May 7 Match Notes

NPFC (Northern Peninsula FC) opened their 2023 CPL Pacific Div. 2 campaign on the road vs. TCFC (Thurston County FC) with a 2-2 Draw. NPFC’s Edgar Aceves scored in the 25′ (unassisted). Second half TCFB converted a free-kick opportunity from the right side just outside the penalty box. 1-1 at that point. NPFC stymied the TCFC counterattack and kept pushing second half for the go-ahead goal. In the 77′ NPFC defender Sean Botkin got tripped on the left side of the box as he cut in to shoot and was awarded a penalty kick. Sean took his own PK, scoring right down the middle and making it 2-1 with about 10 minutes to go.

TCC was awarded another free kick in the 85′, nicely placing the direct free kick into the upper corner of the NPFC against a backup keeper, who has one step too slow to react as the game tieing goal went over his head. The match ended 2-2. Below are game stats:
