South Dundas United ties Prescott 1-1

PRESCOTT/IROQUOIS – South Dundas United’s U18 team tied Prescott 1-1 June 30 in the second of four friendly soccer matches between the two clubs.

United started strong with a consistent barrage of attacks on Prescott’s goal in the first half. A foul on South Dundas striker Kade VanBeilen inside the 18-yard box awarded United a penalty from the spot. VanBeilen shot left side after feigning right for the goal. United led the game 1-0.

A lapse in defence minutes later saw Prescott level the match 1-1 just before the half-time whistle.

In the second half, United’s forwards pressured Prescott’s defence again with seven of 12 shots on target. South Dundas was unable to get past Prescott’s goalkeeper, resulting in a 1-1 draw at full-time.

United’s U14 and U11 teams take on Prescott July 7 and July 8 respectively – the U18 team has the week off.

Scotland forward Taylor Elliott scores late in the first half against South Africa during the teams’ July 2 match.
