By Manfred Tambe/DMV Elite FC

This game was an important one for both teams as they were tussling for postseason positions with Virginia Dream holding the third seed and DMV Elite FC claiming the fourth seed.

The game started with both teams feeling each other out until the 23rd minute when left winger Angel Chavez opened the scoring for the Virginia Dream.  Chavez went ahead and scored two more goals before halftime, and the third came from the penalty spot.  Chavez netted a hat trick in the first half alone.

Moments before the end of the first half, substitute Luke Gaffigan pulled one goal back for DMV Elite off a give-and-go with Isa Bramble.  Unfortunately for DMV Elite, Ronald Fuentes scored yet another goal for the Virginia Dream, sending both teams to the locker room with a 4-1 lead for the Dream.

The second half saw both teams make a few substitutions and tactical adjustments.  The second half went on for over 30 minutes with neither team giving ground to its opponent. 

But it was Virginia Dream that took advantage of the DMV Elite’s high press to counter and earn additional goals from Andy Hernandez and James Ashby.  The game ended with Virginia Dream emerging victorious with a final score of 6-1. 

DMV Elite FC are hosting the Alexandria Reds this Sunday at 7:00 pm for their final home game of the regular season.
