#THE University of The Bahamas men’s soccer team will play its second pre-season scrimmage this weekend at The Roscow R.L. Davies field in the Blue Hills Sporting Complex against Dynamos FC.
#The Mingoes won the first pre-season scrimmage against Renegades FC 3-1 August 20 at the same venue.
#Mingoes newcomer Ronaldo Green scored twice for the team (34th and 53rd minute) and Resean Rolle scored one goal (28th minute).
#Mingoes assistant coach Adam Miller said the team didn’t stick to the plan in the first half of the match but eventually came around.
#“In the second half we readjusted and started keeping the ball a lot better and moving the ball a lot better,” he said. “We were trying to work with a team that is learning some new concepts while we are bringing in new players so for the very first game I think it was pretty good.”
#Miller added that the team was able to take advantage on the field and created many opportunities for the team.
#“The chances that we did create were really good,” he said. “From the offensive I think it was pretty good considering we have not worked on anything in particular. So it was raw nature of the players and that’s a good sign for us.”
#The Mingoes play Dynamos FC 6pm August 27 at The Roscow R.L. Davies field in the Blue Hills Sporting Complex.
#The Dynamos club was the last Bahamas Football Association champion before the COVID-19 pandemic.
