Temecula, CA. – Playing its first match of the Riverside County Cup here Saturday night, The Quails used a goal with 112 seconds left in regular time by senior midfielder Joey Ciochetto to post a 2-1 win over Toros Neza USA at Chaparral High School Stadium.
With the win, The Quails start the cup with 3 points and will now travel to Perris, CA to face City Legends.
Emilio Bunnell’s headed goal, which was his first in the Riverside County Cup, came off a corner and nestled just under the crossbar in the 38th minute. Toros Neza USA scored a goal of their own late in the second half to tie up the match before Joey’s late winner.
All three of the goals in Saturday’s match came from corners showing the importance of set plays in the modern game. We hope everyone who attended the match enjoyed and we look forward to seeing you all at our next home match vs City Legends slated for early November.
