Hammerheads extend unbeaten streak with tie against Chicago

Wilmington, NC - Wilmington Hammerheads FC extends their unbeaten streak following Saturday's 2-2 draw against the Chicago Fire Reserves at Legion Stadium. 

 

Wilmington put forth pressure on Chicago at the beginning of the match as forward Jordan Hamilton had the first shot of the night with a ground ball across the front of the goal. The Hammerheads followed with a few more attempts, but it was Chicago's Dilly Duka that put the first point on the board in the 27th minute.

 

Hammerheads forward Sammy Ochoa was offered an opportunity on goal with a penalty kick after teammate Mickael Oliveira was taken down in the box, but was denied by a diving save by goalkeeper Kyle Reynish leaving the Hammerheads scoreless at the half.

 

Forward Jordan Hamilton scored the Hammerheads first goal of the night and his fourth goal of the season in the 50th minute off a cross by Ochoa, matching Ochoa for team leader in goals. Soon after, the Hammerheads dropped again to a deficit of one as Chicago's Juan Luis Anangono put the ball into the back of the net in the 58th minute. 

 

It was Hammerheads midfielder Will Heaney that equalized the score in stoppage time with a hard shot into the back of the net and increasing Wilmington's unbeaten streak to eight consecutive matches during the current regular season. 

 

The Wilmington Hammerheads are scheduled to play their next match at Legion Stadium on Saturday, June 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET for the second match of their three-game series against the Richmond Kickers this regular season. The Hammerheads will host the Kickers again on Friday, August 1 for their final match of the series.
