Soccer: Game cut short, ends in scoreless tie

The numbers didn't quite add up the way Broughton hoped Wednesday night, as they were unable to score against a visiting Clayton team in a 0-0 game that was called at halftime because of lightning.

The Caps hit the crossbar or post on three shots, had one goal called back because of an offsides penalty (one of several called against Broughton), failed to convert on repeated corner kicks, and missed just high or wide on countless other shots.

As the first half wound down, junior Elvis Wiredu finally put a shot on frame, forcing the Clayton keeper to make a nice save to preserve the shutout.

Clayton, meanwhile, only threatened Broughton's goal once -- on a free kick from just outside the box early in the first half.

Broughton's junior varsity team managed to get on the scoreboard in the early game, earning a 2-0 victory over the Comets. The first goal was scored by Jacob Hill, off assists by Luis Hernandez and William Hernandez. The second goal was scored by William Hernandez off an assist by Angel Sanchez.

The defense, led by sweeper Estaban Salinas, played strong throughout the game.

Finally, a shout-out to Broughton's new scoreboard, which featured photos of the players during introductions. Check it out at Thursday night's home game against Panther Creek.
