The Eagles played some great soccer, creating numerous chances and scoring 2 goals. But that was not enough as Dundee-Crown got 2 of its own goals and prevailed in Penalty Kicks. Evan Larsen scored both Eagle goals and was assisted Tim Pollak and Dan Djendic.
The Eagles played a fine first half that resulted many fine chances to score. But the second did not go well as Highland Park took advantage of their opportunities to knock 3 goals to defeat the Eagles in the season opener.
In the second game of the season, the Eagles gave up a goal in the first 2 minutes of the game. The Eagles struggled in the first half but fortunately tied the score when Evan Larsen alertly saw the Lake Forest Keeper way off his line and shot the ball into the goal from 40 yards out. The second half saw the Eagles dominate play and get the lead on a nice build-up through the field that culminated in a goal by Brady Lucas from a nifty assist from Evan Larsen. Then Brady Lucas scored again when he intercepted the ball 40 yards from goal and dribbled past four Scout defenders and placed his shot neatly in the lower left corner for the 3rd goal of the game. The final Lakesâ€™ goal came on a pk by Brady Lucas when Elian Meir was brought down in the penalty area.
