Boca Raton Football Club was able to get their second win in a row as the club defeated Storm FC at Central Broward Regional Park 4-0 on Saturday night.
Boca Raton’s offense got off to a slow start as they played through the rain and worked on their rhythm.
The ball was played a lot in Boca Raton’s territory as the Storm did create pressure for the defense as they played strong, desperately looking for a goal.
However, the Boca Raton FC backline was able to contain the threats and in the 20th minute, Boca Raton found the breakthrough as Kyle Giscombe made a pass from the left side of the field to a streaking Matheus Ayrolla, who was able to finish it and score his first of the night.
After the half, Boca Raton came into the game with more firepower and looked to capitalize early and it didn’t take long.
In the 46th minute, Giovanni Amoroso makes a beautiful volley to Ayrolla, who hit it with force into the upper 90 with no chance for the Storm FC goalkeeper to grab it.
Boca Raton’s mentality on the field was very offensive, and it showed as they were able to keep the ball deep in Storm’s zone. At the 61st minute, Ayrolla added his third of the night as the forward was blasted through the defenders to be just at the right place as Noah Graziano swung the ball into a wide open Ayrolla.
With a strong pressure on the backline, Boca Raton was able to defend well versus a Storm team that has yet to find their first goal of the NPSL season.
“We played a good game tonight,” said Boca Raton FC head coach Jim Rooney. “We had good chances, and the team was moving the ball well despite the weather conditions not being the best.”
Boca Raton continued to put the foot on the gas, and in the 81st minute, Ayrolla added his fourth of the night, when after a scuffle in the box, he was able to cooly grab the ball, dribble past a defender and put it away from the keeper.
“My teammates kept finding me tonight,” said Ayrolla after the match. “We played our game and did exactly what coach Rooney asked of us, the game was a great team effort, I thought it was an awesome win. It was exciting to not allow any goals and have our first shutout of the season.”
With his four goals, Ayrolla now holds the record with most goals in a game by a Boca Raton FC player. He also leads the Sunshine Conference in goals.
