While the King's Warriors have been competitive this season as an expansion team in the PDL, they are looking to turn their last five regular-season games from close losses to wins. "We'll be utilizing a full, compliment of players this weekend, and digging a bit deeper into our roster,"said Southern West lrginia coach Scott Reitnour."Our focus in training has been on transition this week, as we've given up a couple goals that we probably shouldn't have surrendered in the past few games. So we're been working on negative transition from a tactical sense." . The King's Warriors are coming oia couple of tough losses this past weekend in Virginia and Maryland.

High School Studev00ts Help With Beyond Wishes TRP Wild Weekend Sees It seems like there is more to do than ever for BEyond Wishes Therapeutic Riding Program (BWTRP). High school students from New Jersey and Illinois, who were volunteering with Bethlehem Farm for a week, as well as Bethlehem Farm caretakers, gave several hours of labor to the McQuaigs to help out with their equine therapy program. Bethlehem Farm is a non-profit Catholic community in Appalachia that transforms lives through services with local community and the teaching of sustainable promote and support the industry and educate the public on the benefits of riding and ground therapies relating to the horse LEssons are going very well this season special needs students, three Summers Count veterans and four able bodied participants. The Beckley Veterans Association will join the program in July with five to six more vets taking part in different equine ground and riding therapies. The success of the program is gratifying, However, BWTRP is a non-profit organization and there is a great need for donations for the' Warriors Get practices.

Saturday's Southern West Vi Development League's South - Palmetto FC Bantams game could Atlantic Division standings. But aRer Saturday's home game there was no doubt that mother nature was the real weekend winner. Despite a monster storm that caused major power outages in West Virginia, several mid-Atlantic states and several midwest states, the King's Warriors were able to play both home games and come away with a win and a tie. First and foremost the King's Warriors organization, led by the President and Founder of the Nehemiah Group (the team's ownership group), Dr. James Blume Jr., is asking its fans, players, staff, volunteers and corporate partners to pray for all of those in the southern West Virginia region who are without power and fuel. The King's Warriors began play Friday night at home against the Fredericksburg (Virginia) Hotspur. Southern West Virginia took a 1- 0 lead on Jason Keever'sfirst goal of the season in the 21st minute. While Keever's finish was nice, it was what he did before the goal that turned heads. Keever, a King's Warriors player- assistant coach, moved into the , attack zone and chipped the ball over two Hotspur defenders before passing over to Jack Thompson. Keever took a return pass from Thompson and buried a shot through the legs of Fredericksburg goalie Colin Newcity for a 1-0 lead. Keever has been seeing more and more action as his fitness has improved, and his offensive spark has been clearly evident in the team's past several games. "I definitely feel my fitness coming back.'said Keever.'Unfortunately we only have what, three games left? But I do want to finish the season strong at the very least." ! Southelm West Virginia led 1-0 over Fredericksburg (5-5-2) through the first 45 minutes, and shortly  after the players went to the locker room at halftime the storm hit. Lightning and heavy rain followed, : and the stadium lost all power. a 90-minute delay, the referees and ' coaches decided it would be " impossible to play the second half, and the game was officially called. Under United Soccer League rules, if at least one half of a game .-i  is completed and cannot continue, the game result at the half stands as the final score. The win was Southern West Virginia's third of the season, and improved its record to 3-8-1.

It was decided to move the game up to a 5:00 p.m. start from 7:00 p.m., and attqmpt to play the game as scheduled. After trailing 1-0 late in the match, the King's Warriors tied the game in the 90th minute on a penalty kick by Harry Sherwood and the two teams finished the game at 1-1 Southern West Y"L,inia held the ball for much of the match and enjoyed a big territorial edge. =I thought we did a good job passing and controlling the ball,'said King's Warriors coach Scot Reitnour."We had the best shape to our team that we've had the whQle season. We were a bit stale in the final third until late in the game. Pushing Harry (Sherwood) up top forced us to play a bit more directly and put pressure on the opposition with the ball. When we did that I felt the game finally rewarded us.  With a few operational adjustments and another sweltering day, Saturday's game came off without a hitch. Players from beth teams played hard and battled to the 1-1 tie. The Bantams scored first in the 4th minute as the referee called a handball on King's Warriors midfielder Mark Mitchell. Braeden Troyer stepped up and scored on the penalty kick and Palmetto FC took an early 1-0 lead. Southern West Virginia (3-8-2) kept pressuring and didn't give up. In the 90th minute Sherwood was tackled in the box by the Bantams (2-4-6), and the referee awarded the King's Warriors a penalty kick. Sherwood, who had two previous penalty-kick goals for Southern West Virginia this season, calmly walked up and scored his third to tie the match at 1-L With very little stoppage time left, the two teams finally settled for the 1-1 tie.
