Gardendale Varsity Soccer and #4 Ranked Vestavia Hills Battle to a 1-1 Tie

Vestavia Hills Soccer came to Driver Stadium on Thursday night, ranked #4 in the state and looking to chalk up another win against the Gardendale Varsity Soccer team.

It didn’t happen that way.

The Rockets scored on a Maurilio Barragan goal and took a slow offensive start into some momentum.

The Rockets Goalkeeper, Chris Bates, and his defenders, played a solid game on a night that most of Vestavia’s shots came from corner kicks.

The Rockets controlled the time of possession in the 2nd half, but couldn’t capitalize. Vestavia Hills made a push at the end with 2 corner kicks with less than 2 minutes remaining. The Rockets handled the push.
