Reagan may have given away the number one ranking in the San Antonio Soccer News boys’ varsity ranking after they were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw with Churchill at Blossom on Tuesday night, in an entertaining match.
The Rattlers started the match well as they went on the attack from the opening whistle and in the eighth minute they had their goal. It came from a ball from Emiliano Cuadra who was able to set up Shane Malone who made no mistake and put Reagan 1-0 up.
That forced Churchill to respond and they did, going for the match to try and find a goal to pull themselves back in to the match. It took just three minutes for Churchill to find the goal, which was well worked, surprising the Rattlers.
That result would stand through to half-time and the second half started just as tight, with the two sides working hard to keep possession. Neither team was very successful at that as the two teams gave away possession too much, breaking up flow and making it difficult for either side to get chances.
Churchill stunned the number one team in San Antonio with 13 minutes to play after the Rattlers gave away a corner. That allowed Churchill to send in a perfect delivery that was headed home comfortably to give the Chargers the lead.
That forced Reagan to respond and three minutes later a corner of their own allowed them that opportunity. Justin Sukow was able to send the ball in, which perfectly found Chaise Thiel who headed home the goal to level the scores.
While the Rattlers pushed in the final ten minutes of the match as they looked to get the winning goal, but they just could not find it. The draw helps out Churchill, who want to try and push in to the San Antonio Soccer News rankings.
