Ranked match at the horn between #7 Van Horn and #12 Guadalupe seemed to be going south after Guadalupe Charters went up 3-0. The falcons kept playing, attacking from left and right. Shooting shot after shot, until it paid off just 2 minutes left of the match. Angel DeAvila scored after a cross from Diego Coronado got knocked out of the box. DeAvila saw the ball sit just outside of the box and shot it one time to make it 3-1. It was huge for the Falcons to cut the lead before half.

The second half was all Van Horn. The falcons dominated through out the second half. After several shots go off the post, finally a cross from Diego Coronado found the foot of a defender who scored an own goal for Guadalupe to make it 3-2. Minutes later, Guadalupe’s goalkeeper made a huge mistake after he dropped the ball and picked it right back up inside his box. A goalkeeper can’t do that and as a result, an indirect kick was given to the falcons only 5 yards from the goal. The falcons took advantage and DeAvila once more scored and tied it for the falcons 3-3. With only 9 minutes left, DeAvila found a wide open Edison Rios right outside the box. Rios turned and shot a hard low shot near post to make it 4-3. Great effort from the falcons.
