Indeed, that’s about all Schiera needed to do thanks to Alfaro’s magic.
“That was a nice lay from Alex and without him passing that, I wouldn’t have gotten that goal,” Schiera said. “But I wasn’t expecting it to take that long (to score). They’re a very good team, but we have also come out strong this year.”
The Reapers never led, but came about as close as a team can to doing so with 28 minutes and change remaining. Harold Flores fired a shot off goalkeeper Sead Sejdiu's hands before it caromed off the crossbar and safely back into Sedjiu’s hands.
“(Flores is) one of our true players who has come into the program after moving up from Mexico,” Dean said. “Almost everyone else that we’ve seen here the last four years has been playing together.”
