Game Recap

We traveled to Brighton for a KLAA showdown last Tuesday. We needed a win to overtake the Bulldogs for 1st place in the West Division but came away with a 1-1 draw. We had some great chances in the 1st half only to be denied by the Brighton keeper or the post. Sammy Saeed hit the crossbar on a shot in the 2nd half as well. After 77 minutes of scoreless play, Brighton sent a free kick into the box and scored on a scramble in front of the net with 2:30 left to go. Just a minute later Max Whitmore found his brother Kay making a run behind the Brighton defense and slotted him a perfect pass that he hit from about 25 yards out into the upper left corner to tie the match. We almost got the winner with :20 left when Brandon Dellaposta sent a cross in front of the Brighton goal that Sammy just fired over the bar. The boy’s were disappointed, but I told them that goal with 1:15 left was real important. The tie left us still 1-point behind Brighton. We’re not mathematically out yet, but need to win our last game and hope Milford can tie or win against Brighton in their final match. Bennett Stokes was great in goal making 2 critical saves to keep us in the game.
