Club Atletico Saint Louis drops close game to Demize

by Peyton Rives

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Club Atletico Saint Louis (1-3-1) was defeated, 1-0, by Demize NPSL (2-1-2) on Tuesday evening in Springfield, Missouri.

For majority of the game, both teams were balanced, each generating chances but unable to score in the first half.

In the second half, however, Demize used their speed to get behind CASTL’s defensive line. With few defenders in sight, Matt Yankowitz buried a goal into the left side of the net, just out of reach of the keeper, giving Demize the 1-0 lead.

Although the Bluebirds had a few near-goals, they were unable to find the equalizing goal, falling just short in a closely fought game.

On Saturday, June 15, the Bluebirds continue their road stretch, as they travel to Little Rock to take on the Rangers to avenge their 4-1 loss earlier in the season.
