Great night for soccer. St. Michael came to play the game of the season. It has been like this for a while now. Teams come and play great games vs the Falcons. After finishing the first half 2-1 with goals by Angel DeAvila and Edison Rios, the falcons found themselves in trouble with two counter attacks in the second half. The falcons were dictating the tempo of the game while St. Michael played back and waited for the Falcons to loose the ball. The Guardians would then quickly play the ball over the top and would be extremely dangerous.Their tactics worked perfect for the Guardians, as they scored 2 unanswered goals to lead the game 3-2. After countless attempts by the Falcons, finally with 3 minutes left, Edison Rios scored to level the game at 3-3. We knew we had the advantage, We adjusted after the final whistle to prevent any more balls over the top in OT. Just a few minutes into the first OT, Edison Rios got away with incredible display of speed and scored the winning goal for the Falcons. Falcons now move to 14-2, 3-0 in conference. Next on Monday, on an Independence derby, the Falcons will face William Chrisman.
