NE takes one from NF 3-1

The first half was dominated by the dazzling footwork of NF’s Guyan Randall, who scored first after a brilliant rush from midfield. Play was back and forth throughout the half, with NE unable to get anything through the formidable section F defense. However, ten seconds into the second half, Nate Kring of section E, dashing down the right side touchline, was able to slip a magical shot into the lower right corner, evening the score. With the momentum behind them, the players of NE put several shots on goal throughout the second half, including a fabulous long distance shot from Bill Fruhan, which brought the score to 2-1. The new frogs made a last effort during the waning minutes of the game to pull the goalie and pressure the Section E defense, but to no avail, as another long distance lob from Kelli McKechnie in the last minute of the game brought the final tally to 3-1. Some especially noteworthy performances came from NF’s Sandra Lin, and NE’s Jon Andersen.
