Gold Team Roll Past AFC Clayton in 4-0 Shutout
The Gold Team continued their fantastic run of form, recording a 4-0 shutout over ADASL opponents, AFC Clayton. The big win extends the team's winning streak to three games.
After a goalless first half, sophomore, Jordan Richardson, opened up the scoring after Reed Blevin's through ball deflected into his path, where he volleyed home to break the deadlock (1-0).
Not long after, from a set piece about 25-yards away from goal, Yanni Angelides met the in-swinging cross with his head, sending the ball across the goal where Alex Westin was there to tap-in at the back post, doubling the lead (2-0).
With about 20 minutes remaining in the final half, a foul on the right wing, just outside the box, gave Richardson an opportunity from a free kick. The left winger swerved the ball across the goalkeeper and found the top left corner for goal number three (3-0).
Finally, just before the game's end, right winger, Yanni Angelides was fouled inside the box after tussling with the opposing center back, earning him a spot kick. Angelides stepped up to the opportunity and finished nicely underneath the goalkeepers outstretched arm, sealing the shutout win for the Gold Team (4-0).
The defensive work from the entire team, especially the back line, earned the team another clean sheet. While holding the opposing team's attacks to a minimum, the full backs also contributed going forward, serving plenty of crosses and aiding the attack where possible.
The Gold Team's next game is two weeks from now, as they have a by-week coming up, but will be working hard all week to be ready to defend their streak against Terminus-KLS.
