Two teams that wanted to win.that's a high scoring afair. game must have been wide open.
We came out strong and scored at the 15 minute mark to take the lead. Held the lead till around the 60th minute when Abbotsford tied. We responded well and took back the lead around 65 minutes. From then on Abbotsford came on strong and had some premium chances that they missed. At the 85 minute mark we missed a chance when their keeper came out of the 18 to attack a ball. Our player got there first and shot only to hit the post. In extra time Abbotsford got a late corner. Sent everyone forward including their goalie. The ball was cleared but in the second phase a cross came in that bounced around. Their keeper got a foot on it and our keeper dove for the save. From our perspective there goalie then kicked the ball out of our keepers hands and into the net to tie it. Referee at the 30 yard line and had no view of the play. Whistle blown very shortly after the goal for full time.Any word on what happened in the Red Devils game? They have been looking strong to start the year, was surprised to see them drop points vs the Dragons.
TSS was a decent team think they had a few call ups playing. we only had 11 strikers playin cmids, cmids playing defence. They came out quick and caught us in the first 10 mins as we were trying to figure out how to deal with the lack of players in there natural positions. They had a few more chances throughout the game. We could have scored a couple, but couldn't finish. I would say game was about 50-50 could have gone either way. If we have a full squad think we could have taken it. onto dynamo next week hopefully rebound with a full squad. Tough dropping 3 points...
