Saints strong arm St. Louis foes in preseason match

PRESEASON FRIENDLY- SAINTS 2 CURE 1

The first ever meeting between Gateway United and the St. Louis Cure is in the books. It was supposed to be a simple preseason exercise. What it became was a physical match. That is what happens when two teams that don't like each other get together. The Saints opened the scoring with a goal from Marco Pappa. This goal was later taken away after Pappa received not one, but two yellow cards. His ejection did not sit well with the Saints coach. The entire supporters group could hear the four letter words flying out of his mouth. The Saints would reclaim a 1-0 lead with Luis Landin's assist. Way to go Luis! The boys from the wrong side of St. Louis equalized with a penalty kick from Robbie Findley. As was mentioned before this was a physical match. The Saints reclaimed the lead for good with Kenny Mansally's goal . Frei had a clean sheet on the reserve side of the roster and Mwanga had a yellow card as well for the Saints.

    You were quite lucky. Findley scored again last night; Espindola added two also.

  4. Correction. Morales and Espindola scored one apiece. My earlier source was wrong. Either way both my guys--a good sign (Javi also added an assist).
