The Warriors fell in a 1-0 hole in the final minute of the first half after giving up an own goal, but rallied after the intermission to snatch the victory.
The equalizer came in the 77th minute, the result of Tanner Wolf’s second goal of the season. Asher Booth delivered a ball from the left side to the center of the field where Wolf was charging for the goal. Wolf let the ball bounce once, then produced a strike that found the back of the net.
The game winner came as the result of a penalty kick in the 83rd minute. Wilton Quintero was taken down inside the box and drew a foul against the Royals. For the fifth time this season, Quintero took the PK and for the fifth time this season, scored.
