CDLFC vs Charlotte Eagles Preview

Charlotte Eagles visit Cincinnati for South Atlantic Clash

Cincinnati, OH May 23, 2015 – The Cincinnati Dutch Lions PDL team returns to Xavier University for their second game of the 2015 PDL season. The Lions drew 3-3 last Saturday against the Carolina Dynamo. Kickoff this Saturday will be 7:30 PM.

The Lions got off to a hot start last weekend scoring two goals in the first half hour though Kyle Smith headers, only to be leveled up at halftime. The teams would both score one more in the second half to finish 3-3. It provided the Dutch Lions coaching staff many great opportunities to continue to evaluate and build their 2015 squad.

Charlotte joins the PDL for their inaugural season after competing in the USL, finishing second in the league in 2013. Getting off to a hot start, the Eagles under first year coach Dave Dixon, defeated SC United Bantamas 5-0. Scoring three goals in the first half, the Eagles attack will prove to be a formidable test for the veteran Dutch Lions defense.

For Cincinnati Head Coach Terry Nicholl, he reflected on last week while looking forward on how the Eagles will prove to be a very tough test.

“Last week I thought we played very well. We were able to score three great headers, with two coming early in the game to take the lead.   We had great triangles in the midfield, that hopefully we can take into this game. The Eagles will prove to be a very formidable test. Any squad that has an offensive performance like they did has a lot of potential up front.   After giving up three goals after leading by two, that cannot happen again. We have to be prepared to stop their game, while implementing ours on the pitch.”

Tickets can be purchased at the gate for $10.00, with children under 12 costing $5.00. Season tickets can be bought for $40.00 The Xavier University Soccer Complex can be found at 3800 Victory Pkwy, Cincinnati, OH 45229. Gates will open one hour before kickoff.
