Newark Soccer Club Under-11 Boys Division III
On September 21, at 8 a.m. Newark Earthquakes played Danville Mustang Galaxy in a battle of wills. The rain was present, but that did not stop the players from giving their all. The first half was hard fought with Galaxy going up 1-0 on a breakaway goal. Earthquakes had several chances to tie the score, but could not get the ball into the net.
However, with a motivating speech by Coach Andy Stewart at the break, the game would soon change. In the first five minutes of the second half, Earthquakes' Travis Welch tied the game 1-1. The pressure was now on the Galaxy as Earthquakes' Ryan Wilson found the back of the net for the go ahead goal. With ten minutes remaining in the game, Earthquakes' Ernesto Siva, who missed several attempts earlier, scored the final goal for a 3-1 Earthquakes win. Sportsmanship, teamwork, and hard work were displayed by all.
