@lucasmauro strikes again, literally 😁 with focused effort throughout the game, and with a beautiful goal, he is once more our Man of the Match.
Again! Man of the match @lucasmauro was focused from the first minute to the last. He kept encouraging his teammates to switch the play quickly to create more chances to score.
Even after 3 goals he pushed as if we needed another goal for the win. You wouldn’t know it by watching him that it was the final minutes of the game. He kept pushing, passing, and asking for the ball as if it was the very beginning.
He also scored a very nice goal by dribbling Brevard’s defender and placing the ball on the opposite side of their goalkeeper.
Lucas Mauro created several dangerous opportunities offensively and score both of our goals. With strong in 1v1 situations and constantly looking to help defend, he is Man of the Match for our first playoff game.
