AMBOCA serves Deli 5 3 loss

Just as it looked like AMBOCA had the game sewn up with a 4-1 lead, The Deli scored a couple to edge back within one. However, The Deli's resurgence was cut short by another AMBOCA goal as the latter took the game 5-3.

Just as it looked like AMBOCA had the game sewn up with a 4-1 lead, The Deli scored a couple to edge back within one. However, The Deli’s resurgence was cut short by another AMBOCA goal as the latter took the game 5-3.

AMBOCA’s Andrew Scoffin set the score at 3-1 near the end of the first half when he knocked a bouncing ball in the goal-box into the top corner as The Deli’s goalkeeper, Stephen Wohlfarth, went to grab it. Scoffin scored AMBOCA’s fourth goal three minutes into the second half before The Deli came to life with a pair of goals by Anja Aird and Mitchell Read.

Despite a visible change in the game’s flow in the second half, neither coach was too sure what initiated the conversion.

“I don’t know,” said AMBOCA coach Hanne Hoefs. “I really have a strong team. I can’t say fatigue is a factor because it would apply to the other team.

“Sometimes when kids think they have it in the bag, they slack off a bit. But I think they played well.”

“It could be they play better on that side of the field—I don’t know,” said Deli coach Sharla Walsh.

With two minutes remaining on the clock, AMBOCA’s Eric Fekete scored his second goal of the game on a tight angle shot from the right wing, setting the final score in stone. AMBOCA’s first goal was scored by Calden Hoefs.

Jaylene Kelly, who scored The Deli’s opening goal, was named her team’s MVP.

“She was the one that gave it all tonight,” said Walsh. “She was (saying), ‘Where ever you want me to play coach.’ She was just go, go, go.”

Jasmine Potvin received the corresponding honour on the AMBOCA side.

“She went into goal,” said Welsh. “She did great. I know she doesn’t like it at all—I don’t have a goalie, nobody really likes it. Yet, she volunteered to go in.”
