Western 4, Eastern 2

Mason May scored a brace for the Panthers, who overcame a 1-0 halftime deficit to take the 4-2 win on the Comets’ field. Also for Western, Chris Root had a goal and an assist, Nic Bewley scored a goal, Zac Simpson had an assist and ‘keeper Edgar Sanchez made four saves.

“Eastern played a good first half. They put a lot of pressure on us and they’re pretty solid at playing the long ball,” Western coach Mike Roe said, noting his squad was fortunate to trail by just one goal at halftime. “We came out in the second half and made some adjustments defensively. It’s not often that we man-mark somebody, but we had to keep the ball off Jordan VanMatre’s foot. He was creating a lot for them. Chris Carter did a really nice job of putting a lot of pressure on Jordan and limiting his time and touches with the ball.”

VanMatre scored both of Eastern’s goals. Delon Tuggle had seven saves in goal.

Eastern coach John VanMatre liked how his squad played. He was nonplussed with the officiating.

“Normally I don’t complain about refs, but the ref really handed them the game,” he said. “He gave them two PKs that were not [justified] and on their third goal, our defender had the ball cleanly and he got clipped from behind, falls down, and they go in and score. So three of their four goals, in a well-refed game, they would not have happened. It was a young guy who hasn’t refed a whole lot and this match was just too fast-paced for him.”
