Vortex Suffer 10th Loss
The Ohio Vortex (2-10) suffered a 14-7 loss at the hands of the Louisville Lightning (5-6) on Saturday evening.
Louisville was led by midfielder Darren Yeagle, who finished with three goals and one assist. Striker David Horne and former Houston Dynamo midfielder John Michael Hayden each added two goals and two assists for the Lightning.
Forward Pete Angelokostopoulos led the Vortex with two goals with five other Ohio players adding one goal apiece.
The match was tight in the first half with the two squads tied 6-6 going into the break. The Lightning attack came alive after halftime, scoring five goals in the third quarter and another three in the fourth.
The Vortex managed just one goal in the entire second half. Ohio was once again without leading scorer Allen Eller and their offense was sluggish at best without their captain.
Ohio forward Adis Kuduzovic faces possible disciplinary action after being ejected with just 21 seconds remaining in the game. Kuduzovic then reentered the field after the game, headbutting the opposing goalkeeper.
The Vortex hope to salvage their season with their final home match on February 11th at the Canton Memorial Civic Center in a rematch with the Lightning.
