In the first half, we played a relatively conservative but worked on linking up from the back and through the midfield. We should have finished a few chances but went into halftime tied 0-0.
The second half opened up a bit with Colfax sending more guys forward, which allowed us to catch them on the counter. Our first goal came early in the second half with Meza bring the ball down at the far post from a pinpoint cross from Dan and then finished nicely. The game got chippy thereafter with Stu and Javi both going down after late tackles from the Colfax crew. The last goal came with a few minutes left in the game — Jin and Kyle linked up for a nice give-and-go a midfield that freed Kyle up for a one v one with the keeper. Kyle kept his composure and beat the keeper on the dribble, and then cooly passed the ball into the back of the net — great goal man. View the table here.
