SJW 1-3 = 4
TCU 0-2 = 2

The St. James-Windom Wings boys soccer team used a strong second half Saturday morning, pulling away for a 4-2 victory over Tri-City United at St. James.

The Wings got on the scoreboard early in the contest when Fredy Garcia won a scramble for a loose ball in front of the net and tapped in a shot for a goal.

The Wings expanded their lead early in the second half on goals from Carlos Perez and Manuel Tiniguar, but TCU was able to close the gap in the second half with a pair of goals, cutting the SJW lead to 3-2.

But in the closing minutes of the match, Garcia netted his second goal of the game, lifting the Wings to victory.

Ambrocio finished with 13 saves in the match. TCU outshot the Wings 15-13.
