FAIRFIELD — Tying the league leaders is not always a bad thing.

The Armijo High girls soccer team overcame a late deficit with a goal in the 71st minute to pull out a 1-1 tie with Monticello Empire League-leading Vintage at Brownlee Field, Thursday.

The Indians’ Lauryn Williams salvaged to the tie for Armijo (9-3-2, 4-2-2 MEL), scoring past Vintage’s goalie in the bottom-right corner on an assist from Monique Evans.

Armijo’ had a calm offense as they seemed to have control for most of the game, opposite the Crushers (12-0-4, 7-0-2 MEL), who liked to kick the ball around with what seemed to be no real structure, playing “kick ball,” as Armijo coach Brad Burzynski put it.

“I was very pleased that we were able to continue passing the ball,” Burzynski said. “It’s really hard for young teams to settle the ball down if the ball keeps traveling and getting kicked.”

Vintage liked to run its offense and it worked when the first goal of the game when Bailey Kiser scored the 58th minute on a break away, finding the net in the top-left corner from 20 yards away.

Down but not out, the Indians did what they do best and took their time – playing patiently by moving the ball around and not forcing any unnecessary shots.

“We tell our team that we are a possession team first, which will lead to an attack,” said Burzynski, saying that’s exactly how the home team tied the game.

The Indians mostly kept the Crushers’ Kiser in check, with as many as three Armijo defenders guarding her at times.

“(Kiser) was frustrated the whole night,” said Burzynski. “We had Allana Finley and Emily Tabada on her. We had someone covering the front and the back and told them to let someone else beat us.”

Burzynksi was not only excited about the defense on Kiser, but the way the team played overall.

“Tonight we had some tough defenders. They took on physical challenges and fouled when they needed to foul. They had to be physical tonight and not let Vintage push them around.”

The Indians are going to have to be physical two nights in a row as they host Napa in a make-up game, Friday.
