Park University 2 - 0 Southern Nazarene

Tuesday I was just driving around scouting out some photo locations and came across a soccer game. Being a sucker for a good game I pulled in and asked permission to shoot the game. Sadly the light was not great (overcast, cool, threatening to pour at any minute), but did the best I could.

It was a good game, SNU and Park seemed to be fairly evenly matched with SNU getting a little more possession but Park with the more dangerous opportunities of the first half. This was to be expected since they were both in the NAIA Top 25 poll. Park came into the game at 16th and SNU at 8th.

After half, with the wind at their back, Park applied more and more pressure. Their was a constantly building attack until the 64th minute when Raad Qumsieh (#21) crossed to Tazou Ali Tagba (#10)who put it home convincingly.

This is Tagba celebrating his goal...

Alain Matingou (#4) scored in the 84th minute to wrap the game up for Park. Here he transitioning the ball out of the back...

The rest of the photos can be seen at Park 2 - 0 Southern Nazarene gallery. Park's next game is against Central Christian this Saturday, October 25 at Julian Field at 3:00 p.m. It is senior day.
