It was a huge game for both teams on a hot afternoon. Game was scheduled to be played at 4:30 but got delayed due to the heat. The lack of intensity from both teams was visible. More than likely winner would get an edge in seeding for the 2018-19 High School Soccer playoffs. Fortunately, the Falcons came on top to win it 2-1.
First goal came from a cross into the box by Angel DeAvila. Raynalso Jean Pierre was there to collect it and put in the back of the net. East tied it within 5 minutes after a 45 yard cross went over the head of Antonio Carrillo. As frustration hit, so did the urgency to win the game. With just 9:33 left, Angel DeAvila went through after Edison Rios played a beautiful through pass. DeAvila’s strong shot was enough to beat the East Goalkeeper and win it for the Falcons.
Falcons improve to 8-2. Next 9/20/18 first conference game vs Heritage. Kick off is at 5:30
