However, Broughton showed their depth throughout the night and all 25 healthy players played in the game.
Back to the first half, Heritage took a 1-0 lead off a goal by Cap-8's leading scorer (Berk). That lead was short lived as Player of the Game Cesar Gonzalez played a free kick into the box to which Jacob Hill headed home to tie the game up. Heritage then scored again to take a 2-1 lead into halftime.
The Caps then came out after halftime and proceeded to dominate the final 40 minutes. Freshman Edson Candela-Perez scored five minutes into the second half to tie the game up for Broughton and not two minutes later - Cesar played a beautiful ball to Andrew Rossetti who coolly slotted home a left footed shot to give the Caps the lead for good 3-2.
The defense and midfield controlled the remainder of the game as Seniors Gray Gwaltney, Jacob Hill, Esteban Salinas-Noyola, Caleb Adams and Juniors Ewan Reynolds, Lex Varani and Sophomores Duncan Coffey and Ivey O'Brien kept Heritage from even getting a good shot in the second half.
And stated above, ALL 25 PLAYERS played and contributed to the all important victory.
The Caps now have a week and a half of rest and practice before the first round of playoffs - which start on Saturday, November 5th.
