This match preview will be aimed at the game taking place during the UPSL 2021 Fall Season between Deportivo Lake Mary FC and Nona Soccer Academy on the 13th of November.
This very match will be taking place at Lake Mary High School, which stands as the home ground for Deportivo Lake Mary FC.
Deportivo Lake Mary FC – Overview
The 2021 fall season has brought with it a mixed bag of emotions. On one hand, the team is performing well on the pitch and the plays seem a lot more intense and motivated. But the results will tell you a different story. Players are well aware of it which is why it’s super important for them to not just show a promising display but seal all 3 points this Saturday.
Lake mary come into this game off the back of a not so impressive run. Over the last 3 games, they’ve lost twice and drawn once, on a similar scoreline of 3-2 and 3-3. Especially the last game which seemed like a really good opportunity to grab a win against a top side like Brevard fire FC. But the lack of defensive solidity made us vulnerable at the back yet again.
Resulting in lost points and dropped position. The tactical changes made by coach Alfredo are clearly working as players are finding more spaces in behind and scoring goals too. But perhaps the players should demand more from themselves at this make or break point of the season.
A few solid performances in the last 2 games could see Lake Marry potentially rise to a 5th spot. This can be a big step up from last seasons finish in 9th position. Failing to do so would have a negative impact for sure.
Nona Soccer Academy Overview
Our opposition coming into the second last game of the season are a well versed and hardworking side in Nona Soccer Academy. They currently find themselves amongst the top 4 teams with 13 points on the table. They are of course closely followed by CFL Gosa Spurs who are yet to play 2 more games and are expected to catch up soon.
The playstyle as I just mentioned is really simple work-work and work some more, which makes them a difficult side break down at times. The Nona Soccer academy players don’t care about playing the fancy style of football or sleek trickery, they just know how to get over the line by scoring goals. Which has so far worked in their favour. Winning 2 out of their last 3 matches while scoring 8+ goals combined, only to be stopped by the brilliant OC Academy in their last match.
Deportivo Lake Mary vs Nona Soccer Academy FC
It’s a very crucial fixture for both teams – An equal opportunity to either advance or solidify their respective positions on the table with a win. And in order to do so, our very own lake mary boys will have to match the work ethic of Nona Soccer Academy by giving them an equally tough challenge as their last match against Ocean way FC.
Playing at your home ground is always a plus, but we mustn’t get too comfortable with our play style and home advantage. Definitely scoring first would give each side a big boost in confidence and sometimes thats all you need for such a tight fixture.
Our wishes are with Lake mary boys as always and we are sure of their work ethic and winning mentality. Make sure to tune in via Facebook live at 7:00 PM ET.
