Richmond Kicks Crystal Palace Back To Baltimore

August 10, 2008 |

It had to be a long, long drive home for the Crystal Palace team last night after being embarrassed in Richmond by the Kickers.

The Richmond Kickers beat Crystal Palace 5-0 to finish the regular season. Crystal Palace was never in the game as Richmond dominated from the start to the end of the game. The loss gives Crystal Palace a 11-8-1 record for the season.

Crystal Palace will have to find a fix for their problems quickly. Their last 9 games Crystal Palace has gone 4-5 in USL2 league games. This is the wrong time of the year to be playing like this.

The playoffs begin Wednesday as Crystal Palace will play Harrisburg at UMBC Stadium at 7:30 PM. Crystal Palace will have to get back to the play they had from early in the season if they expect to move on to the semi-finals.

But overall, Congratulations to Crystal Palace for making the playoffs in only their 2nd season. I guest watching them play this year and seeing what the team can play like at times you expect more from the team then what their record has shown this year.

I hope the team comes out Wednesday and plays like they are capable of playing.
