Bay Area Ambassadors Defeat the North Coast Tsunami
Oakland, CA (May 6, 2012)- The Bay Area Ambassadors (Ambassadors) capture their first three points of their National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) season against the North Coast Tsunami (Tsunami). The Ambassadors put together their best offensive and defensive efforts of the season to secure the 3-0 win.
The Ambassadors put the Tsunami on their heels from the very beginning of the game. The Tsunami struggled to keep the all and get the ball out of their defensive half because of the possession and pressure of the Ambassadors. The first goal would come off a pass from Emrah Klimenta. Klimenta found himself in behind the defense but chose to pass the ball across to Javier Hill who scored the first goal of the season. The Ambassadors continued moving the ball from left to right waiting for another opening to score a goal. Klimenta headed home the second goal off a corner kick from Stefan Clemens. More chances would be created, but the score remained 2-0 at the end of the first half.
The second half was played much like the first. The Ambassadors did not lose a step during the halftime break. They struck early as Clemens headed home a superb cross from new addition Dylan Murphy. The Ambassadors kept control of the game even as the Tsunami tried to press forward to somehow score a goal. The Ambassadors would finish the game with ten men as Yousef Samy received a red card after a questionable call from the referee. The game ended 3-0 in favor of the Ambassadors.
The Ambassadors to a huge step forward in reaching the great potential they have. They played collectively and can only continue to get better. “We are very pleased with this performance, it was very positive,” said coach Mohammed Mohammed. “We obviously still have things to improve and need to remain hungry.”
The Ambassadors will be in action against the San Diego Flash this weekend. The game will be played in San Diego. Look for updates on the Ambassadors’ website (www.fcbayarea.com) and Twitter (@baafc).
