Another Heartbreaker for US Men

Feb. 24, 2011, 11:33 a.m. (ET)

CHULA VISTA, CA – The US men found themselves on the losing end of the scoreboard as they fell for a second day in a row to France by a 4-0 margin.  Though the US could not find a consistent offensive threat their defense was able to hold France to a single goal in the first half, leaving them only a one-goal deficit at the half. 

 “It’s nice to have another competitive series under our belts but it goes to show where we’re at right now and what we need to work on.”  Coach Nick Conway commented.  “We’re obviously disappointed with the results but it shows us the kind of level that we need to play at to stay competitive in a longer time period or a tournament setting.  It’s about keeping our play consistent.”

As the second half played out France was able to make a push offensively and converted three goals from the field to take a commanding 4-0 lead and secure the victory.

 With two days of rest ahead the US men look to rebound as they take on Canada to wrap up their 6-game series.
