NORTHVIEW HIGH SCHOOL: 1
Thursday's second game of the week for the Eagles brought them out to Northview High School for yet another away conference matchup.
Anticipating another tough game, the goal of the match was to create chances through connecting with teammates. It did not take long for them to make the connections work out with a nice up, back and through pattern played through to Will Bush to finish off with the assist from Alberto Gimeno just one minute into the game. The next goal came just 6 minutes later, this time with Alberto finishing off a nice play that came from the width this time. Gerrit Boer received his ball on the right side before passing the ball to the top of the box for Alberto. Will Bush got his second goal of the match after a lung busting run from Graham de Jonge up the right side of the field for a slot into the box. To finish off the half, Will VandenBerg delivered a free kick straight into the goal after some good play by Owen VanderWerf to win the foul and send the Eagles into the half with a 4-0 lead.
The second half started where the first left off, with Will Bush completing his hattrick off a corner from Gerrit just a minute in. Their connection popped up once again 9 minutes into the half, with Gerrit receiving the ball and beating his defender to slot Bush in for his 4th goal of the game and Gerrit's hattrick of assist's. Gerrit was able to get on the scoresheet himself by winning a PK and sending it into the net. Northview got a goal back after a ball was cleared by Alex Nelson, but a Northview player one timed it into the empty net. The match was completed after a slotted ball found Nate Evenhouse's feet for him to slot home nicely.
Overall, a great performance by the Eagles and good preparation for the rivalry game next week against East Grand Rapids!
