|DIVISION HONOR: RCA vs DAKOTA preview|
RCA VS DAKOTA 8:00 PM THURSDAY MARCH 22 AT CDGT
ORANJESTAD- Carlos Steven Rua believes he is a Bee Exterminator. In his last two outings with RCA he has found to back of the net 4 times so far. In the first half of the season he has scored a total of seven goals. In RCA's last game against JTL, he scored a hat-trick.
With RCA determined to win the title for a second straight season, Dakota must step on the field on-top of their game if they would like to get 3 precious points to move to the fourth spot in the standings which is the last playoff spot. RCA in their last 8 games have won a total of 7 games and one draw game against Bubali.
RCA is currently on a four game winning streak and have only lost one game so far this season which was at the hand of Dakota back on October 26, 2011 the last time these two met in a regular season game. RCA is the only team so far with double digit wins.
Dakota on the other hand knows that RCA is coming to their backyard tomorrow and would like to show RCA that they can repeat their performance of last October and be victorious again. Dakota has only been victories once in their last four games, with two draws and one defeat.
After having their last match cancelled due to an act of vandalism at Compleho Deportivo Frans Figaroa which affected the illumination on the soccer pitch, they had extra time to practice and regroup as a team. Dakota is coming out highly motivated and ready to show that the last win was not a "one win wonder."
With the win Dakota would total 21 points which is good for the fourth place on the standings and the last playoff spot. Dakota has a total of 18 points out of 10 match played and RCA has a total of 31 points out of 12 matches.
During the Copa Betico Croes 2012 Final, these same two clubs met and RCA apparently set the record straight with a 5-1 victory on national TV which was broadcasted by ATV15.
RCA will be without two of its top attackers Eric Santos and Maurice Escalona. The news out of RCA's corner is that Eric would be returning in time for the playoffs and Maurice is going to be out for at least a couple of weeks.
AVB would like to extend an invitation to all soccer fans on the island to come support both local clubs tomorrow at Compleho Deportivo Guillermo Trinidad. The game is scheduled to start 8:00 PM sharply. The playoff fever is already starting to make his presence felt. We expect both team to have at least a couple of hundred supporters cheering their favorite club. We expect to see a Yellow and Black left wing tribune side and a rood-wit-blauw (red-white-blue) right tribune wing.
*This report just in from the Police Commissioner Trudy Hassel: RCA has joined the "faya bo haya" campaign and it is important for other Division Honor clubs to know that this will continue during the course of 2012.
NOTE: RCA has a 70.40% chance of winning this match.
