LFCC Men’s Soccer Open 2014 Season

Front Royal, VA – The Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) Lions Men’s Soccer Team kicked off the 2014 Season over the Labor Day Weekend. The Frederick Community College (FCC) Cougars from Maryland came down from the North to play their second game of the young season. The Lions pounced on the Cougars early with a blast from #4 Deni Deyanov from 30 yards out in the 17th minute of play to put LFCC up 1-0.

 In a contest that didn’t see many fouls called, there was a lone yellow card issued to Alex Medrano of Frederick Community College in the 42nd minute. The Cougars clawed their way back into the match and two minutes later in the 44th minute, FCC’s Connor Martin leveled the score at 1-1 off of a direct free kick.

 The two teams came off the field deadlocked at halftime after the LFCC Defense withstood a barrage of attacks from Frederick CC offense that was led by #17 Connor Martin, F, who had 12 shots, 4 shots on net and 2 goals.

Standing tall, in the center of defense was Captain #6, Levi Dofermire (LFCC Captains: #6 Levi Dofermire, #20 Matthew Glickman, #10 Edgar Trajullio) and #20, John (JP) Alger while #7 Austin McGee, #8 John Trelwany and Kevin McGuirk guarded the outsides. “I have to tip my hat to the Defense,” said the Lions’ New Coach Dave Noyes. “They stuck together to grind it out in their first game together. I saw a lot of heart.”

 The LFCC Lions had their chances with 14 shots, 4 on goal with 1 finding the back of the net while the FCC Cougars tallied 21 shots, 9 on goal and landed two in the back of the net.

 The Cougars came out strong again in the second half. Unlike the start of the first half, their efforts were rewarded in the 55th minute when #17 Connor Martin found the back of the net again. The Cougars second goal was assisted by #8, Caleb Olsen.

 Tireless contribution came from the Lion’s Midfield in the narrow defeat – #4, MF, Deni Deyanov; #10, MF, Edgar Trajullio; #19, MF, Travis O’Donnell; #3, MF, Eric Hoyt; #18, MF, Ahmed Hassan; #12 MF, Allesandro Coppola; #11, MF, Daniel Stillwell-Arguello; #2, MF, Ezra King; #15, MF, Evan King.

 Up top, in connection with the Midfield, LFCC saw Captain #20, F, Matthew Glickman and #9, F, Austin Stover create some chances, but they couldn’t put it between the pipes.

 In goal, GK, #1, Zack Houle turned away 7 out of the 9 shots on goal. Houle turned up his level of play in the second half, helping keep the Lions in the game.

 “I think there were a lot of positives that came out of the first game of the season,” said Noyes.

 The Lord Fairfax Men’s Soccer Team will next take on local rivals Christendom College, 4:00pm Thursday, September 4th at the Skyline SoccerPlex, Front Royal, VA.

 They will then be back in action on Saturday, September 6th when they travel to Keyser, West Virginia to play a double header with the LFCC Women’s Soccer Team who open up their 2014 Season against Potomac State College .
