In the final match of the season Stargate lost to Jefferson Academy. Jefferson took the lead when a deflected pass caused the ball to spin away from two Stargate defenders failing to an open JA player for an easy finish. The lift from the first goal gave Jefferson some momentum and they doubled the lead shortly after the restart. The Eagle’s dug in and took the fight back to Jefferson. The Eagle’s created chances including a fierce strike from outside the box by Jonas Cecil that beat the goalkeeper but caught the crossbar. The strike fueled the charge as Stargate pressed hard for a goal but couldn’t find the net before half. Stargate flew into the second half ramping up pressure and pulled a goal back with a brilliant breakaway finish by Jonas Skema. Moments later Jonas Cecil stepped up to a free kick just outside the box. The strike cleared the wall and beat the keeper but again the post came to Jefferson’s rescue. The Eagle’s continued to mount pressure holding JA deep in their own half but were unable to find an equalizer as time ran out.
