NYRBII Home Winning Streak Snapped in 6-4 Loss to Louisville City FC
After a blistering start that saw them get out to a 2-0 lead NYRBII would concede 5 goals in a row to their rivals. Some good adjustments from Louisville and poor defensive play from NYRB II were the causes for the 6-4 defeat.
NYRBII would strike first in this game. Tom Barlow was played in behind and squared to Andrew Tinari who tapped it in for his 7th of the year.
The hosts wouldn’t have to wait long to double their advantage after Lema played Kutler down the wing and the defender ripped a shot past Ranjitsingh.
Louisville City grabbed one back when a deflected header found Ilija Illic and his overhead kick beat Evan Louro to cut the deflect to 2-1.
Louro would make two great saves to keep this game level but Louisville would find the breakthrough. After some poor play out of the back George Davis IV would find Cameron Lancaster and he would beat Louro to tie the score at 2.
Louisville would grab the lead early in the second half after Illic set up Davis who slipped it past Louro to put Louisville up 3-2.
It wouldn’t be long before the visitors increased their lead after Kutler gave away a free kick. Illic’s shot went through a host of people and beat Louro to make it 4-2.
Louisville would continue to pile on as Lancaster grabbed his second off a header from a corner to make it 5-2.
NYRBII were able to grab one back after a scramble in the box, Jose Aguinaga was able to put the ball in the net.
Louisville would add a 6th when Lancaster got in behind and beat Louro to complete his hat trick.
NYRBII would continue to push forward and add a 4th via the penalty spot when Hassan Ndam sent Ranjitsingh the wrong way.
NYRBII drop to 10-7-8 on the year and will have a week off before they play North Carolina FC on Tuesday August 21st.
