Jonah Waidelich wasted no time in getting the scoring started as he deflected a pass, which carried into the net. Findlay came back and scored later in the period for a 1-1 tie at the half.
The field was getting wet from the rain, but Kyle Ott put the Blue Streaks back on top for a 2-1 win with a goal midway through the second half.
The Blue Streaks traveled to Sylvania, Saturday, Sept. 29, to take on an aggressive Sylvania United team.

As the game got more physical, the Blue Streaks battled but could not get another goal for a 2-1 loss.

Logan Garrow got his first start of the season with Gerson Calderon also out with a concussion suffered in the Sylvania game.
Garrow made the most of his opportunity by getting the Streaks on the board first with his first goal of the season, and Rupp had some good saves for a 1-1 tie at halftime. The second half had a lot of possessions and movement being displayed. David Hissong got a breakaway to score and give the Blue Streaks the 2-1 win to move their record to 4-2.
