GS played a tough match at South Spencer but came up with the win in OT. Our offense was working well in the 1st half, but so was the Rebel’s. We gave up an early goal but came back and ended the first half tied 3-3. South Spencer had a lot of speed up top and that troubled our back line in the first half, but they were able to adapt and only allowed 1 additional goal in the second half and 14 min of OT. Justin Barthel had the game winning goal in the last few minutes of OT. Other goals were scored by Erick Hirsch, Preston Riggs, and 2 by Mosbah Alshwikh. Chris Spear, David Hirsch, and Justin Barthel had assists. The South Spencer field was short and narrow and created some new challenges for our team, but in the end they were able to put it in the back of the net 1 more time than South Spencer. GS will host Mater Dei on Sat at 12:30.
