The Redskins were at home for a non conference match up with the Springboro Panthers on a cool, damp evening. The boys didn't take long to heat things up. Springboro took the opening kickoff and knocked it back to their center midfielder and Brodie Swallows swooped in and won a loose ball. Patrick Dames picked it up and slipped it right back to Brodie who took a touch past a defender a cracked a shot into the right corner. A dream start for the boys as they go up 1-0 less than 15 seconds into the match! The pressure didn't let up as we won a free kick and Sam Kunkemoeller whipped it in from 25 yards out but it was just wide right. More chances were on the way as Brodie found Sam in space on the left flank and he crossed it in for Brevin Andreadis who hit a volley that was saved well by the keeper. We increased the lead with some excellent build up play with 17 minutes left in the half. Patrick got it started with an entry pass to Brodie and he quickly found Brevin at the top of the box. Brevin returned the ball to Brodie who made no mistake with a super finish into the lower right corner. We managed another chance off a corner kick when Sam's service found Jack at the back post but his header was saved by the keeper and it remained 2-0 at the half.
We started the second half with plenty of energy and possession. Just 2 minutes in Jack had the ball on the right touch line and beat his defender to swing it to Patrick who quickly found Elliot in the center of the park. Elliot slipped it to Sam on the left flank and Sam took it from there when he beat his defender on a cutback and curled a perfectly placed place shot in the right side netting. A really well constructed goal to make it 3-0. We struck again when Elliot picked up a loose ball and played it quickly to Sam who went past one defender and gave it back to an overlapping Elliot. The pass in from Elliot to Jack was excellent as he slammed it home to make it 4-0. We managed a few more chances when Patrick hit a full volley over from 22 yards out and Jack Winkelman followed up on a deflected corner kick with a well hit shot saved by the keeper. Alec Polster came on for Billy Southard in goal after Billy took a knock. Alec did very well as he made a nice save on a long range shot and Ryan Kelley was there to clean up the rebound with a clearance. Alec made 2 more saves to help preserve the shutout. This was a complete game for the Skins was they displayed a strong, organized defense, an energetic and creative midfield, and some high quality finishing. A great team win for the boys as they head into another ECC contest on Thursday, 9/7 against the brand new West Clermont Wolves. Game time is at Brown Stadium.
