Tacoma Tide FC 1:0 Victoria Highlanders
June 20, 2010
TacomaFC.com – For 58 minutes, all indications were that a rainy Sunday afternoon soccer game filled with sloppy play between the Tide FC and the Highlanders was going to result in a scoreless draw. That’s when Tacoma forwards Rory Agu and Chris Sanders changed everything.
With possession nearing the left corner, Agu rifled a long cross into the box, finding Sanders. At point-blank range within the middle of the goal box, Sanders took the ball and buried it in the back left corner of the net with a header, beating a helpless Brandon Watson in goal for the Highlanders to give Tacoma the game’s lone score.
“It was a buildup. We knocked the ball into Rory….and (he) knocked a fabulous ball in,” said Tide FC head coach Gerry Gray.
“Nice cross and point-blank header, not much I could do when it’s put into the corner like that,” said Watson, Victoria’s keeper.
“When we got that goal, it was a big momentum boost for us,” said Tacoma’s Sanders.
