HRA Completes Comeback Against Atlantic Shores

Despite conceding two first-half goals, HRA kept Atlantic Shores Christian on its heels for a good portion of the game. By the final whistle, the Navigators recorded 19 shots on goal to Atlantic Shores’ seven.

Sam Wash scored HRA’s lone goal in the first half before Patrick Phillips and Jalen Johnson got on the board in the second half. Johnson later added the game-winning goal on his second of the night.
