POUR-ING IT ON
Late goal gives Junior Lone Stars 2-1 win
DREXEL HILL, PA-- Jerome Pour's 85th minute goal secured a 2-1 win for Junior Lone Star FC over Electric City Shock SC Saturday night.
The Stars started the match well in the first 15 minutes by exchanging some crisp passes, though they lack the intensity that was needed to open up the Shock's defense and neither side had a whiff of the goal until the half hour mark when Seydou Ba missed a sitter with the goal wide open. Minutes later, Ebere Goodluck had a shot on goal that was easily saved by Steven Rerick in goal for the Shock.
A minute after the double substitution from the Shock, the deadlock was broken in the 40th minute by an own goal when a defender from the Shock tried to head the ball back to Rerick who was already off his line. Seydou Ba should've had a simple tap in for his first goal of the season but he decided to allow the ball to just enter the net for an own goal.
The Shock equalized from a beauty of a free kick by Korbia Keene at the hour mark. Standing 25 yards from the right side of goal, Keene curved the ball over the Stars defenders and into the top left corner with Prince Monyan, in goal for the Stars, remaining motionless.
In the 85th minute, two late substitutes combined for the Stars' second goal. Vlandy Eric Slueue dribbled past three defenders and sent a powerful left-footed shot that Rerick couldn't hold on to and Pour had plenty of time to score his first goal of the season.
