Greensboro beats Black M.O.B.
After a poor first half effort Coach Chris Fields lit into his team at halftime. The Vipers players came out of the locker room focused and motivated, and netted 5 unaswered goals in the 2nd half to beat the home Black M.O.B. squad. Ricardo Budel started off the 2nd half with a 46th minute diving header goal, and as the star striker said, it just snowballed from their. Jason Callinan put the 2nd Greensboro goal in during a 70th minute charge, and midfielder River La Rosa headed in the 3rd Greensboro goal of a cross in the 76th minute. After a quick change of possession, Budel recieved a cross and headed in the 4th Vipers goal, Budel's 2nd of the match. Muhammed Wilmot who got the start at forward in place of a tired Juwan Sturgis finished off the 2nd half goal scoring jamboree with an 86th minute header off of a corner piece. The win, Greensboro's 5th of the season, held Greensboro's spot in the league table at 3rd. The club now has an overall record of 5-1-1, and 4-0-0 on the road. Keeper Janiel Veldon only had to come up with 2 saves, and secured his 5th clean sheet of the season. Veldon and a strong Vipers Defense have combined to form a steal curtain of sorts, allowing only 3 goals so far in the season. The Vipers not only lead the league in fewest goals allowed, but the 2nd place team has allowed more than twice as many goals. Greensboro starts off a tough 4 game stretch tomorrow with Chelsea USA visting Greensboro FC Stadium for an 11pm kickoff.
