SLIDESHOW: Tyee boy’s soccer beats Evergreen for the second time this season 4-1
By Kyle Howard
The Tyee Totems took on the Evergreen Wolverines on April 17th for a rematch between the two teams for their second matchup this season. Evergreen came out seeking their revenge after they lost to Tyee 5-1 on March 20th. Evergreen only had 11 available players for this game, meaning they had no substitutes available.
This game would prove to be nearly identical to their first matchup; Evergreen scored first and then from then on it was all Tyee as they scored four unanswered goals beating the Wolverines once again, this time with the score 4-1.

Evergreen scored 17 minutes into the game with a nice shot from Josue Grados 15 yards out, but that would prove to be it for the game. Tyee got things together at the end of the half when Jose Aguniga tied the game at one with just over three minutes left.
Tyee came out strong in the second half and scored quickly in just three and half minutes on a corner kick taken by Freddi Altamirano crossing the field into the box when Kevin Medina nicely headed the ball into the back of the net for the goal to take the lead 2-1. Just five minutes later Felipe Cervantes received a nice pass and dribbled the ball up field between two defenders and was able to score at around 10 yards out. The Totems final goal came on a free kick 25 yards out, with four defenders and the goal keeper in the way Eduardo Pelayo looped the ball past all the defenders to score their fourth and final goal.
Evergreen did a good job playing with only 11 players; the score could have been a lot worse considering Tyee had several more opportunities to score as they outshot Evergreen 16-7. Wolverine goal keeper Jonathan Delgado made several great saves and defender Miguel Serrano played good defense and saved a few goals himself.
