Boca Raton’s last NPSL match:
May 17, 2017 in Stuart – Beaches FC 0-2 Boca Raton FC
A largely even first half ended 0-0 but both sides had chances to break the deadlock. A decisive moment occurred minutes before halftime when Beaches FC’s Colby Burnette was sent off for a second yellow card, reducing his side to ten men for the duration of the game.
Despite the man disadvantage, Beaches FC started the second half strong, but then Boca Raton captain Bruno Militz beat the backline on a counter attack which was scored against the run of play. The fifty third minute goal allowed Boca Raton to play with more freedom for the remainder of the game. Beaches FC had a few chances to equalize but Lorenzo Cava put the match away with an 87th minute goal to seal all three points for Boca Raton.
