Portage Aeros defeat Euro Selects
The Portage Aeros won their sixth consecutive game with a commanding 3-0 shutout against the Euro Selects.
The Aeros opened the scoring in early in the first half and that allowed them to settle into the game.
"We started out very strong and we were taking it to them," said coach Chad Green. "We got a nice early lead and that's when they (Selects) started pressing us."
Going into the second half, the Selects started controlling possession and creating many chances, but the Aeros goalkeeper came up with big saves several times.
As the second half went on, the game started to get chippy as multiple yellow cards were handed out.
A scrum late in the game led to two players from each team being ejected from the game.
