T-Birds battle back to down Norsemen
MIAMI, Okla. — Cloud County battled back from a 1-0 halftime deficit to defeat Northeastern Oklahoma A&M 2-1 on Tuesday.
Northeastern got out to a 1-0 lead when Lionel Fombe scored off a corner kick just one minute into the match.
The Golden Norsemen shut out the third-ranked Thunderbirds in the first 45 minutes.
“Teams already sit in on us, and to give that goal up early just solidified what they were trying to do against us,” Cloud County coach Steve Ralos said.
Cloud County, now 12-1, was able to tie the match just 20 seconds into the second half on a goal by Nelson Milsaint, off an assist from Reece Chaudry and Adam Halliday.
The T-Birds went on top to stay, 2-1, when Gerdson Lubin scored, off an assist from Chaudry.
Cloud County was able to hold off Northeastern the rest of the way.
“It was ugly, but it was a win,” Ralos said, “It keeps us winning; but these young kids are going to learn the hard way that, come the postseason, if they play like they have been playing, our season ends early.”
