Entz pair of goals leads FC Wichita over FC dallas u-23
FC Wichita dominated the FC Dallas U-23’s in a 2-0 win on a beautiful Saturday at the Stryker Soccer Complex. Wichita remains in fourth place on goal differential with FC Dallas U-23.
The game got off to an exciting start as Wichita controlled the pace and game, producing multiple chances in the first ten minutes. With the chances produced and Wichita showing their dominance at full strength, it was only a matter of time before a ball would find the back of the net.
In her second game playing for Wichita, Brooklyn Entz would make no mistake and off a beautiful ball from the midfield; she would find her first brace to make it 1-0 in the 31st minute.
“Brooklyn [Entz] is very intelligent,” Assistant coach Aaron Avila said. “Simple directions and putting her in 1-v- 1 situations, that’s what fits her personality. I’m glad it really worked out for us today.”
It would not take long for Entz to find another brace for Wichita and it would come in the 37th minute. Entz would get another 1v1 with a defender and this time cut back to take a curling shot back post, which ricocheted off the post to hit an FC Dallas defender and bounce in.
“I got lucky and got the own goal,” Entz said.
With a commanding 2-0 lead in under 40 minutes, Wichita continued to pour on the pressure and didn’t relent until the whistle for halftime sounded.
Coming out of halftime Wichita was renewed and threatened multiple times, but could not find the back of the net for the remainder of the game.
“It’s great to see us come out and get this result after losing 4-0 last week in Dallas. “ Avila said.
Wichita has another game tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. against FC Tulsa Spirit at Stryker Soccer Complex. Tulsa currently sits in the last place with one point and a negative-41 goal differential.
“We’re going to have players suited tomorrow who didn’t play today, and they’re going to be hungry to get on the pitch and get a goal and a result.” Coach Avila said.
