Eagle Construction takes flight in second half

With the first half ending with Eagle Construction up 6-4, the game had all the indications of a barnburner. However, only the leading Eagle team continued to flame in the second half as they built an 11-6 win over Henry Gulch Exploration.

With the first half ending with Eagle Construction up 6-4, the game had all the indications of a barnburner. However, only the leading Eagle team continued to flame in the second half as they built an 11-6 win over Henry Gulch Exploration in U-13 soccer play at the Canada Games Centre on Wednesday.

Eagle Construction lost the teams’ first match, by a similar margin, on October 26, but the addition of a couple players in the lineup made the difference this time around, said Eagle Construction coach Henry Asp.

“We had the Jensen boys back this game and that definitely made a difference,” said Asp.

The Jensen boys’ impact on the game was clear, with Trygg scoring five goals and Peter scoring two.

Named MVP for Eagle was Anna Janowicz, who kicked her way to a hat trick in the game in a handful of scoring opportunities.

“She did really well this game; she was where she should be and just played her heart out,” said Asp. “She scored three goals – scored one left-footed.”

Getting the corresponding honour on the Gulch bench was Lauren Lesley.

“She had a very good, aggressive game on forward,” said Henry Gulch coach Peter Grundmanis. “She missed five goal (attempts) but they were very close. She was in the right spot at the right time, doing the right thing, but they just didn’t go in.”

Getting the bulk of goals for Henry Gulch was Jono Runions with four.
