Camargo Scores Lone Goal in 1-0 Win
Posted 29 June 2015 6:47 pm
K-W United FC extended its season high winning streak to six games Sunday afternoon in Waterloo at University Stadium by defeating the Dayton Dutch Lions by a score of 1-0.
United came into the game off the heels of a 4-0 win Friday over the Derby City Rovers and continued their momentum into this one. Dayton was attempting to rebound from a disappointing narrow 1-0 away defeat to Forest City London.
As has been the theme of United's home games this season, the elements weren't friendly. Both sides had to deal with a wet turf surface after periods of rain throughout the day.
Captain Sergio Camargo's second half goal was the difference as United moved into second place in the Great Lakes Division.
Dayton came closest to opening the score in the 28th minute when Zach Zwiesler rattled a shot from just inside the United penalty box off the crossbar. That'd be all either team could produce as both sides struggled to muster any chances.
The home side would start the brighter of the two teams in the second half with several chances in United's favour. Camargo, a halftime sub, made his impact felt right from the get go, upping the tempo of the game.
United would break the deadlock in the 70th minute after Camargo found the net from his back. After a nice sequence of passing plays, the ball fell to United's number ten on the penalty spot. After initially fluffing on a shot attempt and falling down, the forward followed it up with a swing of the ball that found the back of the net.
The Black and Blue continued to press for the rest of the game, but the visitors held out and United escaped with the narrow victory.
Sergio Camargo was named Man of the Match for his performance.
The win puts United just one point behind division leaders Michigan Bucks with one extra game played.
After a three-day break, Chris Pozniak's men will get right back at it with a matchup against the Bucks at University Stadium on Canada Day in a battle for top spot in the division.
