In a game that featured fireworks in the background, an exploding light, and three sending offs, Dallas City FC defeated Corinthians FC SA 2-0 in a wild game that featured a bit of everything for everybody in the league’s Game of the Week.
The first half contained very little action with both teams going back and forth looking for a weakness as both teams did nothing noteworthy in the first half. Both teams struggled to get much going as they combined for two shots on target with both them being easy saves for the goalkeeper. Most attacks from each team resulted in turnovers with no real threats of scoring.
The second half is where all the fireworks happened. The game got off to a fast start when both teams traded shots off the bar in the 54th and 55th minutes. Not long after that, ejections would start happening. The first of the two came in the 65th minute when a Corinthians FC SA coach was ejected for arguing. The ejections would continue in the 78th minute when Corinthians FC SA player Zach Trau was shown a straight red in the game. The red cards would continue just five minutes later when Taylor Lubianski was shown a red card, sending Corinthians FC SA down two players.
With San Antonio down two men, Dallas City would take advantage in extra time with a goal from Joshua Hernandez in stoppage time. Corinthians FC SA had a few chances to tie the game in stoppage time, but Dallas City FC were awarded a penalty kick that Alex Molano was able to send into the left corner that sealed the game for Dallas City FC.
With the win Dallas City improves to 3-6-2 on the season while Corinthians FC SA drop to 10-3-1. Dallas City has a quick turnaround, playing the Houston Regals SCA on July 5 before ending the season with the Trinity River Classic against the Fort Worth Vaqueros. This was the final regular season game for Corinthians FC SA.
