Hard to blame Gelnovatch, when Fordham scores on only real chance they get

in the entire game on a short cross that luckily hits their only guy on his foot or maybe it was his head and it was his only goal of the year. Our stud GK was not in position to make the save. It happens to the best of them. They could cross that ball a 100 times from that position and would not score, but they did the one time when we could not afford to allow it. We had a dozen or maybe two dozen decent chances with the ball bouncing around inside their 18. , but the ball never bounced our way where we could get a foot or head on the ball. In other sports we would have won by a huge margin, but in soccer luck determines the winner far too often and it happens at all levels including the WC. The lucky bounce makes the difference far too often, but no one will change the rules to mostly eliminate the lucky bounce thing.

We were clearly the better team by a lot and yet we lost. That is soccer for you and it is the one reason I do not like to watch it compared to most other sports.
