Reds Firsts Fire in Hot into Division 2 – Win 8-1 vs. FC Japan

Sep 15 2015 Published by under Reds

The CPR Reds firsts began their campaign as newcomers to Division 2 looking to make a name for themselves. And that they did after beating FC Japan 8-1 who finished last place in Division 2 a year prior.

The Reds came out in a new 4-3-3 high pressure system exploiting the physical advantage they held in size, speed, and number in comparison to the FC Japan squad. They not only held possession but did a good job to hold that possession in the offensive half of the field with the defense mostly being tested down the flanks as the central backs won anything down the middle in the air. The player combinations were delectable, the team play was formidable, the defense impenetrable, and the result….simply stupefying.

Though it may have taken a bit longer than expected to get that first goal of the season, once the first one found the back of the net, the flood gates opened as the Reds poured in 5 first half goals and 3 more in the second half. Perhaps most impressive is that the Reds featured eight different scoring players on the day which if you do the math reveals the fact that the majority of the roster on Sunday put the ball in the back of net…including devoted off target winger Eric Pierot.

The starting lineup for the Reds was as follows: Defense: Blake Berg, Eddie Walter, Sam Emsell, Tim Longeran, Center Mids: Chris Valentine, Declan Heffernan, Felipe Lima Wing Forwards: Quentin Albrecht, Mack Woodruff, Central Striker: Timur Mone. Off the bench was Lance Brune who really played well to hold the ball up in the central mid, Mark Harousseau who impressed scouts in his rookie debut, Andrew Fisher who scored a goal in his rookie debut, Eric Pierot who somehow did score a goal, and Ian Nolan who came in fresh off a 36 hour shift behind the bar.

Goal scorers were:

Mack Woodruff

Blake Berg

Eric Pierot

Andrew Fisher

Quentin Albrecht

Declan Hefnernan

Mark Haroussea

Reds Reserves Begin Season and Division 2 Campaign with 1-1 Draw vs FC Japan

Sep 15 2015 Published by under Reds

After a hard fought season in the Metro 1 division last year, the Reds finished as champions and found

themselves promoted to Division 2, where new talent and opponents await. The Reds brought in some

new players to join the 1st team and the new reserves squad, who began their season against Japan FC

Reserves on Sunday.

The Red Reserves took control of the first half, knocking the ball around and creating some good

chances in front of goal but couldn’t find the back of the net. A strong defense, held together by Aaron

Burke and Duane Pelz, were able to stop any sort of attack. Some good play in the center of the park by

Matthew Hatcher and Justin DeLuca sprung some solid attack. The Reds wanted to take this momentum

into the 2nd half.

The 2nd half started more in favor of Japan FC, as they started to gain some comfort on the ball. With

about 25 minutes to go in the match, the Reds finally had the breakthrough. With some quick ball

movement, Hunter Norte found a seam and played through to new striker, Mamadou Kone, who placed

it into the bottom left corner. With about 10 minutes to play, the Reds found themselves on the back

foot. A foul in the center of the park led to a Japan FC free kick, which was floated into the box, saved off

the bar, and deflected back in to tie the game. It was a devastating blow to the Reds who fought hard all

game.

The final whistle blew with a 1-1 draw. The Red Reserves will look to bounce back next Sunday away

from home against CD Iberia Reserve.

Thanksgiving Weekend Result

Nov 27 2012 Published by under Club

CPR Men’s Red were forced to play a make up game on Thanksgiving Sunday, because Landsdowne requested a bye in September when the game was initially scheduled – very much unfair for us,  and with most players away we lost 5-3.
