Beta shuts out Z 2-0 to remain undefeated, defend solid Turkey Bowl contender status

Beta Gamma maintained its perfect record on Saturday, beating the Epsilon Zeta Chi Tornadoes 2-0.

The game started out slow for both Beta and Z, and repeated offensive attempts by the teams were cleared by solid defenses.

However, a strong Beta offense found a hole in Z’s defense minutes into the second half when Jeremie Miller sent a cross to Peter Dickinson, who went one-on-one with Z’s goalkeeper before shooting it into the lower left corner of the net.

The Tornadoes regrouped and passed well up the field, but Mark Osorio’s shot was blocked by Beta’s Dillon Doran.

Beta scored again toward the end of the game, with Caleb Franco sending a beautiful shot from outside the goal box to give Beta the 2-0 win.

Beta defender Dillon Doran said that he’s been impressed with the way his team has been playing this season.

“Z gave us one of our toughest games of the year, so we were happy to pull out the win in the end,” he said.

Beta’s ability to seal up the backfield while generating solid goal shots makes the team a probable championship contender for the Turkey Bowl, which is just two weeks away.
