Kristina Bonamo sent in Holly Crane on a through ball, and Holly was able to put it in the corner just out of the reach of Phoenix’s excellent keeper. Phoenix’s young keeper made many fine saves in the half from long shots such as Leni Kinsli’s (Uni) long blast from the right side.
At the end of the 1st passed the ball from a goalkick to Phoenix’ Center forward and she tucked it home! 1-1 Isabelle Gil, United’s centerback repelled many Phoenix attacks, as Phoenix’ relenting pressure showed them why they’re in 1st half, United’s keeper made an uncommon mistake, and place!
In the second half, Phoenix stormed back again, and hit the left post on a great shot, after nice passing at midfield sent in the left wing. United’s defense kept strong enough, though missing several players. Holly Crane was able to make another 3 runs with passing from Kianoosh, Kristina and Jennifer and Lilian, finally broke free and scored another. 2-1 United. Then later in the half, United’s goalkeeper tipped up a super shot by Phoenix’s right wing from the corner and was able to hold on.
Though probably not affecting standings very much, the game showed that a full United squad could play on even keel with one of the best BISL sides!
United’s best: Holly Crane and Isabelle on defense.
