  • Canada 1, Ohlone 0

After battling wild wind storms earlier this week and a just as bizarre goal, Canada takes match points from Ohlone.

The Renegades pushed deep on the Colts this afternoon and found the width at times with George Mayer and Pierre Bruggeman, but were not able to really click until the second half when swarms of chances from corners and throw-ins would get Ohlone the opportunities they needed to bring back a goal.

The first and only goal of the game at minute 16 came from a twisted fate of luck as Benjamin Hyams found a cleared corner kick at his feet about 35 yards from the Ohlone goal, lined up on the left post. As Ohlone cleared the box, Hyams sharply driven ball was coming to Iman Aghel, keeper, but a last second mule kick flick at the top of the penalty box from center striker, Kevin Rodriquez redirected the ball surely heading for the lower left post all the way to the upper right corner.

A stunner for sure, and a goal to be remembered but, not by Ohlone. Ohlone’s keep Iman Aghel, was forced off his line on four separate occasions to keep Ohlone in the match all the way until the end. A last half push by Ohlone could not get the equalizer.
