Both teams scored goals in the opening two minutes of the game, and the contest was tied at 3-3 going into the closing minutes.

The Lakers scored the game-winner when defender Nic Ellingboe dribbled the length of the field and buried a shot in the back of the net.

Kaleb Winter scored twice for the Lakers, and Adam Clauss buried a penalty kick.

“It was a crazy game, just all over the place,” said Lakers’ coach Jeremy Thelen, whose team is now 2-0 on the season.

Reeths-Puffer scored in the opening minute of play, then Clauss scored on a penalty kick after teammate K.J. Sanchez was tripped in the penalty box.

The Lakers tied it at 2-2 when Winter, who had just returned from a family vacation in California, scored on a rebound.

Winter then scored on a breakaway, assisted by Ellingboe, early in the second half for a 3-2 lead.
The Rockets tied the game on a penalty kick.

Shots were 19-all.

Tri-cities realist

I'm curious about the intent of this line, "The Lakers tied it at 2-2 when Winter, who had just returned from a family vacation in California, scored on a rebound." What does returning from a family vacation have to do with the reporting of a soccer match? Why weren't we informed that one of the scorers just returned from a days work at his summer job, or filling out a college application? This is journalism? Ha!
