Holy Cross defeat the Laurentians 5 -2 in Challenge Cup Exhibition Soccer

 Holy Cross -5 vs St.Lawrence -2

 Game Sheet - New Faces
 Tyler Forcey - 2 Goals
Sean Drew - 2 goals

Holy Cross - 5 vs St. Lawrence -2

It was the red vs blue rivalry, that demonstrated in a exhibition match played in CBS on Saturday evening, that 2013 is going to be a great season. St. Lawrence took a 2 -1 first half lead on two goals scored by newcomer, Sean Drew. Drew played last season with Mount Pearl. 
 Then in the second half, play got a little chippy as Holy Cross, wore the Laurenrians down by focusing on a running game. In the end it was former Laurentians player, Tyler Forcey denting the net twice for Holy Cross and leading the Crusaders to a very impressive 5-2 victory.
Game - well played !
Overall, I felt the game was well played. I enjoyed the physical element to the game. It added a little flare to the match. I thought the officials did a great job in calling and controlling the game.  I was impressed with both teams newcomers, they all performed well.  Sean Drew looked good and  I feel Forcey  has the potential to be a stand-out this season with Holy Cross. 
 Should be interesting !!!
