The FLL kicked off the second half of the season by matching up the Roadside Armadillos with Hogtowne LC. After being down 4-2 at half, the Dillos were able to find their resolve and team together for an 8-4 second half, winning the game 10-8. The Dillos extend the win streak to 5-0 on the year. An even more impressive 20-0 in FLL play, dating back to 2013 Playoffs. The next test for is a home game against Orlando Geckos, Saturday, Jan 17th.
The Roadside Dillos went 4-0 at the crossover event, hosted by Hogtowne on Dec 6 and 7th. This first games of the season included tough competition for Treasure Coast, FIU, Dade, and Tampa Fuego. The undefeated performance was paced by solid goalie play from both James Tuohy and Nick Colon. The proven and sturdy Dillos defense established themselves early with strong communication and transition play, allowing no more than 5 goals in a game. The new league rule, limiting 5 poles on the field, did not change the aggressive style of play has been a staple of the Dillos for the past few years. Midfield play was the most dynamic it has been in many years, which is not easily said after loosing Bob Stockton. But, the combination of crafty vets like Matt Carey and Tony Brown along with a few fresh faces from Jacksonville University and elsewhere has overwhelmed the competition and looks well suited to carry the team to the promised land. On attack, the usual suspects (Nick Williams, TJ Keanery, Matt Garrow) kept the offense moving and finished on many transition opportunities. The cat is out of the bag, and the rest of the league already fears the mighty Armadillos.
Stay Tuned for more updates and information as the season progresses. The Roadside Dillos will suit up against Hogtowne on January 10th.
