In the last minute of the game, the Simon Sanchez Sharks notched in a goal to tie the game at 2-all avoiding a loss to the Academy Cougars in the last week of the regular season. Evident in the score, teams saw even matchups on defense and offense, making it a struggle for either team to hold on to possession of the ball.

The second half saw Gemilie Ilao take the ball past the Sharks defense and shooting the ball into the upper left corner of the goal for her second score of the game to put her Cougars up 2-1. The Sharks were unable to capitalize on their many attempts at the goal, but finally in the eightieth minute, Daneesha Blas blasted a shot into the back of the net in a scuffle right in front of the goal. With what little time they had left, both teams tried to get in a goal for the win however time expired before they could do so.

In the first half, Sharks Maria Iriarte put the Sharks up 1-0 early in the fourth minute. Later in the 12th, Ilao shot in a grounder past the Sharks keeper to tie up the game.

The Sharks add a third tie to their record, 4-1-3, while the Cougars add a fourth tie, 4-1-4.

In another game, the JFK Islanders and St. John’s Knights tied as well 4-4.
