MADISON, NJ – Scrappy play from Morris Elite was enough to give 9U wolFPack a hard day beating them 3-2. The small choppy field with a bit of unorganized play kept the wolFPack from breaking through most of the day.
A brace for Danny Ewing after a days work was not enough to propel the wolFPack over the home side.
Morris Elite got on the score sheet first through a little bit of luck.
Ewing was able to tie the game up when Peter Garing put a through ball over the defense into Ewing’s path who rocketed it past Elite’s net minder
The celebration didn’t last long as Morris Elite answered back quickly after conceding the goal giving them a 2-1 lead headed into the dressing room.
The second half got under way after the ref took what seemed like a shower on the sideline
The later part of the contest was played in the Morris Elite end of the pitch. The bunched up play from Elite proved trouble for the wolFPack as they could not break through.
Hard work from Ryan Medich helped release Ewing who completed his brace with a shot from inside the 6 to beat the opposing keeper.
“The guy (Medich) is like a locomotive. He doesn’t stop working on the pitch.” said Coach Garing in the post game interview
Although they came up with a loss with some unfortunate goals, the wolFPack defense had a great game lead by Dylan Sugg.
Assistant Coach Paul Ewing was quoted after the game, “He (Sugg) delivered another solid performance for us in the back”
Net minders Nicholas Cicarelli and Mark Perillo made some key saves when they were called upon.
The wolFPack travel down to Springfield next week for a 4:45 PM contest.
