As Inter CT prepares for the third year of USL Academy Soccer we saw a new look side [as described in our recent story] travel to Albany for the first of our league games against Blackwatch.
Having romped the league last year, expectations were high, but cautious with a new very young & fresh squad.
Nerves were settled after an early lead was established, but 1-0 is how is stood for the remainder of the half.
Halfway through the second half, the lead was doubled and with 8 minutes left, Inter CT’s Kristian Larsen from our 2006 team was left unmarked on the far post and whipped in a great curled shot to the corner of the net.
Blackwatch did respond five minutes later, but Larsen was again on hand to dispel any fears of a comeback with an easy tap in at the far post after a great flowing passing movement from the Academy side.
The 4-1 victory is our third opening game victory in three years and for Larsen, who’s four minute brace becomes the first Inter CT player to score two goals on opening day.
