The Chippewa Strikers U13B C3 team traveled to River Falls for their first away game. As the game started, the Chippewa Strikers appeared to be the dominate team. Lots of passing and ball control kept the ball in River Falls half. 1 minute in, William was able to land one on target to start the scoring. 1 minute later, G played a nice ball to Colby's feet who was able to knock it in. River Falls made a couple runs to the other end, but the Strikers defense, led by Jack, were able to keep them out. At the 9 minute mark, William was able to send another one past the River Falls keeper. At minute 38, River Falls took advantage of some confusion at the back line and placed a goal in net. Waseem finished off the half after collecting his own rebound, sending it to score.
2nd half started with the Strikers still maintaining control. G found Marshall pushing through the defense to put another point on the board for the Strikers. 7 minutes later, Waseem took the ball in again. William followed next with a score at the 54 minute mark. The Strikers started passing the ball more attempting to give everyone a chance to touch the ball. Henry sent one in for Ewan to strike the back of the net with 14 minutes left in the game. G took one on his own 1 minute later. Jack was able to come out of goal to play the field and was soon rewarded when Waseem pushed on to him for a final score right before the game expired. The team worked together and did not ever back down. Final: Strikers 10, River Falls 1.
