Werner Fricker Cup: Kendall Wanderers compete well in USASA Region I quarterfinals
Safira defeated Kendall Wanders 3-0 in the USASA Fricker Cup State Finals today at East Boston Stadium.
The game went scoreless for the first half. Safira struck at the 61st minute mark with a goal from Hugo Bomfin. Kendall fought back and had several opportunities in the Safira end. But in the 89th minute, Safira's midfield intersepted a pass and served Junior Alencar breaking down the right sideline going 1v1 with Kendall defender. Junior's outstanding footwork got him jut enough separation to get a shot past the defender and he placed it in the upper left corner. Shortly thereafter, Junior assisted to Hugo the 3rd goal of the game in stoppage time.
It was a well played game by both clubs and the heated action kept the fans and spectators warm at a windy and cool afternoon at the Stadium.
This victory also gave Safira it's 2nd Cup of the season. We wish them the best of luck in the Amateur and Fricker Cup Regional games later this month.
