Coming off a strong performance against DI opponent Cosumnes Oaks of Sacramento the Falcons looked to continue their momentum. The Falcons started out of the gate with a real sense of urgency, creating scoring chances early in the match. The Falcons team chemistry was on full display with their passing completion and ball movement.
In the 36′ minute of the first half, Douja Vang of Fairfield was able to slip a beautiful pass through Benicia’s defenders to an on-running Rogelio Guzman who cut past Benicia’s goalie and slotted the ball in the back on the net.
The Second half started and Benicia came out on the attack. Benicia was able to create a couple scoring chances but the Falcons defense was able to keep things under control. The final score would end Fairfield 1 – 0 Benicia.
Strong overall performance by goalkeeper Sanskar Malhotra for keeping the clean sheet, and a strong defensive appearance by Jaime Ramirez(Captain), David Duran, James Acuetsa(Captain), Bryan Cervantes, and Eduardo Beas.
