Crusaders Open Season Against Walnut Hills
Moeller Soccer vs Walnut Hills at Gerry Faust Athletic Complex - The match started off to a frantic pace back and forth between two of Cincinnati's top 10 ranked soccer teams (#8 Moeller and #9 Walnut Hills). The excitement of the new season was evident in both teams and Walnut Hills was able to capitalize. Two Walnut Hills long throw-ins found their way into the back of the net after failed attempts to clear the ball resulted in two own goals against the Crusaders in the 9th minute and the 14th minute. Moeller settled into the match and created dangerous opportunities but were unable to score before the half.
Moeller continued to create chances and Walnut Hills threatened on long throw-ins and counter attacks but were unable to find the back of the net. In the 67th minute Moeller scored off a long service
(assist) from Mark Bugada to find Henry Myers for his first goal of the season. Walnut Hills goalkeeper continued to make big saves and the match ended without further scoring. Moeller led in shot attempts with a 19 to 8 count but Walnut Hills won the match 2-1.
