FLCC goal keeper, Brayden Kane kept the Lakers in it while the offense found its steam. The first half finished scoreless while Kane recorded 3 important saves.

Once the second half started, the Lakers found the energy they were looking for. They gained possession of the ball more than they did in the first half. The increase in possession paid off. Raquan Hinds found an open Felipe Gonzalez to knock in an FLCC goal on a corner kick. This was Gonzalez’s first career goal as a Laker. The Laker’s played the tight defense they needed and grabbed the win.
