continued After spending last year together as a defensive group, goalkeeper Cody Peck said he’s excited for how much better the defense can become. Through five games, Peck and company have given up only five goals.
“We shut them down pretty well,” Peck said.
C-NS had chances to score the whole night but never made the most of its possessions or set pieces. In the first half, the Northstars had a significant possession advantage, but C-NS head coach Mike McCaffery said that advantage shifted away from the Northstars in the second half.
“The game got a little strung out,” McCaffery said. “(It) got a little back and forth, and we ended up on a long counter-attack giving up a goal.”
With the loss of top-scorer Nick Zingaro to a season-ending ACL injury, Nunn said his team has been forced to adapt and become more balanced. It hasn’t been easy, Nunn said, but the adaption allowed the Warriors to find other playmakers on the offensive end.
After the final whistle blew, Meyers smiled proudly, knowing his goal was the difference in the game. Scoring the game-winner is something he said he’s always dreamed of doing, and against a cross-town rival, the goal was even sweeter.
