Conner Senn Recap

April 30, 2008

The Conner Senn match was a success any way you look at it. Over 2200 people attended the game and $30,000 was raised to further the endowment of the Conner Senn Memorial Scholarship. The Crew also scored a 4-1 victory, fielding a team of reserves.

The first half lineups:

————–Lenhart——–Garey————–

Hernandez—Ekpo—Miglioranzi——Evans

Peterson——Ezra——–Iro————Miller

———————Schoeni———————-

Ekpo pushed up to an attacking role with Miglioranzi playing a holding role.

The second half lineups (minute they subbed in):

———-Josten-(66)——-So-(66)————-

Hernandez–Perez-(79)–Miglioranzi–Evans

Junge-(57)—Ezra——Iro——-Zayner-(57)

—————-Gruenebaum-(45)—————

Garey scored two goals in the first half off of passes by Lenhart. The first goal was offside by a couple of yards, but was missed by the linesman. Even being up 2-0 at half the team did not look that good. The Crew stepped it up a little in the second half. So came in and attacked, dribbling at defenders. He setup the third goal by attacking toward the right corner and launching a cross to Josten. Josten then finished the scoring by picking up a loose ball and firing it home.

On the positive end of things, Ekpo looked pretty good on the ball. His touch was pretty good and he played a couple great through balls. He also uncorked a couple long range shots, one ringing off the crossbar. He looks like he could be a great player and very hard to keep out of the first 11. So showed the desire to attack and go at players. He also had the skill to back it up.

Several players really did not put in good performances, Lenhart turned the ball over quite a bit and Hernandez looked a combination of uncomfortable, unfit, or slow out on the left wing. Evans really did not do much in the 90 minutes either.

The above were notable for either good or bad reasons; I really did not notice the rest of the team. There was not much flow to the game and the Crew really only showed their class for about 10 minutes in the second half. It was a good opportunity to get the reserves some minutes for a good cause.
