1st half, the Reds broke through with a goal off a corner kick by Hunter Norte. It curled into the far top corner, no chance for the goalkeeper to make the stop.

The Reds defense held strong with good play from center back Parris and fullback Frank Hand. An unfortunate penalty near the end of the first half gave NY Ukrainians an opportunity to tie the game.

The half ended 1-1. More opportunities came as NY Ukrainians looked to be running out of juice and center foward Ian deRuiter found an opening late in the 2nd half but a great save was made by the NY Ukrainians goalkeeper.

The Red Reserves are still looking for their first win and with 2 points from 3 games so far this season, a win could do wonders for the team’s confidence moving into the colder fall months.
