Delray Beach, FL — Ever since losing the first game of the 2019 United Premier Soccer League season, Boca Raton Football Club has been on a row, winning five straight games which put them one point behind table leader PSL United.
On Friday, April 26, Boca Raton FC defeated Vultures FC at The Shipyard at Atlantic High School 1-0 to move into second place in the standings.
With the support of their home crowd, the boys in blue were able to begin the game strong. Boca Raton FC had some great early chances versus the sloppy Vultures backline but was unable to convert on anything thanks to great play by the Vultures goalkeeper.
Vultures FC soon found their groove and was able to go toe-to-toe with the home side, giving a strong performance.
The breakthrough came in the second half when forward Ryan Price was taken down in the penalty box and Boca Raton FC was awarded the penalty kick.
Price took the penalty cooly to the right side of the net, just out of the reach of the Vultures keeper to give Boca Raton FC the 1-0 lead and eventual win.
“It felt great to be able to give the team the win tonight,” said Price after the match. “We have been working extremely hard these last few games and our performances show it. We play for each other, and we play until that whistle blows, it’s never over.”
Boca Raton FC will now head back on the road to play Florida Wolves on May 4 before returning home on May 10 to face Vultures Black.
