Second Half Rally Falls Short for Lindbergh Soccer

The Eagles tried to overcome an 0-3 deficit but could not pull off the comeback against Tyee.

Lindbergh never saw the lead as the Eagles fell at home to the Tyee Totems 5-2. Lindbergh (1-5-2 Overall, 1-3-1 Seamount) is still looking for their second league win while the Totems (3-3 Overall, 2-2 Seamount) are 2-1 against the Renton schools this season.

Tyee’s Sadir Loukman scored the team’s 3 goals in the first 27 minutes to put the Totems up 3-0. Lindbergh tried to defend the goal area as Tyee took advantage of scoring opportunities from the corner kicks.

“The boys came in overconfident and not ready to play,” said Lindbergh Head Coach Kirk Tavener.

In the second half Eagles’ Erick Ortuno-Perez made the first goal after receiving a pass from Michael O’Hanlon in the 42nd minute. Another goal came in the 52nd minute from Troy Jaramillo from a Nicholas Woltkamp pass. Tavener said the team came into the second half with a new attitude.

“We were already at 3-2,” said Tavener. “So it was a one-point game at that point.”

The Eagles tried to catch-up until the 64th minute when Tyee managed to draw a penalty from a Lindbergh player, setting up the direct free kick where Totems’ Eduardo Pelayo scored the goal. Tyee increased their lead and never looked back as Freddi Altamirano scored the final goal in the game’s final minute.

Lindbergh had some scoring opportunities to get back into the game. In the 52nd minute, O’Hanlon tried to get the ball to Ortuno-Perez, but was unable to connect. Miguel Arroyo-Selis corner-kicked the ball in the goal area in the 66th minute before O’Hanlon and Tyee’s Goalkeeper Carlos Reyes collided head-to-head. O’Hanlon tried to score twice with under 9 minutes remaining.

“This was a good learning experience,” said Tavener. “They need to come ready to play.”
