CFSC Panthers Get First NPSL Victory Wednesday Night Vs Storm FC

The first goal came in the 25th min off of a set piece. Forward @williameyang struck the ball hitting the near post bouncing across the goal mouth for @shaoschi_etienne to tap in.
The Panthers would make it 2-0 in the 29th minute when forward @alessandromazzetta intercepted the ball and took on his defender before sending a through ball to Will Eyang who faked a shot sending the keeper one way before calmly finishing in the opposite corner.
Immediately following the Panthers were able to create a 3v1 opportunity but the shot was off target. Right after that on the next possession Shaoschi Etienne would provide @asanchez19_ the ball on the wing and Asyed would quickly cross the ball in the box to William Eyang who cleanly finished bringing the scoreline to 3-0.
Following the third goal, Storm FC made some lineup changes that would prove beneficial to them as substitute Korey Dyer-Stewart would immediately finish off of a cross into the box bringing the scoreline to 3-1 in the 44th minute.
As the second half got started, the Storm would take control of the possession battle as the Panthers would rely on defensive shape which provided the Storm with more opportunities to shoot on frame. In the 60th min the Storm would cut the lead to 3-2 after forward Geobel Oquiendo made a near post run and finished a cross by Livan Del Rio.
In the 68th min the Panthers earned a had a freekick near the corner flag which was taken by midfielder Ryan Sandidge who floated a crosss from the right side to the back post to a climbing @niallcoulthard who headed home the ball beating the keeper to bring the scoreline to 4-2.
