In a game where the Caps were on the back foot most of the match, Broughton fought like champions but lost a tough one to first place Millbrook 2-1.
The second half started much like the first and Millbrook scored two goals in a short period of time to go up 2-0 with 20 minutes left in the name. The Caps then showed their mettle and dominated the last period. First, Broughton looked to have scored off a shot from Andrew Rossetti, which appeared to inch over the line before the diving save by the Millbrook GK, but again - no call. Junior Erik Johnsen entered the game and provided an immediate impact by
finishing a long free kick from Senior Jacob Hill to make it 2-1. Senior Sam Stein provided the last chance as he made a great run into the box and appeared to be fouled - but - it wasn't called.
The blog would be remiss to not point out the contribution of Cesar Gonzalez and Lucas Beeson in the midfield who continually made run after run through to try to provide scoring chances and Graham Gunter, Lex Varani, Esteban Salinas-Noyola, Jacob Hill and Duncan Coffey for their work against the Millbrook offense.
Broughton finds itself in a must-win game tonight against 2nd place Leesville Road. Please go out there and support the Caps if you can.
