CDLFC vs SC United Bantams Preview

Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC Return Home Following Away Victory

 Cincinnati, OH June 10, 2015 – The Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC returns home to the Xavier University Soccer Complex after a successful trip to Southern West Virginia King’s Warriors last weekend. Kyle Martin and Jacob Meyer provided the fireworks for the Lions last weekend, scoring one each to secure the Lions first victory of the 2015 campaign. It was also the first shutout of 2015 for the Lions.

Coming home to face South Carolina United Bantmas twice in three days will be a critical stretch of the season for the Lions. Five games into the season, the Lions sit in fourth place with four points, but two wins against SC United could provide a major boost to the Lions standings. It will be a tough task however, as SC United has a very talented roster featuring players from many top universities in the region.

David Kenga is serving in his first year as head coach for SC United. A native of Kenya, Kenga played in the PDL for the Indiana Invaders and in the USL for the Charleston Battery. He also has one cap for the Kenyan national team to his name. SC United is tied with the Dutch Lions for fourth place.

Head Coach Terry Nicholl had this to say reflecting on last week and the matches this week.

“Its very important after a win to carry that momentum into our next game. It was great as well to get our first shutout of the season. We cleaned up the back four, and they had a strong performance. With SC United coming to town, we know it will be a tough task. There is lots of parody in the PDL, just look at how our opponent last weekend was undefeated. You can’t look at a teams record and assume anything. Every game we need to come out and give it our all.”

The Xavier University Soccer Complex can be found at 3800 Victory Pkwy, Cincinnati, OH 45229. Single game tickets are available at the gate for $10.00. Kids under 12 cost $5.00. Season passes are available for $20.00 for our remaining home games.
