Game 15 Report (Jan 30, 2016)

January 30, 2016
Our 4th game of 2016, and 13 players again. We were hoping to have some healthy subs.
We came out strong. Good ball movement and collaborative play earned us a corner 6 minutes in. Jamieson had a strong cross, but we were unable to finish. The Whitecaps came back with a flurry of shots 5 minutes later. Jamieson would get the games first goal off a solid cross, which bounced off the corner post then the keepers back into the net! Unfortunately the ref awarded a penalty shot 1 minute later, and the game was tied. At the 33 minute mark the Whitecaps would get another goal, on what appeared to be an offside run. Then at 40 minutes they would get a corner and a 3rd goal.
Although down by two, we came out with a decent effort in the 2nd half. Jamieson had a chance at 53 minutes. But the 98Whitecaps added to their lead at 57 minutes. For the remainder of the half it looked like we were playing 5 v 5. A lot of back and forth, but no commitment from either team. We would get two injuries again and finish the game with 11 again. It looked like we would get our own penalty shot from a hand ball, but the ref wouldn’t award it. The 98Whitecaps lost focus, trying to get their 5th. At 89 minutes Jamieson would get his (and our) 2nd goal of the day. 1 minute later, Marcus would get our third! Things were interesting. However time would run out on us.
All in, we had 6 shots, while the 98Whitecaps at 9.
Dragons – 3
N98Whitecaps - 4
