Biggest Crowd & Another Win Equals a Historic Friday for City
This was the Rivalry game. After City beat ABK at their home opener by a score of 10-3, everyone knew that this game was going to be intense. The stands were packed and the atmosphere thick with anticipation. Every player knew what was at stake. City came out of the gate with complete control of the ball. They looked organized defensively and dominated the possession. They took shot after shot but couldn't find the back of the net. The score was 0-0 with five minutes left in the first half.
Captain to the Rescue
In the waning minutes of the first half, City's Captain, Jared Wilson-Santos, was able to capitalize on an ABK mistake and put a goal in to make it 1-0. Shortly after that, City's Dylan Lack scored again to send City into half up 2-0. After the halftime break, City came out storming. Ryan Derby would score off of a brilliant combination play from Jeremy Klepal and Aldony Mendez. Then Emmanuel Belliard sliced his way through the defense and chipped it over the keeper. After that, Jared Wilson-Santos would bang one in from outside off of a well created assist by Klepal. Two more goals would follow as City held a comfortable lead of 7-1 with 10 minutes to go.
Holding off a comeback
ABK switched to 5 attacking players and pulled their keeper in a move to try to make a comeback. City faltered and allowed three quick goals in. Coach, Jacob Derby, called a time out to switch defensive formations and the game would never be in doubt again. City won running away for their third victory in the winter season.
