Druid Hills Remains Unbeaten In Region With 8-2 Win Over Mays

On Thursday, the Mays Raiders boys soccer team hosted the Druid Hills Red Devils in a key region match up as the Red Devils came into the match unbeaten in region play, while the Raiders sat at 2-1-1 in the region standings and with a win could stay within striking distance of Druid Hills in the standings. Understanding the magnitude of the match up, the Red Devils came out aggressive early, something Druid Hills head coach, Thomas Bodnar, said was a need to do.

“It’s always important when you’re playing a region match to try and dominate from the beginning. I thought we knocked the ball around well, created space out of good two and three touch passing to try to exploit their shape, so I was pretty pleased with the first 35 minutes of the game,” Bodnar said after Thursday’s win. The dominance of the Red Devils would lead to six first half goals and with solid backline defensive play, Druid Hills would have a 6-1 lead at the break.

In the second have, the Red Devils aggressiveness slowed down, only producing two second half goals, and Bodnar noted that he felt his team “got a little sloppy in pieces” which attributed to the less offensive dominance displayed in the second half, adding that in moments such as that, he wants his team to learn from their mishaps. “Of course, part of your learn is when you make mistakes, try to correct them and not repeat them again,” Bodnar said. The Red Devils continued to hold their own in the second half only allow one more Mays goal as Druid Hills picked up the 8-2 win.
