Recap of the seniors trip to Baltimore and New York City.

Some pics can be found here –

Day 1 notes:
Team is now 3-1 after Saturdays games. A good win vs the Edge from Toronto Friday night 8-4 under the lights in historical Johnny Unitas Stadium shook the rust off and opened our play for the weekend.

A sluggish start to the day Saturday vs Resolute from Ohio resulting in an 8-6 loss. Some good work by the Spartans in their first game Sat but sloppy play and poor shooting left us on the wrong side of a game we should have won.

Feature match of the day was on the outstanding soccer field vs Denver Elite. The guys played an outstanding ‘bounce back’ game and after a great start and an 8-0 halftime lead pushed thru the second half and finished with a 14-4 win. The entire team contributed to an excellent team win.

The last game of the day for the boys was vs 3D Mid Atlantic. The boys came out strong and after a few early goals never looked back. Finishing with a 15-1 victory the Spartans walked away from Towson University feeling pretty good about the day but also with a small fire burning knowing they could have/should have been unbeaten.

Day 2 notes:

A Sunday morning loss 10-8 to a Florida team we should have beat. Bounced back with an 8-4 win over a mixed group from Canada, Ohio, and Maryland. Finished with an excellent game against an upstate New York team and tied 9-9. Not perfect but all in all a pretty good weekend. Two losses on each morning that we could have had go the other way. Other than that a pretty successful weekend leaving at 4-2-1.

Next stop New York City!!!
