RWB Adria continued their strong form on Sunday, downing Stare Byki FC 4:2 at Oak Brook Sports Core. Adria's superior speed and pinpoint finishing were the distinguishing factors in a hard-fought match. Adria now have 13 points from six games.
Adria controlled much of the possession in the early going and broke out on top in the 23rd minute, when a long ball over the top left their striker to slot past Byki keeper Ray Najera.
The Byki bounced back eight minutes later. Alan Stevens launched a long throw-in into the Adria penalty area and Phil Parker's header floated just inside the near post to level the affair at 1:1.
Adria scored two goals just before halftime to assert their dominance. On both occasions, they beat the Byki for speed with ruthless counterattacking.
The Byki increased their effort to start the second half and got their reward in the 47th minute. High pressure on an Adria defender trying to play out of the back led to a turnover and Arinze Okafor sprinted alone to the Adria goal. Okafor collided with the goalie, but somehow poked the ball into the open net to cut Adria's lead to 3:2.
Adria made it 4:2 in the 75th minute, beating the Byki on the counter yet again.
