The Staley Mustangs Boys 7th Grade Soccer Team took the field against the Hunt Huskies tonight. The Mustangs scored first, midway through the first half, off a connection from a corner kick. Staley's second score came with nine minutes left in the first half. The Mustangs drove down the field, a pass to the middle had the goalie on the attack. The goalie and offender bumped as the forward made the kick toward the unmanned goal. The Huskies came right back and scored two minutes later. The Mustangs took a 2-1 lead to halftime. The Huskies came out roaring in the second half and scored in the first minute to tie it 2-2. The teams stay well matched, each taking some shots on goal and both goalies have some great saves. At just past the half way mark of the second half, the Huskies scored again and took the lead, 3-2.
The Mustangs stayed strong and fought hard. The Mustangs kept pressing and it paid off with a game tying goal by Austin with ten minutes left. The scored was tied 3-3. The Staley crowd was pumped. The Huskies did not make it easy playing hard right down to the wire. With less than a minute left Travis drove down the side line and passed to the middle. Trent was in the right place at the right time and played it perfectly. The Mustangs took the lead with 21 seconds left. The crowd and the Staley bench went wild. It was an exciting game with a great finish.
Congratulations Mustangs!!! Way to Go!!
