After Michael Senese scores to give Metea the 1-0 lead, it’s a Free Kick for the Wildcats as Derek Sisbarro crosses his shot towards the box and Ege Tunar is right there to tap the shot in, but it goes wide.
Another chance for the equalizer as Thomas Melvin recieves the ball from Sisbarro. He challenges the Mustang defenders, gets an opening and tries to chip the ball towards Tunar, but Mustang goalkeeper Orlando Velazquez is there to scoop up the ball.
Next play, Michael Senese tries to double the Mustang lead, but Varrone steps up to make the save. Wildcats down 1-0 at halftime.
In the second half, Garrett Lee with possession as he challenges the Mustang defender and makes a nice spin move. He passes the ball to Tunar and finds Thomas Melvin who taps the ball into the back of the net for the equalizer. Due to lightning in the area, the game ends during the second half and won’t be rescheduled so the final score is a tie at 1-1.
