Smith @ Grimsley Metro 4-A Soccer Match…
Final score 4-2 Smith victory in overtime
Juan Espitia heads a goal off a corner kick from Carlos Casas to put Smith up 1-0.
Juan Espitia hits an amazing shot off a beautiful assist from Amadou Toure early in the half. Then Grimsley gets one back. Raul Elizondo makes an amazing shot off a fast-break-pass from Juan Espitia, but the flag was up for off-sides, so no goal. With 30 seconds left in the half, Grimsley sends a long ball to the corner, passes in front of the net, and puts one in to tie it up, sending them into overtime.
1 minute into overtime, Tony Kdam passes to Carlos Casas, who shoots and scores, bringing it to 3-2. Only a minute after that Tony Kdam takes a shot off an assist from Juan Hernandez to solidify the victory for Smith with a final score of 4 to 2.
Y’Petrol Nie made 7 saves in the 100-minute-long contest.
