12U travel league
Concord FC 1, Alden 0
Concord FC’s 12U boys team started the season on the road in Alden. Many of Concord’s players are returning from their undefeated season from last year, and were looking to continue that success this year. Concord’s lone goal was scored in the second half by Anthony Piede, who also had many other good scoring chances in the game. Henry Leone had a great strike from distance that Alden’s goalie made a stellar save on. The clean sheet was shared by Condord’s two netminders, Aiden Czekanski and David Girdlestone, who made an excellent save to preserve the shutout in the second half. The defense was excellent all day, backing each other up and keeping Alden’s chances minimal. The defensive starters consisted of Nathan Mays, Gavin DeLong and Anthony Bautista. Also contributing excellent on defense was Bradon Gustafson and Jude Murphy. Eli Greenough won the hustle award for his excellent work at midfield.
Aurora Arsenal 4, Concord FC 3
Concord FC’s 12U boys team had a disappointing result at Aurora, losing their first regular season game by a late goal at East Aurora. Concord started the game dictating play, getting multiple early chances and keeping the ball in Aurora’s third for the first part of the game. That resulted in a great goal by Naisaih Rodriguez. A direct kick goal and a breakaway goal put Aurora up 2-0 at the half. Concord came back to take the lead with goals by Anthony Piede and Henry Leone, but suffered the defeat by allowing the next two goals without a reply. Aiden Czekanski suffered the defeat in net. Playing excellent outside defense was Gavin DeLong.
