Storm returns to the winner circle

Petaluma, California-
With a good portion of the Storm roster missing due to injuries, and personal obligations, the team traveled North to Sonoma County to play the Sonoma County Sol, from the North Western Conference. The team knew with the shortage of players, and the need for three points that they had to attack and attack fast.
That is what they did in a 3-1 win over the Sol with goals from Stephen Martines, Tyler Coombes and Alex Harlley.
National Premier Soccer Leagues
 
It was only 9 minutes in to the game and the Storm already had three shots on target, when Alex Harlley brought the ball down the right side and battled with a number of Sol defenders. Harlley slipped a pass down the goal line and found the foot of Captain Stephen Martines who pushed it over the line for the early lead in the first half. The half continued to be the Storms game as they controlled the ball 70 % of the time and had a number of opportunities but only the one found the back of the net. The Sol managed four shots and five saves in that first half.
 
The second half saw a completely different Sonoma Sol as they came out reorganized and started to pick up the pace and play a much more controlled game. Possession of the b all changed and the Sol seemed to be the ones in control of the game.
Quickly, Sol's Octavio Estupinan fouled the Storm in an effort to regain the ball. The foul gave Estupinan his second yellow card of the game and he was ejected. The Sol were still controlling the ball but were not able to get any real shots off until the 61st min of play. The Sol picked up a lose ball in the center of the field and managed to get a shot on target and make it count as they got it past Storms keeper Edgar Torres. Torres picked up in the second half for starting keeper Steven Rodrigious. With the score tied at one, it was a new game but the Sol did not show it as they still had most of the possession. But the Storm still out shot the Sol in the second half 9 to 2, real credit to the Storm defenders.
The score stayed tied until the 83rd minute of play when it was Tyler Coombes who received a pass from Alex Harrley and made a run through the mid field and slapped a shot that gave the Storm the go ahead and winning goal.
That was Coombes 8th goal in only six games and leads the Storm in points so far this season.
Then in the 85th minute, just two minutes later after assisting on two goals, Harlley got a hold of a pass from defender Gregory Quintaro and took it directly at the keeper and after getting around two defenders, Harlley finally got one of his own and added the third and final goal of the game. Harlley, with two assists and a goal earned the player of the match award.
 
Next, the Storm returns home on the 19th at Canyon High School where they will welcome Real San Jose, also out of the North West Conference. It will be a 6pm game and gates will open at five. Come out and see high scoring Coombes, Martines , and Harlley as they continue their climb back to the top of the NPSL South West Conference.

Then just one minute later flash’s Brandon Zuniga put a second goal in before the half. The second half the Storm came out strong but nothing seem to go as planned. The Flash knew the record of the Storm and its ability to score, so they had a very well laid out plan to stop the aggressive scoring of the Storm and that plan worked.
