Varsity Boys Soccer Edged
The Oswego varsity boys soccer team suffered its third loss of the season in a hard fought 3-1 game at Utica Proctor on Thursday afternoon.
The first half saw Proctor control much of the possession as the Bucs had a stiff wind blowing into their faces which made it difficult for them to clear the ball. With 23:15 remaining in the opening half Armin Budnjo redirected a pass to the foot of Adis Dervisevic who blasted a shot past Oswego goalie Matt Skinner.
The score remained the same through the end of the half.
In the second half, with the wind at their back, the Bucs began to take control of the game. Then with 21:28 remaining in the game the Bucs finally broke through when Jamie Reynolds slotted a nicely paced ball through to Stephen Auyer who raced in on the Proctor goal. As the Proctor goalie came out at Auyer he calmly toe poked the ball past the keeper to tie the game at 1-1.
The Bucs saw a majority of the action for remainder of the half, until with 7:12 remaining in the game Armin Budnjo found himself open with the ball just inside the Buc 18 yard box and was able to find the back of the net to give Proctor a 2-1 lead.
At that point Oswego began to press to get the tying goal which at times left them exposed at the back. With just under a minute to go in the game the Bucs were whistled for a foul just outside their 18 yard box. On the ensuing play Andy Mendez sent a ball into the box that Skinner got a hand on but was not cleared. The ball came down to Yo Yoh who put it in the net to provide the final 3-1 margin. Skinner finished the game with 8 saves, two of which he took of the foot of a Proctor player who had broken through on a breakaway.
OswegoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s next game is Tuesday 9/29 on Turrill Street field against FM at 7pm.
