Vortex Fall in Final Home Match
Midfielder Rick King's two goals were just not enough as the Ohio Vortex fell to the Louisville Lightning by an 11-4 margin.
The Vortex (2-11) have failed to gain consistency in play due to injuries, illnesses, and departures. A makeshift squad that included head coach/defender Denzil Antonio did its best to slow down the Lightning attack, but did so with little success.
Mariano Gonzalez finished with a hat trick for Louisville (6-6), while teammates Darren Yeagle and Nick Judah each added a pair of goals. Frank Peabody was solid in goal for the Lightning, finishing with 15 saves.
The Vortex defense was led by defender Jared Dombrowski (4 blocks) and goalkeeper Sasha Djuric (16 saves). The Canton, Ohio club now finishes the regular season on the road after what has been a difficult sophomore season in PASL-Pro.
