Dayton Carroll (OH) 4 Covington Catholic 3


Recommended Posts

The Colonels fall at home to Carroll, a mid-size Catholic school from Dayton with a very solid soccer tradition, but with that said, I thought maybe CovCath would have had enough here to get a better result.  The Colonels fall to 3-5-0 on the season, and have lost 4 of their last 5 (the Highlands road win the loan exception).  You knew this stretch of games would test the rebuilding Colonels, but I'm not sure 1-4 and 5 goals for and 15 against was anyone's expectation.

The Colonels have 3 very winnable games in their next 4, with an evenly matched Cooper squad in that mix as well.  Let's see if Coach Robertson and his staff can instill some confidence in the boys and they can grab some good results to build a little momentum heading into Moeller and others.

The score is wrong in KHSAA, it was actually 4-3. Carroll’s first goal was controversial as their player fouled a cov cath defender to get by, with no call.  Carroll was awarded a PK with one minute to go that was also very controversial. The Colonels controlled the whole game in my opinion. Carroll played a long of long ball.

It is important to score when you are controlling the game. Soccer is one of the few sports where visible domination does not directly correlate to the scoreboard.

It is hard to concede 4 times and still control the whole game. Was Cov Cath vulnerable to the counter attack or was Carroll efficient in front of goal?

Of Carrolls 4 goals the second and third were definitely well deserved. Their first goal could/should have been called back for a foul. The foul that led to the PK in the final minute was a horrendous call. There was zero contact prior to the Carroll player falling to his knees. The defender ran into him while he was falling. The AR was right there and did not make the call. The center Ref was mid field and blew the whistle. Referees are human, and a part of the game. Last night they were just a slightly larger part of it.

Thanks for the extra color, it is much appreciated!  Welcome to BGP, glad you're here.
