The Redskins travelled to Moeller to battle the 5th ranked Crusaders in their first road game of the year. Anderson was off to a good start with some good build up play that resulted in Patrick Dames getting off a shot only to see it slide wide right. Moeller responded with a shot on frame that Billy Southard smothered with a good save. We managed to threaten again at the 27 minute mark when right back Adam Greer sent a nice service into the box but Joey Buscani's header went over the target. Moeller struck first in the 22nd minute when they won an indirect free kick just 8 yards from goal as the result of dangerous play. The Crusaders converted when they took a touch and then slammed it past our wall of defenders to make it 1-0. They came close to making it 2-0 when they broke down the right side and pulled it back to get a shot off but Billy did very well to make the save diving to his left. The half would end 1-0 with Moeller in front.
> The second half did not start too brightly for us as we gave up a corner kick 5 minutes in and the Crusaders capitalized by hammering a header home to up the lead to 2-0. The Skins battled back and launched a number of attacks but could not break through a well-organized, disciplined Moeller defense. Sam and Elliot had a nice exchange that resulted in some space for Jack to get a shot off, but no luck as the ball bounced just wide of the left post. Brevin got on the end of a corner kick from Joey but couldn't keep it on frame as it sailed over the top. One of our last chances to get on the board came in the last 2 minutes when Patrick shrugged off his defender and threaded a past in to Sam who hit a shot with pace on goal but the Moeller keeper had it covered. The Crusaders kept us off the board and walked away with a well-deserved 2-0 victory. Up next for the boys is the first ECC game of the year as they travel to Withrow to take on the Tit 7:00PM.
