In the midst of qualifying for the greatest 500 mile race, the Old Bhoys kicked off across the street at Cardinal Ritter against Toledo Villa F.C. The visitors applied the pressure from the start as they recorded five corners out of the gate. Toledo went on to break the gridlock 15 minutes in as Ryan McDonald received the ball inside the box off a long throw in from the right flank. McDonald was able to turn and fired a shot past keeper Josh Routte. Then, Toledo made it 2-0 at the 36 minute mark. A low cross by Tyler Biggs from the right wing found forward Adam Mitchell for the goal.

The Old Bhoys finished the first half on a strong note as their best chances came in the 42nd minute that saw veteran Tamba Samba on the receiving end of those good fortunes. Tim Shakleton’s cross on the left side found Samba whose strike was deflected and trickled across the goal line for a corner. On that ensuing corner, Rocky Byrd’s dead ball cross eventually found Samba on the far side but his shot found the side netting. Three minutes later the boys in red were rewarded for their efforts as the center official pointed to the penalty spot for a hand ball. Samba delivered from the spot as the Old Bhoys cut the deficit to one heading into the half.

Old Bhoys head coach Steve Bushre made three changes to start the second half and those substitutes had an immediate impact in the attacking half. However, the Old Bhoys could not convert on their hard earn efforts and Toledo sealed the match in the 79th minute. Substitute Sean Young was able to chip the ball over Routte inside the eighteen to take the game 3-1.


Old Bhoys host Oakland County Football Club next Saturday at Cardinal Ritter Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.
