We played a superb defensive game in the rain on our home field for 75 mins only to allow a goal in the last 5 minutes. The conditions made for slippery soccer with lots of dispossession and quick counterattacks. Our boys outplayed a very good Andover side for long stretches and generated several chances by connecting short passes in tight spaces. The goal for us never came, however, and Andover took advantage of a late 2v1. The goal and the win was well earned, but it stung nonetheless after such a strong effort in the rain. Both teams played with outstanding sportsmanship.
