Game Recap

The Mineral Ridge Rams hosted the Crestview Rebels tonight in the District Semifinal of the OHSAA State Tournament. It was a cold night, and after a rainy night and day, the field was quite soft and slippery. The 1st half was very evenly matched with both sides having a couple quality chances, but neither team would be able to score. The Rams would hold the edge in time of possession but would have to settle for a 0-0 score line at halftime. The 2nd half would see the Rams build upon that edge in possession, finding the opening goal just 4 minutes in. TJ Gaydosh would possess the ball just inside the top of the penalty box where he would find Gonzalo Arnes in the midst of Rebel defenders. Arnes would turn and shoot with his preferred left foot to beat the Crestview keeper and give the Rams a 1-0 lead. As short 4 minutes later, the Rams would score again as Dylan Henning would play a ball into the box from the right side that Arnes would also put past the keeper, giving the Rams a 2-0 lead. To their credit, the Rebels did not concede. They continued to battle, trying to work their way back into the match. With 10 minutes remaining in the game, Matt Nery would score on a shot from outside the box that would hit the upper 90 of the Rams goal. Crest view had closed the gap to 2-1. The final 10 minutes would be desperate for both teams. The Rams would prove good enough to hold of the Rebels and earn their first entry into a District Final. The Rams will face United Local on Saturday 10/28/17. The match will be played at Canfield High School at 5:00pm. Good Luck Rams!
