We are at West Morton High School for the boys soccer sectional final on a rainy night as the Benet Academy Redwings take on the Morton Mustangs. When these two matched up in the regular season, Morton won by a score of 2-1.
Six minutes in and Mustang Daniel Diaz has a free kick from a long distance that Evan Lucas has to tip over.
A couple of minutes later and Morton is still on the attack. Luis Gonzalez fires a shot on net, but Lucas punches it away.
Into the second half, TJ McVey weaves his way through the defense, but his shot is deflected just wide of the post.
