Game Recap 10/3 vs Charlotte Country Day
The Lions went into this afternoon's encounter attempting to get back to winning ways, after a disappointing outing on Tuesday. The early exchange suggested the Lions were up for the fight as they dominated possession but were unable to test the Country Day keeper in the first half. Drama ensued at the end of the first half as Country Day launched an attack and unleashed a shot in the dying seconds which sailed into the back of the net. Fortunately the goal was called off as it crossed the goal line after the first half whistle blew. Ten minutes into the second half, the Bucs got their goal as their forward connected with a through ball and fired the ball into the net. This did not deter the Lions as they kept probing for an equalizer which arrived with 9 mins left on the clock. Andrew Futch squared the ball to Cole Williams who spun expertly away from his defender and accelerated towards goal. Williams picked his spot and placed the shot beyond the keeper into the back of the net. Not to be outdone, the second half had its own dramatic spin. With less than10 seconds on the clock, Caleb Hylton found Seth Novoselich, who confidently struck the ball across the keeper and into the back of the net with 3 seconds left on the clock to secure a 2-1 win.

Our Covenant Day Lions entered the game vs Holy Trinity in an optimistic mood, which was reflected in their early play. The first ten minutes saw the Lions start the game on the front foot as they put pressure on the defense of Holy Trinity. Unfortunately the early dominance of the Lions did not pay dividends. Holy Trinity took the lead midway through the first half, as the Bulldogs' forward showed great pace by breaking through the Lions' defensive line to secure a 1-0 lead going into the half. The second half had a similar feel to the first as the Lions kept pushing forward for an equalizer. Their endeavors were not fruitful, and even though CDS had the lion's share of possession, it was the Bulldogs who notched a goal late in the second half, leaving the Lions empty-handed as they suffered a 0-2 loss.
