Andalusia Shuts Out Troy Dragons
Taking the field in the first half included Marcus Ingram, Zachary Morgan, Rhett Riley, Mitchell Clark, Nicholas Lawson, Armon Momenpour, Joshua Rizzo, Daniel Bonds, Lee Mills, Blake Jackson, and Caleb Dierksheide.
The Andalusia team played an excellent game scoring four goals in the first half. The goals were scored by Zachary Morgan (2), Marcus Ingram (1) and Lee Mills (1).
The team did an excellent job in passing the ball and finding open players. It was a team effort in scoring the goals. The midfielders, wings and defenders only allowed the Troy Dragons to penetrate into Andalusia's half of the field twice in the first half. The defenders quickly tackled the Troy Dragons, won the ball and sent it to the forwards to move the ball into Dragon territory. Substituting for Mitchell Clark and Nicholas Lawson in the first half was Evan Brooks and Tally Morrow.
In the second half, Andalusia United scored three more goals. Marcus Ingram, Blake Jackson and Zachary Morgan had one goal each in the second half.
The player of the game goes to Lee Mills for his awesome defense and his goal from the midfield stripe.
