Holland 2, West Ottawa 2
Celebrating Holland's homecoming in soccer because the football season ended prematurely, the Dutch tied West Ottawa 2-2 on Saturday.
Holland's Fletcher VanHowe opened the scoring in the first three minutes of the match.
But West Ottawa went up 2-1 at halftime. Andy Solis' physical presence forced a turnover on a defender to cough up the ball to score the first goal for the Panthers. This is his second game in a row in which his press created a goal from a turnover. This goal energized the Panthers to lead a second goal before the end of the first half. The second goal came off a counter attack where Solis was able to handle defensive pressure to maintain possession. This gave Kamren Manikham time to make a run through the gap of the defenders to go one-on-one against the keeper.
In the second half, Holland regrouped and put pressure on the West Ottawa goal. In a scramble in front of the net, Paul Klomparens pounded the ball into the corner to tie up the match. Holland continued to get opportunities including a very close shot by Jacob VanHekken that hit both the crossbar and the side support.
"It was a big game against a big rival with a big crowd," said Holland coach Greg Ceithaml. "I thought we played very well, especially in the second half. We seem to be getting healthy and increasing our pace of play at the right time." Holland is now 5-9-3.
