  • Just a few minutes later, Smith played a ball across from the endline that was hit out by Donoway but to junior Tariq Lee who had his shot blocked in front.
  • In the 55th minute, Kalu Ume got his feet free at the corner of the six-yard box but fired his shot off the near post.
  • Junior Dylan Holy sent a header wide of the net as both he and Donoway played the ball at the six-yard box.
