News Release from Kingston FC – September 7th, 2014

After being frustrated for nearly 30 minutes while Waterloo played ball control to protect a 4-0 lead, Kingston FC‘s 1st Division squad finally broke through with two late goals but still lost 4-2.

Waterloo took advantage of a couple of defensive lapses and two corner kicks to run up the 4-0 score in the first half.

After the half, Waterloo kept most of its players back passing the ball around and trying – mostly successfully – to keep the ball away from Kingston.

However at the 74th minute mark, Akil DeFreitas finally scored for Kingston.

Bend it like Bajer – Kingston’s Newest Signing Does it Like Beckham!

Written by Admin on . Posted in Uncategorized

“You’ve seen the movie – “Bend it like Beckham’. “Now come and see the real thing.” That’s the promise from Joe Scanlon, president of Kingston FC. Scanlon says his team needed some additional scoring punch if it was to finish second in the Canadian Soccer League and – he says – they’ve believe they’ve found it. In addition to three players from the Cape Coral Hurricanes – signings announced last week– Kingston has signed Lukas Bajer a first division player from the Czech Republic with top flight experience in Holland, Moldova and Kazakhstan. “Lukas promised us two goals in his debut with the reserves last Sunday,” said Scanlon, “and he delivered. “He scored twice and set up a third with a blistering free kick” Scanlon said the most exciting goal was David Beckham style curving shot from the left wing. “It curved from right to left into the top corner of the net just the way you saw it in the movie, ‘Bend it like Beckham’”. Kingston reserves won that game 5-0. Scanlon says it’s unusual for a first division European player to play in the Canadian Soccer League. “Lukas has a sister in Toronto,” he says, “and he wanted to come to Canada. He wanted to experience North American soccer and explore opportunities, and Kingston FC seems to be a great fit for him at this point.” Scanlon says Bajer was not alone in impressing in his debut. Corey Faughnan also scored in his debut with the reserve team and Jordan Collins – another new signing – was good enough in his first appearance to play for both the reserves and the first team in the doubleheader sweep of Burlington SC. Scanlon said while Kingston FC – which finished first last season – had had some good games – the team moved last Burlington with a 4-0 win last weekend – the play has been a bi erratic, especially at home. “We tied one game we should have won and lost another we should have tied.” Kingston is at home this Sunday at one o’clock at Queen’s West Campus in what Scanlon says is a must win. “We are in fourth place five points behind second place Toronto Croatia – a team we play again in Kingston on September 21st. We need to keep winning if we want to make that game one that will decide second place.” For further information contact Joe Scanlon at Joe.Scanlon@talk21.com
