First rule of soccer...you got to know how to devour the orange slices! He knows the drill...he's just savoring the flavor.
Number 3 Lander at Number 4 Green River in a 3A vs. 4A matchup...first half...Lander wearing the white...Daniel Bolding from 37 yards...and he nails it. That is how you start a game! He only needed a few minutes, and that would put his team up 1-to-nothing.
On the other end....Green River was trying to counter...Victor Alatorre has a shot and he did not miss by much. He and his team-mates were playing in their 5th game, in less than 48 hours. There was some concern that fatigue might be setting in. The score would remain 1-zip going into halftime.
Second half...the Wolves put forth a better effort once they got the wind at their back...Chase Erickson is going to have his first shot denied...but he had the angle on the rebound...we got a little confused, but that ball would go in...the second effort would pay off, and we have a tie game at 1, and there's plenty of time on the clock for more.
The Tigers would give a try from the corner...Eli Lowham has the distance and the aim, but Alex Marchal was in the right place at the right time to deny access. 007 let one get over him earlier...no way was he allowed a second.
...but the visitors kept coming...Kyle Leemon will fire a bullet at point blank range and Marchal took one for the team...you can't dodge them all in this game, and a good goalie knows that.
About 5 minutes to go...G-R was knocking on the door again...things were crowded in front of the net...so they would go outside and try a new approach...Erickson with a great centering pass to Alatorre who will use his head and the 1-2 combo would pay off. It was a very busy weekend for Green River, who would finish 3rd in their own tournament...winning this game, 2-to-1.
