With 24 minutes left in the 2nd half, the third goal was scored by Seth Sparks. Seth came out of goal to take a Penalty kick. He placed the ball perfectly into the upper left corner for his first goal. With 15 minutes left and with several players playing in new positions, Peru was able to slip a goal past our goalkeeper. To answer, Zack Sparks collected the ball after a miss hit by the Peru goalie and scored to take the lead back to 3 goals.
