Five straight goals give Titans win

AMBOCA’s Andrew Scoffin scored a hat trick in the final five minutes of play, but the hole his team was in was too deep.

Thrice tying the game after being down a goal in the first half, Titan Gaming eventually defeated AMBOCA 8-6 in U-13 soccer Wednesday at the Canada Games Centre.

Down 3-2 in the fading seconds of the first half, Titan’s Dylan Reed evened the score with a goal just before the double-whistle. Reed then carried his momentum into the second, pouring three more goals into the AMBOCA net, putting his team up 6-3. Teammate Logan Frasier, who also scored his team’s final goal, then made it 7-3 in minute-34.

“He had a pretty good game,” said Titan coach Tim Anderson of Reed, who was named MVP. “He usually scores a lot of goals.

“We just got on a roll there and Dylan gave us a bit of a cushion.”

Scoffin started his scoring spree just a minute after Frasier’s first goal, eventually getting the hattie in the final minute by faking a pass and cramming the ball in the bottom corner of the Titan net.

“Usually getting that far behind discourages a team,” said AMBOCA coach Grethe Holms. “But we seem to get more serious when we have to catch up. Maybe that got them back in it.

“It was not normal game for us, everybody usually works really hard.”

“I think their team picked it up a bit – mostly it was their team coming on strong,” said Anderson. “We had to defend there at the end to hang on.”

Kyle Wallace opened the scoring for Titan, followed by teammate Emily Wilson.

For AMBOCA, Camille Galloway scored first and Colden Hoefs put in two. Melissa Boone was named her team’s MVP.

“She played in all positions and really worked hard,” said Holms. “She came off her shifts just red in her face. She played defence, forward and goalie and she did great.”
