Wabash Boys Soccer traveled to Eastbrook Wednesday for the season opener.
The hot night saw the teams in a scoreless battle through the first half. Spencer Stout had some critical defensive stops to keep the game even. Wabash rallied late in the first on some great work from Jacob France and Troy Guenin -Hodson who were combining effective passes all night.
Eastbrook broke the deadlock midway through the second half when a long shot lofted over Greyson DeBoard to find the back of the net. But Wabash came out swinging and continued to fight. Alvaro Matinez headed a sure Eastbrook goal off the line denying the Panthers a 2 goal lead. As Wabash pressed, Eastbrook became pinned in their own half as the Apaches began to pile on the pressure. With about 12 minutes to go, Andrew Dinkins gathered the ball deep in the left corner and sent a low cross through the box where Will Galley was waiting to fire it through traffic for the equalizer. Wabash continued to press for the remainder of the game but was unable to find the go-ahead goal.
Wabash is now 0-0-1 and the Apaches will face Mississinewa on Thursday, August 19 in Gas City.
