Lanier had to settle for a 1-1 against Stony Point on Friday night. The Vikings took a lead into half time thanks to a venomous low drive from Brian Garcia after a neat set up by Luis Lopez. The analytics team at Hudl would show that the Vikings were on top for most of the match producing 20 shots and maintaining 57% possession with Mario Gomez, Melvin Andrade, and Shelove all spurning chances to double Lanier’s slender advantage. But the away side were forced to settle for shared spoils as a late throw in found its way to a Tiger foot and an impressive volley was smashed into the top corner from 20 yards.
