The Staley Mustangs 8th Grade Boys Soccer hosted the Hunt Huskies tonight. Hunt took the early lead with a score off a penalty kick ten minutes into the game, and led 1-0. The teams played a fairly even match moving the ball up and down the field. Finally with nine minutes left, the Mustangs tied the game with a header into the net off a corner kick connection. With two minutes left in the first half, John took a pass and headed to the goal with a defender right on him. John and the defender went for the ball at the same time, right in front of the goalie. The Staley forward got tripped up, tumbled with the goalie. Theo was right there to tap the ball into the goal. The Mustangs had the 2-1 lead at halftime.
The second half the Mustangs came out aggressively and scored in the first two and half minutes to make it a 3-1 match. The Mustangs played strong and stayed tough, they took several shots on goal while the defense held the Huskies scoreless and brought home the win. Great job Mustangs!!!
