Sarnia FC U11 White Lose Home Opener
tuesday may 7, 2013
The Sarnia FC U11 (White) took to the pitch Monday night in their season opener at the Dante Club.
In their first game, playing on the “big” field, Sarnia FC hosted the Southwest Lightning from London. Both teams were very evenly matched in the first half of play with the shots being 4-3 in favour of the visitor’s side. However, it was the home team that held a 1 – 0 lead heading in to the second half as mid-fielder Blake Wallace score on a free kick at the 14 minute mark.
Unfortunately for Sarnia FC, the Lightning came out in the second guns a blazing and outshooting the hometown boys 9-0. Southwest would get on the board at the 27 minute mark of the second have on a nice passing play to tie the game up at 1-1. To the crowd’s dismay, the Lightning would score the eventual game winner just 2 minutes later on a goal mouth scramble.
Sarnia goaltender, Colton Williamson made some spectacular saves throughout the second half to help keep his team close.
Sarnia travels to London on Saturday morning to take on the London Athletic Spartans at 11am.
