After both teams exchanged penalty kicks in the first half, Noe Martinez got a goal in the second half for the Lancers that proved to be the difference. 

“It was a great game to watch regardless of who you were rooting for,” East Union coach Jason Silva said. “It was very fast and physical. Both teams left everything on the field.

I am proud of my guys for staying composed and disciplined after falling behind. Most teams fall apart. EU kept it together and fought back for the victory.”

According to Silva, Jonathan Ponce and Alberto Gomez played an outstanding game. 

Manny Magana got the Timberwolves on the board first with a penalty kick followed 10 minutes later by the Lancers’ Alex Arroyo tying the game up with another penalty kick.
