Springfield Demize – 8
La Fuerza – 2
In front of a crowd of 180, the Demize forced themselves on “La Fuerza” tonight at the Lake Country Soccer Dome. Led by Mike Gow’s 4 goals, the Demize took control midway through the second quarter with 3 goals in 3 minutes, taking a 4-2 lead that they never relinquished.
The visitors scored first this evening, taking advantage of a Demize penalty, scoring with the man advantage. While Springfield came back to take a 2-1 lead, La Fuerza kept it close when they tied it at 2-2, with all of the goals coming during man-advantage situations.
It was Gow (MSU/Lebanon) who got the eventual game winner, when he one-timed a ball that came from the right side to his position just outside the box on the left, and a second a minute later to extend the lead to two midway through the second half. The Demize tightened up their defense and moved to 3-0 on the season with the win.
Goals were scored by Dave Emnett (Drury,SLUH), Kyler Temple (Drury/Kickapoo), Taylor Stacy (Drury/Lincoln NE) and Quincy Conduff (Hendrix/Kickapoo) this evening. Rodolfo Monroy and Jensel Olascoaga scored for La Fuerza (Edwardsville, IL).
