Edged in Close Battle by Falcons 4-3
At the start of the second half, the Bulls came out how they started the contest on the attack. In the 47th minute, Mike Unwin set up sophomore Lucas Bassan with a well-executed pass. As Bassan barreled towards the net, he sent a blast from 20 yards out beating the Falcons’ goalkeeper Dylan Schoettley to tie the contest at 1-1.
Facing a 3-2 deficit, the Bulls fought right back to tie the contest once again. In the 79th minute, Alex Marrello scored his first goal of the season to tie the game at 3-3. Marrello ripped a shot from 40 yards out that took an odd bounce to beat Schoettely.
