Team Highlights: In the first 20 minutes the play was pretty even, then Jesus Sanchez got Manson on the scoreboard at the 29th minute. The first half ended 1 – 0. In the second half Colville came out strong and put some pressure in the Manson end but no real shots on goal. Then at the 5 minute mark of the second half, Manson switched the ball across the field to a wide open Oscar Ocampo who ran down the side and gave a beautiful cross and Colton Hodges headed it in. Just eight minutes later Oscar gave another pass to Cristian Montes who scored and put the game out of reach. Manson’s defense continued to keep Colville’s attack closed down. Manson added two more goals: Salvador Leyva crossed the ball from the right corner and Jesus Sanchez volleyed it in the goal and Cristian Montes got Manson’s final goal on a breakaway putting the ball passed the Colville keeper.
Coach’s name and quotes/Comments: This was a whole team effort. Our defense kept Colville at only two shots on goal and the midfield put lots of pressure all over the field. We had some really good assists and unselfish passing. Everyone played really well and hard. We celebrated Cinco de Mayo with cinco goals!
