Sharks fight fiercely for win over United

The U15 Boys Division III Mustang Sharks coached by Ziad Tleimat beat Pleasanton Ballistic United 5-1 in their first league game.

The United were able to score in the first minutes of the game, but the Sharks quickly took control of the game, answering back with two consecutive winning shots by Spencer Kitchin - the first with an assist by Jordan Giusti and the second on free kick outside the 18-yard line. The third goal also came from a Sharks center half back, Mikhail "Tree" Torru, with an assist by Zuheir Tleimat to finish out the first half.

The Sharks continued to keep the momentum on offense during the second half with a breakaway by Jordon Giusti with an assist from Zuheir Tleimat and a goal by Jacob Clark with the help of Casey Sbrana's well placed corner kick to bring their goal count to 5. The Sharks outshot their opponents during the first half 10 to three and an incredible 20 to seven during the second half.

The Sharks benefited tremendously from some key defense by Stephen Armstrong, Derek Morefield and Matti Ruetman with goalkeeper Vikram Ravi making several remarkable saves.
