Flames Go 2-0 With Victory Over Dublin United Schalke

The Flames picked up a second consecutive win with a decisive 5-3 victory over Dublin United Schalke on Sunday at Anderson Field.

Schalke scored first in the 3rd minute with a hard strike that caught the Flames' defense by surprise. But Johnny Volker made his presence known immediately thereafter by stealing the ball at the top of the key, dribbling a few paces and drilling the shot past the diving keeper for the equalizer.

What followed was an onslaught by the Flames, as they pushed hard and had several chances including two corners before Ben K scored on a sliding touch just past the opposing keeper with about 5 minutes left in the half.

The Flames had several more shots on goal to start the second half and finally converted in the 5th minute in with a fine finish by Wes on a left cross from Johnny to make it 3-1.

Schalke tried to make a match of it, scoring a nifty goal off the right post in the 9th minute of the half to make it 3-2, but the Grandview home side came storming right back with a nice finish from Dylan on the right cross by Sam. This was followed by a hammer strike from Indigo at the top of the key at '21 to put the Flames seemingly out of reach at 5-2.

The talented little Osh for Schalke tried to bring his side back with an answer one minute later, but it was not to be for the Dubliners, as time ran out, and the Flames recorded 6 points in 2 games to start the 2010 campaign.
