Joe Taylor’s Lincoln Revs shone over the memorial day weekend. After a tough opening loss against America FC the boys bounced backed to finish 2 – 1 over the weekend.
In their second game they defeated West Warwick 5-3. Goal Keeper Mitchell Windsor had a great game with help from a strong defensive unit (The Iron Curtain) consisting of captain Matt Keenan, David Idaragga, Julian Silva, and cousins Kobe & Matt Carvalho. Our forwards, once they got the taste of scoring, unleashed a five goal fury against a powerful West Warwick team. Two strong sets of mid-fielders constantly put the opposition under pressure. One line was led by Alex Lopez (center mid),Tysson Sangermano (left mid), and Dylan Polion ( right mid), the other line was led by Spiros Revis (center mid),Aidan Stem (right mid), & Matt “Lope Dog”Lopes (left mid). Quinten Fletcher & Brendan L’Esperance shared duty at the striker position doing a nice job of pressuring the West Warwick defense.
In the third game ” The Iron Curtain” and ” The Greatest Show on Turf ” combined to defeat Smithfield 6 – 0 with six different players scoring the goals. The teams unselfish play and team unity really started to develop by the third game. Coaches Fletcher, Lopez, Lesperance and Carvalho were impressed by the fact that a lot of the boys had never played together before yet played like a true championship team.
