Game Recap

As expected the matchup between FHN (#2 state rank) and Lowell (#12 state rank) was going to be a battle. the two teams sparred for most of the first half. FHN whose offensive attack consisted of serving long balls into the box or long throw ins. The plan worked as they scored on a scrum in the box when Lowell GK was knocked to the ground but no call was made, and FHN was able to put the ball in the net. The half ended at 1-0 but the action was only getting started.
The second half saw Lowell take control with good early possession of the ball, this flow created a number of opportunities that resulted in 2 goals in the second half. The first was 2 minutes into the half, when Braiden Hamilton put a through ball to Ezra Stadt who was able to slot it passed the keeper to tie the game. 10 minutes later, Jonny Draigh intercepted a pass and took it straight to goal, and slotted that ball passed the keeper. LHS was ahead 2-1.
The game energy was high, and the quality matched the intensity. However, Lowell could not hold back the D2 top ranked team as they scored the game winner with 5 minutes left in the game. Lowell played well, one of their best games of the year but it would not be good enough to win the District Championships.
Coach O’Keefe said; “I was really proud of the boys today. They did not give up when they fell behind in the first half and played very well in the second half. I really believe we were inches away from winning this game. Sometimes that the difference when you play a quality opponent “.
