Bulls Storm Back To Tie Huskies

The Bulls held possession well throughout the match but fell quickly to a 2-0 deficit due to a strong New Hampton counterattack. Down 2-0 after the half, the Bulls came storming back with some tidy work in the box from striker Alvaro Arteaga dancing past a few defenders and slotting the ball into the bottom right corner. The Bulls enjoyed the lions share of possession in the second half creating five more opportunities on goal. Ten minutes before the final whistle striker Alvaro Arteaga powered in the equalizer from the top of the eighteen-yard box. With only minutes left in the match, Pat Heffernan nearly gave the Bulls the victory drilling the corner of the right cross bar off a free kick. Riley Gustafson impressed between the sticks in his first start for the Bulls making a crucial acrobatic save palming a New Hampton free-kick just over the bar to keep the Bulls in the match. The defense played well as a unit lead by Keegan Penny and Michael Trask. The defense worked all afternoon tirelessly with important shifts put in by Colin Casey, Ryan Trieu, Chris Lee, Quang Minh Do, and Wei Hao Cai. The midfield unit showed poise and a good offensive shape lead by Pat Heffernan and Louis Liu. Hayden Dahl, Adrian Schoettel, Joey Pollak, Teddy Gemmell-Hughes, Ash Palmer, and Griffin Doherty all played well on the width putting in solid offensive and defensive shifts. Griffin Lewis, Octave Seux, and Sam Sheffield exercised speed and strength up top allowing the Bulls to have strong transition play throughout the second half. The Bulls will look to shore up their defensive shape as they look on to hosting Hebron Academy on Wednesday.
