Madison Boys Soccer Two-Game Win Streak Comes to a Halt After Losing to Whippany Park 3-1


MADISON, NJ — The Madison Dodgers had their two-game winning streak come to an end after losing to Whippany Park 3-1 on Thursday evening. The Dodgers are now 4-6-1 on the season.

Whippany Park got off to a fast start and after a couple of good chances found the back of the net to go up 1-0.  Minutes later, Madison countered with a goal from #15 on a set piece by Lucas DiGiacamo.  

After a couple great saves by Madison goalie Brendan Armstrong, the Dodgers went into halftime lucky to be tied 1-1.

“We failed to be committed. We failed to fight," Head coach Erik Studnicky said. “Our lack of effort for a team that is trying to get back to .500 was very poor."

Thirty seconds into the second half, Thomas Rigas scored a goal for Whippany Park to go up 2-1. Rigas bulldozed through three Madison defenders and then had a clear shot at goal that was too much to handle. The Dodgers couldn’t find a rhythm all game and were shutout in the second half.

Starting midfielder Matt DiGiacomo was out due to an injury and was missed dearly.

“We missed him bad," Studnicky said. “That being said we need players to step up and be ready to play. Very disappointed in the way we played today."

Madison has some time to regroup, as the next game isn’t until next Friday, October 14th against Mountain Lakes.
