STLFC Rallies to Beat Defending USL Champs


Lyons, Joe, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


St. Louis FC certainly has shown a flair for the dramatic to open the United Soccer League season.

For the second time in as many games at Soccer Park in Fenton, STLFC took an early lead and then rallied late for a 3-2 win Saturday night, beating the defending USL champion New York Red Bulls II before a crowd of 4,807.

"It was a really good game of football in my world, it's football two teams were aggressive, two teams, they try to play," said first-year coach Preki Radosavljevic after his club improved to 2-0-1.

Down 2-1 in the 74th minute, STLFC tied it on a penalty kick from Angulo. The penalty came after Christian Volesky was dragged down in the box while running down a lofted ball from Octavio Guzman.

"All these guys train hard every day," Preki said of his bench. "It's not starters and substitutes; I don't look at it that way. Everybody in this team is capable of playing and we had quite a few new guys in the lineup. They were ready and they came through for us."

STLFC again jumped on top early as Volesky stripped the ball from former Southern Illinois University Edwardsville teammate Justin Bilyeu and scored on a sliding shot to the far corner just three minutes into the game. …
