Both teams had chances in the first 20 minutes of the game, but Broughton struck first when junior Elvis Wiredu drew a foul inside the Leesville box as he was attacking the goal slightly more than midway through the half. Drooz converted the penalty kick to give Broughton a 1-0 lead.
Broughton scored again about 12 minutes later when the Leesville keeper couldn't hold on to a shot from outside by Gettinger. A hustling Mohamud was there to convert the rebound from close range to make the score 2-0 going into halftime.
Broughton got some breathing room about midway through the half, though, when Mohamud took a pass from Wiredu down the right side and curled a beautiful shot inside the far post.
With a few of its players battling cramps, Broughton fought off several attacks by Leesville thanks to strong defense from juniors Hyu A and Grant Tyler and senior David Ridgeway. The final goal came with just under a minute remaining in the game, when senior Eli White drew a foul in the Leesville box. Gettinger converted the penalty kick to make the final score 4-1.
Broughton's next game is Monday night at Millbrook.
Finally, a shout out to Broughton seniors Sean Betts and Sam Holden, for ably handling the announcing and time-keeping responsibilities for home games.
