Screaming Pelicans FC start the season with a W!
Screaming Pelicans FC began the 2009/2010 season with some new faces and the goal to be tops in the table by year end. The first match of the season saw SPFC square off against a newly demoted D1 Ouzo squad. The rivalry between SPFC and Ouzo has a long history that even includes a semi-final match in Charleston between the 2 clubs that Ouzo lost. This time would be no different as the SPFC side came out pushing the attack and dominating for the most part of the first 60 minutes. As the match lingered neither team could find the net until the 74th minute when Lawrence Monroe bent a shot to the back upper 90 from left side of the 18 yard box. SPFC took the lead and would hold on fending off a flurry of attacks against a strong Ouzo side that was determined to get the equalizer. In the end SPFC notched its first win on the season in its first match and looks to build on this as the team faces off against Sting Select next week.
