B13 Laterza went into this game as the underdogs. Qualifying to the Quarterfinals only second in their bracket. They had to win every game to make it to the finals.
Rafael scored the first goal from a great combination play that started with Manny Plata to Phillip Avalos to Niko Urban, who had the assist. Barcelona tied the score 1-1. While NMSC was making a run to score, before the half, they suffered a great offensive loss. Rafael Espinoza took a hard foul and had to leave the game with a concussion. This meant a hard fought defensive game to the end. The game went into overtime and then PK's. The game was won in PK's by an amazing save from Emilio Carbajal and goals from Ethan Schroeder, Niko Urban, and the winning PK by Tristan Trepas.
It was a great team effort, all the boys played hard for the "W". They made NMSC proud!
Final score NMSC 3- TFC Barcelona 1
