Notes from Coach Massena:
Lincoln opened up the scoring in the third minute when Santana Caciedo crossed a ball into Gideon Moranga who one times the ball from 6 yards out. Lincoln would follow up with a second goal just minutes later when again Santana Caciedo crossed a ball from deep on the right flank. The cross found Gideon Moranga who chested the ball and hit a side volley past an outstretched keeper. Lincoln would follow up with a third goal in the 30th minute when Dave Amankawah beat a defender and played Jason Velasquez an easy layoff for a left footed shot that went into the side netting. The half would end at 3-0 LC. We were very happy as a coaching staff with the first half performance. We started 6 guys who had not started a match yet and we asked them to get a good tempo to the game and work the ball into the flanks. In the second half it was all Lincoln again with goals coming from eddy Milien and Ben Frogner who assisted on each other’s goals as well. The best goal of the day was when LC was awarded a penalty kick and LC coach Ben Massena gave the nod to current goalkeeper Daniel Martinez to take the spot kick. Daniel would convert this kick being the first keeper in Massena’s tenure to score during a match.
This moves Lincoln to 4-1.
