Blitzers salvage weekend point in Pocono

After carrying most of the play in Lehigh Valley only to see two razor-thin calls put them in a hole they could not escape, FC Buffalo nearly fell victim to a similar fate Sunday evening.

The Blitzers drew Pocono, 0-0, at Stroudsberg High School in Stroudsberg, Penn. behind six saves from goalkeeper Jordan Dilapo. Matt Stedman and Cory Phillips picked up yellow cards in the draw.

Buffalo fell behind Sonic during Saturday’s 3-0 loss after controversial non-offsides and penalty kick calls. Going aggressive in the second half, they allowed a third tally in the closing moments.

Buffalo next takes the pitch Wednesday as they battle for Lord Bedington’s Cup at All-High. The event takes flight at 6:30 p.m.
