Orange Crush Fizzes Improved Volcanoes
Dateline: October 3, 2009. Vocanoes showed improved play today but failed to capitalize as they lost their third straight game, this time to the Orange Crush.
Volcanoes kept it up for two quarters but, in the third quarter, Volcanoes lost focus with Kunkel playing goalie. Kunkel, looking the other way, simply did not see the Crush attack, and Orange side scored on a good shot.
Steadman and Kunkel again had aggressive, impressive shots on goal in the fourth period, only to be denied by several lucky breaks that fell to the Crush goalie. Of course, the match was interrupted several times to pet a furry fan.
With seconds left in the match, Crush scored a final lucky goal on Esteban, playing goalie, to end the match 3-0.
So far, Volcanoes have failed to score an offensive goal this season which has been a surprise -- the feature good passing, good control, and good shooting but luck simply has not broken their way in a 0-3 start.
