Tomenta FC Defeated by North Texas in Stoppage Time
STATESBORO, Ga. - South Georgia Tormenta FC was just seconds away from ending its 2020 season on a three-match unbeaten streak, but North Texas SC pulled ahead in the 96th minute to take all three points.
Tormenta FC had several chances early on in the match from both Nil Vinyals and Jad Arslan, but North Texas continued to push its attack throughout the first half.
In the third minute of first-half stoppage time, Nil Vinyals was taken down outside of the penalty box and earned a free kick in a dangerous position. He converted from the spot, impressively curling the ball over the keeper and into the net for his fourth goal of the season.
North Texas then responded with a second-half equalizer goal in the 47th minute. Despite notching more shots in the second half, Tormenta was unable to hold off the home side as they scored a second goal late in the match, seconds before the final whistle of 2020.
