Glen Floors played Downtown Café on a rainy Friday night. Everyone was excited to play under the bright stadium lights as it was Division 1B’s first night game. Downtown Café scored the first goal of the game surprising Glen Floors. Glen Floors came back with a goal by John Michael Ktistakis from the midfield. Both teams appeared evenly matched and kept the ball moving back and forth from offense to defense. Great defense was played by Ktistakis, Gino Gallizzi and Noah Kopetic who repeatedly tried to stop Downtown Cafe’s fastest player. Glen Floors succeeded in scoring two other goals by Christopher Gielbeda. Skillful passing by Matthew Basil and Noah Capps assisted Gielbeda with scoring. The Glen Floors boys hustled the entire evening and were able to prevail with a 1-goal lead by the end of the game. Great job Glen Floors!
After a strong start Christian Bifano worked the ball down the field to get our first goal of the day. Christian was able to make the goal with ease as a result of quick teamwork from all. McDonalds proved to be a worthy opponent as they had 2 goals of their own. Mauraders used their ability to pass the ball which was a leading reason for our win. Sophia Paulich kept good control over the ball as she drove it down field where Grayson Kopetic was waiting to send it in for a goal. Most improved player was Juliette Renaldo as she dribbled with control allowing Christian to land a final goal of the day.
Off a tough victory the night before, Glen Floors lost their first game of the season to Greenberg & Greenberg Attorneys at Law with a 5-4 loss. Even with a muddy field, Glen Floors John Michael Ktistkasis was able to stop numerous charges by Greenberg’s offense with assistance from Lucas Mattern and Gino Gallizzi. Equally matched in skill and speed, Christopher Gielbeda plowed through Greenberg’s defense with two goals. Each teams’ players were literally colliding to score and at one point Matthew Basil shot the ball into the net after a four man pile up. Exemplary play in the midfield was shown by Noah Capps and Rodni Leftwich who were able to turn the ball around before Greenberg could continually head to the net. One of the last goals of the game was a beautiful play where Basil skillfully passed to Glen Floors open player Noah Kopetic who in turn shot and scored. Although Greenberg outscored Glen Floors all had a great time and exhibited stellar teamwork.
In a rematch between Glen Floors and Kornerstone Publik House, the teams played an exciting game. Gino Gallizzi started the game on fire scoring twice with assists from Matthew Basil and Lucas Mattern. The defense held strong with frequent midfield turnovers by Noah Capps and Rodni Leftwich. John Michael Ktistakis was Glen Floors quickest defender of the game stopping every attempt at a goal except when a stray ball entered the field! Christopher Gielbeda and Noah Kopetic also put the ball in net with impressive skills and assists from Basil.
