Equalizer Disallowed, Mats Season Ends in Region I Final
|Arizona Western College||0|
PRESCOTT, Ariz---Down 1-0 in the 70th minute, an apparent match-tying goal was disallowed costing the Arizona Western Matadors the Region I Final, and ending the season, in a 1-0 loss to the Yavapai RoughRiders.
The Matadors had a handful of chances but a quick counter-attack in the 55th minute was crossed in front of the net and cashed in by the RoughRiders to give Yavapai the 1-0 lead.
Arizona Western upped the attack and appeared to have the equalizer when Burak Cuban bounced in a shot that deflected away from the keeper. Michael Appiah banged it off the keeper and another Yavapai defender and the ball trickled into the goal, appearing to tie the game, but the goal was waived off by the line judge.
The Matadors continued to pressure in attempt to find another tying goal but fouls mounted and another Yavapai counter resulted in a red card leaving AWC down to 10 players on the pitch.
The score would conclude 1-0, ending the Matadors season in Prescott.
