The Manson Trojans fought hard against the Brewster Bears on Tuesday night at the Manson Athletic Complex (MAC) but fell to the league leaders 4-1. Brewster began the game with complete domination of the midfield with frequent forays into the Manson box. Sophomore goalkeeper Arturo Valdovinos was called into action early with a couple of fine saves. The continued pressure, however, was too much for the Trojans to handle and the Bears took the lead 15 minutes into the first half. Brewster continued to pressure Manson and dominate possession and were rewarded with two more well-worked goals before halftime. Manson began to play themselves back into the game in the second half but it was the Bears who struck again. This time off of a corner kick that the Manson defense allowed to slip through the box where the Brewster defender was waiting to slam the ball home. Down 4-0 however, Manson never gave up and were rewarded for their hard work and discipline with a goal by junior Jose Vasquez who was played through by Eberardo Aguilar and calmly finished past the Bear’s goalkeeper. In the end Manson loses its second league match, once again to Brewster, but maintains its position in second place. The next game is home to Liberty Bell at the MAC on Thursday at 4:30.
