Bridges FC Earns a Draw with FC Utrecht Reserves 1 – 1

On Tuesday, July 24, 2012, Bridges FC played to a 1 – 1 draw with FC Utrecht Reserves (Eredivisie).  It was another hard fought match.  Bridges got on the board first in the 16th minute when Prince Lapnet played a through ball to Mike Tobie, who beat the keeper to the ball and played an early ball into the goal from 25 yards.  FC Utrecht showed their technical ability throughout the match as they moved the ball quickly out of the back line.  Bridges was able to step up in pressure and good defending throughout the 1st half and into the 2nd half.  However, in the 75th minute, Utrecht evened the score as a ball was played into the box for a full volley finish into the right upper corner of the goal.  Throughout the 2nd half, Bridges continued to get dangerous scoring chances, however we were unable to convert them into goals.  This was heightened during the last 15 minutes of the match, as we continued working the ball through and over the back line of FC Utrecht trying to go ahead in the final minutes.  The match ended on a Bridges corner kick that was unsuccessful.

Again, this was a positive match for Bridges FC.  Our players played with conviction and perseverance throughout the match.  Defending again was crucial to our play.  There were good opportunities to create combination play through possession that turned into good chances on goal.  We continue to learn and develop ability to play against very high levels of competition and very fast speed of play.

Yesterday we travelled to Denmark, where we will be for the remainder of the trip.  Tonight (Thursday, July 26, 2012) we play HB Koge at 7:00 pm Denmark Time.  HB Koge is a Partner Club with Bridges FC and we look forward to an exciting match this evening.
