Cinnaminson boy’s soccer took on rival Delran this afternoon trying to improve their record, but suffered a tough loss, 3-0.
Their overall record moves to 2-4-1 on the season and 2-3 in the Liberty Division.
The game started out intense from the start, as every rival game always is. Cinnaminson had the first scoring opportunity as Ryan Mahaffey was robbed of a goal after Delran made a great defensive play.
Delran came back and scored on a cross for the first goal of the game in the first half.
From that point on, the Pirates couldn’t find the right stuff.
Delran scored another one in the first half to make it 2-0.
“It wasn’t our best effort and ended in a poor result, if we keep working hard it will pay off,” senior keeper Mike Deal said.
“Hard work and dedication always pays off in the end. We can come back from this and we will be better next game.”
Delran extended the lead in the second half to make it 3-0. Cinnaminson couldn’t find any answers on offense the remainder of the game and finished with a 3-0 loss.
It was the first shutout loss of the season for the Pirates.
Coach Jay Miele had this to say on today’s loss, “I think a few guys played well, but, unfortunately the coaching staff hasn’t figured out the best 11 to play together as a complete team.”
When asked about next match he said, “We play another tough opponent on Thursday with Northern Burlington (division game). We will have to try a few guys in different spots to find our best 11 and have to focus on this upcoming game. We can’t look beyond Thursday.”
The Pirates travel to division rival Northern Burlington on Thursday, September 29 at 3:45pm.
