Strong Effort Earns the Flash a Tie Against White Clay

Oct. 26, 2019 -- The Flash played a strong overall game on both sides of the ball, earning a 2-2 tie against the White Clay SC Cougars in Landenberg, Pa.

The Flash stormed out to a 2-0 first half lead and controlled play in the early part of the game. When White Clay had its best scoring chance, Kenny made a good initial save coming out to stop the attacker, followed by a loose ball in front of the net and a clear by Tyler. The Flash scored the game's first goal at the 15-minute mark, when Charlie passed to Jackson, who squeezed a low shot just inside the left post for his second tally in as many games. Jackson nearly scored again off a nice cross from Avinh, who sent several strong passes into the box throughout the game. Just before halftime, the Flash went up 2-0 when Tyler scored on a rebound off a shot by Avinh.

The Flash moved the ball well in the second half, with several impressive passing plays. Will made a strong play on defense to stop a breakaway. However, despite the Flash's best defensive efforts, White Clay finally got on the board with 13 minutes to go, and followed that up with the equalizer in the last minute of play.

The Flash (3-3-1 Central League) go on the road for their next Central League game Nov. 2 at Penn Fusion.
