The Broncs struck with a long ball 2 minutes into the contest, but it was all Tigers after that.
I suppose running up and down the field all game long as a ball boy, can work up an appetite...and I can only imagine how hungry the players are afterwards.
Cody at #3 Lander...first half...Cody wearing the navy blue...Jordan Steckler...a free kick from roughly 55 yards...and he got it! The senior with one for the personal highlight reel...and that would put the Broncs up 1-nothing, just 2 minutes into the game.
About 6 minutes later...Lander would answer back...Daniel Bolding is going to rush in and send a low line-drive into the back of the net for the equalizer...this game is off to a good start and we now have a 1-1 contest.
Moving on...the Tigers were looking for more...Kyle Leemon is the leading scorer in the state...he did not score in this game, but he contributed in other ways...in this case, he will assist Daniel Lobera and the team-work would pay off...the score is now 2-to-1.
They kept coming...however they got ripped off on this play...Keaton Scott with a well placed ball for Leemon...the senior will use his head...he had the aim to get it past the goalie, but it was the goal-post that provided the rejection...having a potentially great play end like that, can get under the skin of even the best of players...it was still 2-to-1, going into halftime.
Second half...both teams now going in the other direction...the home team was trying to pour it on...denied again by the goal-post...but this play is not yet over...Zach McIsaac is the goalie for the visitors and at times...he had his work cut out for him, and at other times...he caught a few breaks...here's another shot that he will deflect and this time the cross-bar will keep the ball in play...the goal frame can be a goalie's best friend.
Less than 10 minutes to go...Lander would try again...this time Bolding made sure not to put too much on this ball, and he'll squeeze it in under the cross-bar. That would relieve some frustration as the Tigers would get the W...by a score of 3-to-1.
