CARO 0 - USA 2 (0-1; 0-1 stopped with 17 min left due to lightnings)

Game Date
Sep 30, 2020



The whole world knew that lightnings were on their way and both the hosting TIgers team from CARO and the visitors from USA were hoping to complete the game.

First half, started with a well balanced caliber from both sides which lasted for 35 minutes. Then, on a corner kick by the USA player, the CARO defender could not contain one of the USA players who deflected it with his foot to beat freshman and goalie Greysen Chapelo.

The rest of the first half remained balanced with chances from both sides which did not capitalize with goals and had to retrieve to the benches with a 1-0 to the favor of the visitors.

The speech from the coaching staff was again all about marking a player during corner kicks while in the box. Positive comments included the great game the Tigers were playing with good combinations and passing. Some bad touches left the CARO players lose the momentum during some breakaways which could have rewarded the hosts but in vain. Worth noting was the goalie Chapelo who made an amazing save by legally tackling one of the USA players.

Second half started with determination from the Tigers to tie the game but unfortunately, a bad tackle in the Caro defensive zone punished the hosts with a penalty kick which was converted into the second goal for the visitors from USA.

All of the sudden, lightnings were in sight and the AD approached both coaches to halt the game and wait for the 20 minutes. Finally, after further discussion, the coach from CARO decided to suspend the whole game with 17 minutes left to the game.

Next and final game of the season before District will be away to CPAC on Monday October 5th at 5:30 pm.
