The Warriors seeded #5 came out strong from the start and were dominating for the first 20 minutes. Wakefield scores first with a goal by Guillermo Garcia, assisted by Abenezer Shewago. Falls Church seeded #4 then retaliated by scoring just 10 minutes later. The rest of the game was back and forth with chances but no team would capitalize. The Warriors then lost a player due to a red card on a tactical foul that stopped a scoring chance with 20 minutes left in the game. Even though the Warriors were outnumbered, we managed to end the game at 1-1. After two 5 minute overtime periods we were still tied 1-1. Just 3 minutes into the third golden goal overtime the Warriors were awarded a free kick from about 20 yards away from the goal. Senior captain Abenezer Shewago stepped up and blasted a rocket of a shot passed the Falls Church goalkeeper which was the game winning goal and final play of the game. The win sends Wakefield into the semifinals where they will play at #1 seeded Lee high school at 6pm on Wednesday May 15th.
