The Fighting Bucks had a light schedule this week as they only played one game on the pitch. The Bucks opened conference play with a game at Scotland County against the Fighting Scots. The Bucks dominated time of possession and were technically superior to their opponents for the entire game but were unable to find the back of the net during the first half. The Scots recorded the only goal in the first half and took a 1-0 lead into halftime. The second half was a repeat of the first with the Bucks controlling the ball in the offensive end of the pitch. The Bucks offensive pressure would finally lead to a goal and the Bucks would soon take control of the game. The applied pressure in the goalie box would result in three penalty kicks for the Bucks. Jonathan Pena, Jose Vasquez de la Cruz, and Alfredo Hernandez Perez would convert the penalty kick into goals for the Bucks. Dinari Bascombe and Pedro Ramos would also net goals leading to a 5-1 victory for the Fighting Bucks. The pressure came from all areas of the field as nine different players would contribute to the 40 shots the Bucks would take in the game. This was a strong start to conference play for the Fighting Bucks and had special meaning as well as this victory for Coach McDavid was his 100th victory as the head coach for the Fighting Bucks. Congratulations Coach McDavid for reaching this milestone.
