Match Report: Late Goal Crushes Ohlone Hopes of Victory

  • Game Day: Tuesday, October 5, 2010
  • Ohlone of Coast South Division, Conference Match
  • Las Positas @ Ohlone
  • Ohlone 2, Las Positas 2

A physical battle puts Ohlone at door of pushing Las Positas home with a loss, but two long throws and a moment of indecision results in LPC getting a point against Ohlone.

LPC were up a half hour in when a long throw captures a near post header and Renegade keeper Elmer Ceja could only get a hand on it to force it top of the net. Jarod Fluke’s long day of fighting hard to get the ball results in a spectacular goal when LPC keeper George Gutierrez is beaten far side when Fluke strips the outside back near the corner of the penalty box and levels the game.

George Mayer II, found an aggressive side eager to spoil Mayer’s chances, but a clumsy tackle lines Mayer up for a solid penalty kick finish and the game winner if time would not travel near 4 minutes past the games end.

A duplicate of LPC’s earlier long throw gives the game leveler and Ohlone upset with what should have been their second conference victory.

LPC see two players sent off for verbal confrontations on the match official.

“We gave them a momentary chance to recover their errors and they took full advantage of it. We must keep our discipline. This game was ours to win. Now we must take the positive of this recognizing that we lost to this team last year, we now have a point against them, we need another point or three from another top team coming up.” Coach Nordmo.
