Select tops Ajax

The under-19 BUSC Select traveled to Brentwood on Oct. 12 and brought their shooting shoes, coming home with a 5-2 victory. The game started slowly with each team probing, and Select high pressure paid off. Luis Garcia stole a throw-in and went go goal, going low left for the unassisted score in the 15th minute. In the 20th minute, Alex Williams made an alert quick restart on a throw-in and Drake Foote took it down the left all the way to goal and finished for the 2-0 lead.

In the 31st minute, Jack Simmons fed Ogb Kanu, whose drive was blocked. It shot up in the air and fell to Foote, who collected his second goal of the game, with Select ahead 3-0. Select upped their lead in the 34th minute. Collin LaPorte started and finished a give and go with Foote and the Select went to the half up 4-0.

Juan Anaya made one tricky save, and the back line of Joey Repac, Zac Pinard, and Williams were solid. The Brentwood Ajax did not quit, and scored 3 minutes into the half on a floater, and in the 23rd minute off a corner kick scramble. But the Select finished off the game with a dagger goal. Garret Leone played a ball over the top to the corner to an onrushing Simmons. His cross found Arthur Kuo all alone back post and he finished with authority for the 5-2 final.
