Falcons bashed by Rock Hill

The Nation Ford Falcons did not have a "good result on the scoreboard" last week after its game against Rock Hill ended in a 7-1 loss.

"We played some really good soccer, especially in the first half," said head coach Chris Davidovicz. "We were frustrating them a good bit, finding lanes and picking them apart in the back."

Unfortunately, the Falcons just couldn't seem to net a goal until sophomore Shannon Lucas fired one off a counter attack.

"Great build up off a counter attack, big diagonal ball to right side, ball taken to end line, crossed in knocked down by their defenders, Shannon rocketed a shot into the top net off one time from the rebound," Davidovicz said.

Short two of their top players the Falcons tried to keep up its play. The first half ended 3-1 in Rock Hill's favor, but Nation Ford seemed to lose its stamina in the second half.

"Overall I was pleased with our play," Davidovicz said. "We are a good team that can play some very nice soccer at times."

The Falcons are still proving to be a shy team, and are "still not yet playing aggressive enough."

"It was good at times, some guys made some very nice, clean tackles," Davidovicz said. "We are continuing to work and grow and we know that these trials we produce perseverance, character and hope."
