Game Recap

Greensburg was on the road Tuesday to visit the Jac-Cen-Del Eagles and fell 5-2. The Pirate defense held tough for the first 23 minutes of action, limiting shots and containing Jac-Cen-Del’s attack. A miscommunication between defenders lead to the Eagles’ first goal of the first half. The next two goals were scored on an indirect free kick inside the 6 yard box and a penalty kick respectively. Despite being down 3-0, Greensburg fought back and senior forward David Santiago was able to score before the end of the first half on the assist from Joseph Pacilio. Down 3-1 at halftime, the Pirates came out strong again, only to be matched by another goal from Jac-Cen-Del, this time on a shot from 25 yards out that ricocheted off the crossbar and in. The Pirates kept fighting and David Santiago found the back of the net again off of a beautiful cross from Joseph Pacilio. Before the game ended, Jac-Cen-Del scored one more goal to put the Pirates away for good. Lots of improvement seen from the Pirates both offensively and defensively in the loss.
