KEGLOR STYMIED, ST. PETE OFFENSE CAN’T FIND FORM
Battling a poor conditions, illness and a scrappy Orlando defense, St. Petersburg Swans leading goal scorer Jake Keglor was kept off the goal sheet for the first time in 2017 Saturday in St. Pete.
With his 27-goal tally over the first three matches of the 2017 season making a run to the century mark possible, Keglor now sees that hill just a bit higher to climb.
More importantly, Keglor’s rough night showcases his importance to the Swans offense, which never got on track in the driving Florida rain.
Plagued by inaccuracy both under pressure and from set plays, St. Pete saw 21 scoring kicks result in only 7 majors, despite controlling their share of the play forward 50s.
The St. Petersburg Swans return to practice Thursday evening at 6 pm and Saturday morning at 10 am.
Both sessions are at the club’s regular training ground – on the Common at Crescent Lake in St. Petersburg. Trainings and practices are always free, and are open to co-ed players of all ages and skill level.
The club will travel to Tennessee June 3 for a matches vs. the Nashville Kangaroos and Atlanta Kookaburras.
