JV Soccer - Boys vs. Pomfret School
Event Type: Regular
Date: October 12, 2011
Event Recap:
LC 5 – 1 Pomfret Wednesday October 12th, 2011

Just twelve minutes into the game LC found themselves down a goal and needing to adjust to the pace of the game. The pitch was bumpy and small and the pressure from Pomfret came far too quickly to play the slow-down, ten-touch game we were insistent upon playing. It wasn’t until the introduction of Ben Alziari, John Fundock and Lukas Odermatt into the center of midfield that we Pelicans began to really control the game. Lukas set the tone with his powerful tackles and simple passes. Alziari and Fundock set the pace with a settle, pass, move rhythm that quickly infected the whole team. In the 32nd minute Fundock won the ball and quickly found Alziari in space. Alziari’s second touch was a perfectly weighted ball over the top for hard-charging Henry Tobin who got to the ball an instant before the keeper. His looping volley found the back of the net and knotted the score at one a piece.

Minutes after half time the Pelicans broke through again when sophomore Anderson Huang worked the ball down the right flank and played a low, driven ball into the box. Max Groen’s delayed run was timed to perfection and he calmly passed the ball past Pomfret’s keeper to put the Pelicans on top. Captain Max Groen was again involved ten minutes later when he sprayed the ball wide to freshman Kyle Douglas. Douglas played the cross first time and Henry Tobin was there to collect and play John Fundock in for the goal that would surely put the contest out of reach.

In the final minutes freshman Camden McCusker made his mark on the game. Playing with his back to goal as a lone striker McCusker used a first touch with his chest to settle. His second touch was a beautifully weighted volley into space that Alex Buis ran onto and crossed back into the center for McCusker who controlled the ball and beat the keeper with the dribble. Minutes later McCusker added a final tally – an exclamation point on the end of a very fine half of soccer.

Despite all the scoring the backline, which included Benzi Edelson, Ben Caccavale, Harrison Fisher, Harry Gilpin, Kevin Cha, Jamie Cox and their leader, David Calafiore, deserve a great deal of credit for a dominating performance that helped preserve the win.
