CKS Warta Soccer Club
Illinois State Cup
Castellanos and Adame inspire five-star Warta;
Warta eased pasted Macedonia FC to State Cup quarterfinals with an impressive 7:0 win.
An aggressive first half performance from Warta set the tone for thumping win over an unfathomably miserable FC Macedonia, whose propensity for giving the ball away unnecessarily and total lack of intensity, defensive discipline and attacking edge ultimately proved to their undoing.
In the early stages, Warta pressure allowed the visitors to dominate possession, and on 11 minutes they took the lead after three great chances earlier in opening ten minutes.
Macedonia failed to clear a corner, Tadeo Gonzalez cross, and Juan De La Cruz guided a header into the upper near corner.
Macedonia has not created any chances for the first half hour as Warta continued to dominate their half of the field and ten minutes after the opening goal Jose Castellanos netted second while William Butler finished off a long distance shot by Davis Aranda off the cross bar to an empty net in the 27th minute to make it 3:0.
Macedonia had their first shot towards Warta goal in the 32nd minute from a free kick but their redirect was high over the bar. Luis Adame made it 4:0 and Warta easily could've had two to three more goals in the half as Tadeo Gonzalez missed few in front of the goal.
Macedonia had their second chance on goal in the 43rd minute from a free kick but that was all their offense on the night as Warta goalkeeper Rodolfo Gonzalez had nothing to do all evening.
Second half, Warta used all their substitutes and continued the possession of the ball creating many more chances and finished the half with three goals, with Castellanos and his second in the 66th minute, Davis in the 71st minute and Luis Adame in the 78th his second on the night as well to complete the thrashing of miserable Macedonia side.
Win advances Warta thru to quarterfinals as they will host Czarni Jaslo on Thursday June 28th at Hawthorn Park in Cicero.
