However, Omaha put the match away with a goal from Alihodzic at the 67:59 mark and added one more late goal from Emmanuel Hamzat with just 18 seconds left in the match. “A disappointing result tonight,” said Drake head coach Gareth Smith. “Conceding a goal in the first few minutes started us off on the wrong foot and from there on we chased the game. From box to box we were the better of the two teams and there several positives in the game. We had to reshuffle our back line and midfield due a few regular starters missing due to injury and it took some time for their replacements to settle in. That being said, in the key moments we lacked the grit needed to win our individual battles and ultimately that is what decides the game in the penalty box. We own the result tonight and will spend some time analyzing to learn from it in preparation for the game against UWM.” Previewlast_img read more
