The Richard Montgomery Rockets always provide a tough, physical test, and this year’s matchup was no exception. Wootton’s Greg Garcia opened the scoring with a gorgeous volley from 25 yards into the upper corner. Keeper Matthew Kopsidas made the play of the day when he made a spectacular diving stop on an RM penalty kick with just minutes remaining in the half, providing a huge emotional lift to the Patriots.
Francis Meyer delivered a pinpoint serve across the box to a crashing Garcia, who volleyed the ball one-time into the side netting, providing a sorely-needed insurance goal. Special credit in this game goes to the exceptional work of Mo Ahmed, who stepped into the starting lineup and delivered a huge defensive performance! Final score was 2-0, with Wootton moving to 4-0-1 on the season!
