PHOENIX VS CLEMENTE 9/24/15
Clemente Soccer finished up their third match of the week facing the Phoenix Firebirds. Clemente began the game strong, pushing the ball forward and demonstrating solid defense. Junior Arnold Rodriguez played an outstanding game, stopping Phoenix time and time again from creating goal-scoring opportunities. Phoenix was able to capitalize on one play and scored a goal on the 12th minute. Clemente responded back with intense pressure, attacking Phoenix’s goal, creating multiple goal attempts that resulted in missed opportunities. First half ended 0-1 in favor of Phoenix. At the beginning of second half, Clemente started with possession of the ball. Keeping the pressure high, Clemente was able to equalize the game with a goal from senior forward Christopher Martinez, though Phoenix was able to regain the lead with only five minutes left in the game. Clemente had a great opportunity to equalize on the last play of the game, but unfortunately the ball went past the end line, and the game concluded with a 2-1 lost for the Clemente Wildcats.
