CPR Reds: 3
Manhattan Celtic: 1
M.O.M. – Hunter Norte
Nice way to start the season for the reserves! There was some good hustle all around and we were able to limit a very experienced opponent to only a few chances at goal. Let’s chalk up that one goal they had against us to new guys learning to play together. In all, we kept it locked up in the back, stayed strong in the middle and had some great hustle up top as well.
Man of the Match honor has to go to our two-goal scorer Hunter, whose pinpoint and OBVIOUSLY purposeful olimpico had side netting written all over it from the minute he woke up yesterday morning and started his devious plan to make the opposing keeper look a bit silly. Special mentions to Trip with the heavy workload up top keeping constant pressure on Celtic’s backline and Haggerty controlling the middle of the field for big stretches of the match. Shoutout goes out to Gerry (aka Mr Versatility) for playiing literally every position on the pitch except the backline.
