Two Minutes Costs UWC

UWC Assistant Coach Salie Adams believes a lack of concentration for two minutes in the game cost UWC an unlikely chance of making the semifinals.
 
UWC showed tremendous character when they went had to fight their way back into the game after going down 1-0 to take a 3-2 lead as injury time approached.
 
Despite their best efforts to get the win, it was in the final minutes of the match when their lack of focus cost them leaving The Green Mile with maximum points.
 
"The entire game came down to just two minutes. We lost concentration during injury time and conceded the late goal which denied us the win," he said.
 
The goal sparked some controversy as replays proved inconclusive as to whether or not the ball had crossed the line, despite the best protests from the UWC players.
 
"It was difficult for me to see if the ball crossed the line. But if it didn't, they would have been awarded a penalty. Maybe we would have held onto our lead if that happened but who knows. The ref awarded the goal and the result stands," he added.
 
UWC had only themselves to blame for conceding the other two goals as the defenders watched their opponents latch onto free balls in the box and put it in the back of their net.
 
"With the two other goals, none of the defenders took ownership. Each one thought the other would handle it but that never happened. It's something that can be worked on though," he stated.
 
It's not all bad news for the Cape side as they currently sit on top of the USSA log with three matches still to be played. They will be looking to take their Varsity Football experience into that competition and hope to qualify for next year's tournament.
