Soccer: Capitals Control WF-R, 4-2; Finals 6:30pm Thursday.

The Caps started the night with good speed and lots of pressure.  The first goal was scored 2 minutes into the game when CJ Tikvart received a nice ball from Brian Haines on the right wing and carried it toward the near post.  CJ cut back left, losing his defender and hitting a nice left footed goal.  

The Caps kept the ball in their attacking third for much of the first half.  Although missing out on really nice opportunities and having 10-12 shots on goal, the first half ended with the the Caps leading 1-0.

The second half began just as the first half ended.  The Caps controlled the play of the game, continuing to shoot on goal.  About nine minutes into the half, WF-R took the ball toward the Broughton goal and the defense was unable to clear it.  After bouncing around for 60-90 seconds in the Caps defensive third, WF-R was able to score from the left wing on a nice shot by Alex Bidwell. 

But the tie did not last long.  Less than two minutes later, Lassiter Tollison receives a ball on the left wing and cut it just inside the left corner of the penalty box where he ripped it into the side netting at the far post.  Nice momentum changer.

The Broughton midfield and defense kept the ball in the attacking third and five minutes later John Pace received a ball on the left wing and fed Tollison in the center of the penalty area where he slipped the ball past the keeper, stretching the Caps lead to 3-1.

But WF-R was not willing to quit.  With nine minutes left in the game, a long ball was sent toward the Caps goal that flew over the keeper and landed at the feet of Bidwell who finished it for his second goal of the night.

The Caps went back on attack.  Taylor Birdsall stopped the ball from his defensive position and passed and moved until he was at the left corner of the field.  He passed the ball back to Tollison on the left wing who sent the ball to Forrest Lasso's head as he raced through the box, where he headed into the net giving the Caps their 4-2 lead.

Come to Broughton at 6:30pm Thursday night to watch Broughton defend their Conference Tournament Crown against Leesville.
