September 20, 2013Bishop Brossart High School
The State Ranked 21st Mustangs had an encore performance tonight after taking down #11 NCC two days earlier. The Mustangs win 4-3 on a well played game by both teams. The chants of overrated were heard from the crowd as the final seconds ticked off the clock. The Man of the Match was Jacob Jennings. Jacob had a hat trick and the game winning goal with under a minute to play.
The Rebels struck first in the 2nd minute of the game. The Mustangs came right back for the equalizer when Eli Nienaber sent a nice ball to Jacob Jennings that Jacob buried into the net.
The Rebels went ahead 2-1 on a ball that got past the keeper in the 11th minute. The Mustangs stormed right back in the 16th frame when Nick Dierig sent a ball to Jacob Jennings and Jacob put the ball into the net for the 2-2 tie.
In the 29th minute Dylan Geiman gave the Mustangs their first lead in the game. Dylan sent a ball over the keeper's head and into the net for the 3-2 lead. The Mustangs went to the half up 1 goal.
The Rebels were not finished as they got the equalizer in the 49th minute of the game off a corner kick. The game looked like it would end in a tie as time was running down. The Mustangs made one last final push and Senior, Jacob Jennings found the net as he shot it past the outstretched arms of the keeper for the game winner.
The defensive did play well and held the Rebels when it counted. Both Andrew Erickson and Jeff Paulin played well for the Mustangs they both made some great saves. The Mustangs were playing against Evan O’Hara, one of the top players in Northern Kentucky. Last year as a Junior, O'hara was one of the top 5 scorers in Northern Kentucky and is one of the tops this year as well.
