Game Recap

Bulldogs Set Down North Ridgeville Rangers 2-0

Kasputis And Chapman Bring The Dogs Home With 1st Half Scores

The Olmsted Falls Bulldogs used a suffocating defense and two key 1st half goals from senior Sam Kasputis and junior Brandon Chapman to win another bruising SWC match on the soggy home pitch. Senior net minder Shelby Edwards earned his 5th shutout on an uneventful night in goal.

The Bulldogs struck within 4 minutes as Senior Captain Ryan Kolonick started a fast break toward the Ranger net. Kolonick fed senior Kevin Lemin who found senior Sam Kasputis in the slot with a header pass. Kasputis punched in a right footer and the Dogs led 1-0.

The Bulldogs started an evening long assault on the Ranger defense and in typical SWC style, the Rangers fought off almost every shot. The Rangers fell back into a defensive stance of nine man fronts within 10 minutes of the opening whistle as seniors Rylan Wikle and Danny Cleary made strong runs all night.

Wikle almost chipped the GK and nearly scored on a pass from Lemin as the Bulldogs put heavy pressure on the Rangers. Senior halfback Charley Watter drew a yellow card on crushing tackle and the free kick by Kolonick was almost knocked in by Cleary.

Senior Mark Ortiz made a fine run and fed a dandy pass to Cleary just turned aside by the Rangers. With 4 minutes left in the half Watters sent a crisp diagonal ball into box for Chapman. The junior midfielder settled the ball with his body and ripped a right footer by the keeper for a 2-0 halftime lead.

The 2nd half was all Bulldogs as the Bulldog defense of All SWC seniors Chase, Mark Ortiz, Joe Bement along with juniors Alex Kleck and Noah Le did not allow a shot on goal by the Rangers for the entire game. The defense played a large part on the almost constant offensive pressure from the Bulldogs. The game was halted with 6:57 remaining for lightning.

Your 5-1 Bulldogs host the first ever meeting with Slyvania Southview this Sat 3pm at the home turf of Olmsted Falls Middle.

Lets Go Bulldogs!
