While the rest of the match’s first half was relatively uneventful, with neither side scoring any points, the post-halftime segment of the game really amped things up.

As both teams battled for supremacy, City’s Ercan Kara received a penalty goal kick at 68′, evening the scores at 2-2.

The match eventually went into extra time, though City’s defender Kyle Smith cleaned up with an assist from Torres, bringing the match to a close at 90+1′.

City’s next game is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 8 p.m.
