Bridges 0 Lyngby 2
Lyngby, Denmark – Playing their fifth game in eight days, Bridges F.C.’s second team took on second division side Lyngby in a friendly contest. With no time to waste, Lyngby went to work looking to finish early. In only the 5th minute, a cross from the wide area found a striker who hit a bullet that sailed just over the frame. With early confidence, Lyngby looked to continue pressing, creating chances in the 8th and 12th minutes as well; seeing each strike go just wide of the frame.
But Bridges would bounce back. Good possession in the midfield by Alen Husidic, Cory Weaver, and Geison Moura created balls in behind the Lyngby defense, where strikers Kieron Keane and Leslie Osei took their own chances on frame in the 15th and 21st minute respectively.
Even possession each way saw teams build effective attacks from the back only to have dangerous opportunities snuffed out by opposing defenders. Marking backs Alvin Hudson and J.C. Aikenhead proved to be up to the task while center back Marcos Morales was able to take care of anything else snuck through. Bridges entered the half even, looking to come out of the gate hungry for a goal.
Second half play was quite even with neither defense budging. It wasn’t until the 61st minute when a Lyngby midfielder sent a ball into the area where his teammate was able to get a head on the ball and put it to the upper corner where goalkeeper Nemanja Kostic had no chance of saving it.
In the 72nd minute Bridges were awarded a free kick on the right flank. Midfielder John Devae sent a ball into the area where Geison Moura was able to get a sliding foot on it. Moura had the keeper beat, but fortunately for Lyngby a well placed defender on the back post was there to knock it away.
The missed chance would prove costly as Lyngby would possess down the field and find a striker on the left side. The forward struck the ball for the left corner where Kostic was able to get a hand to it. The ball however bounced inside the six, and before anyone from Bridges could clear, a crashing run by the home side was rewarded with a goal moving them ahead 2-0.
With nothing mounting for either side in the final 15 minutes, the center official blew his whistle signaling full time. Bridges will look to rebound on Sunday against Danish side Roskilde at 13.00.
