North East, PA – The ASA Brooklyn Avengers men's soccer team travelled to North East, PA to play their final game of the regular season against Mercyhurst North East.
After experimenting with different lineups with the arrival of the core of the roster, the Avengers had their most success yet on the offensive end. From the beginning of the game, the Avengers had control of the ball 70 to 80% of the game. The Avengers looked better organized in both the back and the midfield. Throughout the game, the Avengers had 18 shots on goals, but simply couldn't convert. One of these shots on goals came late in the 2nd half, and again with the goalkeeper in the Avengers sights, the team was unable to convert. Off the counter-attack, Mercyhurst North East was able to score a goal when the Avengers defense wasn't yet set with 11 minutes left in the game. The Avengers had a few more shots on goals to tie the game, but wasn't able to convert the opportunity.
After playing their final game of the regular season, the ASA Brooklyn Avengers will be the 2019 Region XV men's soccer championships in a rematch against the Monroe College Mustangs on October 25th, 2019 in New Rochelle.
