In a fast paced match, Deltona found themselves down 1-0 at the half, fighting off a lightening fast offense. The second half opened with an engineered defense line steal on the opponents start, which was played to the right side midfielder, Martinez who played to the end line and launched a cross to Fuentes and Mayr on the back post where Fuentes headed home a game tieing goal. This was quickly followed 3 minutes later with a second cross from Martinez to the back post where Mayr knocked home the go ahead goal. A few moments later Fuentes intercepts a pass and dribbles up the endline and places the ball inside the near post to move the game to 3-1. The deluge had begun. Fuentes added a third dribbling goal to make it 4-1. Jose Martinez netted the first of his two with a direct kick from outside the 18 which is placed low and hard into the left side netting, 5-1. Jose adds his second, intercepting a 6 kick and taking it back to goal for 6-1. Richardson follows up on a long distance shot, separates the keeper from the ball, shields the keeper away, before spinning back to the goal and tucking Deltona’s 7th into the back of the net. Bombka followed with a deep penetration from midfield into the box for a solid shot, however it was a follow-up from Parslow that tucked the rebound away for an 8-1 lead. Keeper Phillips came out to skunk a one on one goal scoring opportunity at the top of the box. The opposition did succeed to find the net once more to make it 8-2. Mayr would have netted his second on another Martinez cross, however the goal was called back due to offsides call. Rodriquez turned in a solid defensive day, as he played his first match with the team following a early season broken arm. Lightening closing speed and good decisions makes Rodriquez a strong addition to Deltona’s defensive depth. Schindler, Dietz, and Sierra hunted down and turned a bevy of past paced attacks with high success. For Martinez today was a breakout day with 2 Goals and 2 Assists, but most importantly an exhibit of the efforts he has invested in restructuring his shot from a high ball shot to a low solid well targeted rocket. This was no accident, but the result of a season’s effort. Today’s game exhibited a mature confidence in the team’s ability. Good all around performance.
The past few weeks have seen a viral infection sweep through the team. Mayr-2 did not play today as he continues to recover. Miller and Rose were both out this week with the same. We look forward to having them back.
