Warriors bounced back from a narrow 1-0 defeat to FC Swag at the weekend, overcoming 이든FC with hard work and excellent finishing on a cold night in Seoul.
Final score: Seoul City Warriors 3 - 1 이든FC
After a tight first 25 minutes, Warriors fell behind after 이든FC pounced on an unfortunate defensive mix-up to take the lead. However, they were soon back level after Kevin Conlan, grabbing his third goal in 3 games, was first to a rebound after a good save from the opposing keeper.
As the second half began, Warriors went ahead after Conlan turned provider and slipped in returning striker Guillaume Pommet to finish beyond the advancing goalkeeper. Pommet was then on hand to add another, and the Warriors found themselves with a 2 goal cushion going into the final 20 minutes of the game.
The match had been played at a high tempo, and 이든FC had a number of technical and explosive players on show. One of them won himself a penalty after getting loose in the area and forcing a foul. Luck was with Warriors this evening though, as the resulting kick was blasted against the crossbar, and the Warriors held strong for the remaining minutes.
Warriors go in search of their first consecutive victories of the year this weekend, with another game against Hurricane. Stay tuned for more updates!
