The REVs fall in lopsided loss

CUMBERLAND — The concept is simple: A stronger offense gives a team’s defense and goalie more time to rest and be ready when the ball comes their way.

The REVs’ starting goalie was under fire from the opening kick.

On Tuesday night, there was no rest for the weary, and that simple concept was complex in execution for The REVs as they were shut out by the Ball Busters 6-0 in U12 Recreational indoor soccer at the Cumberland YMCA.

In Recreational division play, the score is stopped when the margin is about six goals. In reality, it was a double-digit loss for The REVs, who were coming off their first win of the season last week.

The Ball Busters held a 3-0 lead at halftime. The floodgates opened early in the second half, as the Ball Busters scored about every two minutes to double their lead. The REVs’ defense tired, and the starting goalie was ambushed by a barrage of shots by the Ball Busters.

Teamwork, including smooth passing and communication between teammates, helped propel the Ball Busters to a shutout victory.

Conversely, The REVs managed only two shots on goal in the second half. The REVs simply had no answer for their opponents.

The REVs dropped to 1-3 in the nine-game season. The team next plays on Dec. 14 (vs. the Rams), Dec. 21 (Frankfort Rebels), Dec. 28 (Morans Lawncare), Jan. 4 (Storm) before concluding their season Jan. 11 against the Frankfort Talons.
