Parkside shuts out Pocomoke to move to 5-0 on the spring season
POCOMOKE, MD.- Behind the go ahead game winning goal from Brady Mancha and an insurance goal from Ozzie Bonola, the Parkside Rams shut out Pocomoke 2-0 to move to 5-0 on the season. The loss drops the Warriors to 3-2.
Just a season after the Parkside Rams fell to La Plata 2-0 in the 2A State Semifinals, the Rams sit at 5-0 atop the Bayside this spring season. The Warriors on the other hand, in their first season under new head coach Chris Roberts, came into this one sitting at 3-1 with a lot of young talent.
We sat tied 0-0 at the half, both teams with a few pressures on the goal but the Rams really controlling the tempo in the first forty minutes of the game.
The Warriors picked up the pace in the section half, they threatened a few times but just unable to finish with a goal. Still tied with 5:32 to play, the Rams finally got on the board with a Brady Mancha left footed goal to break the tie. A few minutes later, Ozzie Bonola added another to put it out of reach as the Rams held on for the 2-0 win over Pocomoke.
It was a big night for the guys in goal, Gavin Grey (Parkside) and Cooper Hooks (Pocomoke) shutting out the offenses in the first 35 minutes. Hooks facing shot after shot, with too many saves to count.
The Rams return to the field Wednesday when they host Mardela at 3:30. The Warriors look to get back in the win column when they travel to Mardela to take on the Warriors this Friday at 4.
