SHREVEPORT, La. - Striker Remi Emeriau's first-half goal was enough as Mississippi Brilla FC defeated Blue Goose SC 1-0 in Shreveport on Saturday night. The victory keeps Brilla unbeaten in the Mid South Division with a 4-0-1 record.
The goal came in the 11th minute of action. Midfielder Ocho Fasteen launched the attack with a diagonal pass into Jamie DiLuzio's feet on the right side. DiLuzio slipped in a pass into Marco Astorga's path. Astorga's powerful shot careened off the post, but Emeriau was well-positioned to put the ball into the empty net.
Goalkeeper Chris Morrish got his second shutout of the season. He didn't have to make many saves, but the ones he did make were important. His biggest came in the 78th minute, when he palmed a powerful Blue Goose shot onto the post, keeping the score 1-0.
Mississippi Brilla FC will be back in action on Thursday night against Texas United. Kickoff from Clinton High School is set for 7:00 p.m.
This will kick off a three-game homestand for Brilla. Thursday's game will be followed by a game on Saturday against the same Texas United team, before the homestand finishes with a game on Wednesday, June 22 versus LA Parish AC.
