Late Goal Earns Draw For Kings Warriors

Posted:
BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (WVVA) -- For 91 minutes, Cincinnati Dutch Lions' goalkeeper Eric Osswald frustrated the Southern West Virginia Kings Warriors attack with several special and point-blank saves. In the 92 minute, Itode Fubara came up with something even Osswald couldn't stop. 

Fubara intercepted a pass near midfield, dribbled about 15 yards before unleashing a low blast that slammed off the far right post and into the net. The goal tied the game at 1-1 and earned the Kings Warriors a come-from-behind point against the brand new Premier Development League Club. 

"What a cracking goal from Fubi," head coach Scott Reitnoir said after the game. "The game can be a cruel game, that's why we love it and are disciplined by it. We're very proud of the boys for fighting to the very end."

The Kings Warriors went behind early, after Jeff McClure scored in the 12th minute. 

With the draw, the team moves to 1-0-1, with four total points. They travel to Charleston next week to take on their arch-rival, the West Virginia Chaos.
