First Half Summary

After a slow start for both teams, the first shot came from just outside the box. McNamara hit it right at Blake, who only briefly juggled the ball before securing the save.


Things got testy just moments later, as Kacper was taken down inside the box. Subaru Park yelled for a VAR review, but the ref deemed it to be a clean tackle.
