Forbush planted three goals in the Starmount goal within the first 12 minutes of the game. "That wasn't...expected," said Forbush coach Seth Davis.
The Falcons found their first goal off the toe of Patrik Babinec, with an assist by Jordan St. John only eight minutes into the game. "Getting an early goal was one of our goals as a team," said Davis.
The Rams couldn't keep the Falcons out of their end of the field for long. Just a short two and a half minutes later, Jordan St. John connected with Chandler Carter on an assist, and St. John blistered a shot to the back of the Starmount goal. "Another one of our team goals was to try to get ahead and control the game," said Davis.
The Falcons would score one more goal before the half.
Carter found Snow with an open patch of grass, and the rest was history as Snow slipped a shot by Starmount goalkeeper Oscar Hernandez.
Shortly thereafter, the Rams would score their lone goal of the game. Nate Benfield hooked up with Chandler Chappell on an assist and Benfield snuck a shot passed Falcon goalkeeper Ender Castillo.
"Forbush came out quick and established themselves," said Starmount coach Dale Draughn.
“We have to play throughout. I think we came in too pumped up and couldn’t get settled down until after the third goal. Then, we came back and scored our lone goal,” Draughn said.
Starmount, although played will, they couldn’t capitalize on shots attempted.
The Falcons outshot the Rams 14-5. The Falcons split evenly, seven shots in both halves, while the Rams only managed two in the first and three in the second half.
“It’s our first conference game, it puts us with our backs against the wall,” Draughn said.
With the win, Forbush improves their undefeated season to four wins and a tie, while Starmount falls to 3-1 record.
“With just three other 2A teams, you kind of have to win those to establish yourself.,” Draughn said.
Although the Rams dropped their first loss, the rest of the season looks promising.
“I think we out-played them first half, although the score didn’t show it,” Draughn said.
