Nighthawks have best game, same result
The Nighthawks looked like the team we thought they could be at the beginning of the year. They played their best game of the year by far, but fell just short 8-7. The Nighthawks looked unstoppable in the first half as they jumped out to a 5-0 lead. Goals were scored by John Mosley (2), Saxon Feravich, Andrew Willis, and Luke Bahrou. Mike Roos had an amazing game in net, making some unbelievable saves. His great goalkeeping was a huge boost for this team. Los Hooligans scored with under 30 seconds to go in the half, and that seemed to be the momentum changer. In the second half, the Nighthawks were outscored 7-2 (goals by John Mosley and returning Canadian Conor Milroy). The 1-3-1 style the Nighthawks switched to this game seemed to work. It is a new defense so it will get better in the games to come. The one thing they need to watch for is the back-door cuts, and rebounds. That is how a number of goals were scored from for Los Hooligans. Saxon said he was happy with his team's performance, but in the same regard disappointed with the loss. "We seem to finally have a plan to play this game, I just hope next week the ball bounces are way," Saxon said. The Nighthawks showed a lot of improvement in this game, and first the first time all season they were having fun playing. We will see if they can keep confidence for the game next week.
