Steel outlast Junior Reds in Bethlehem

The most complete game from Bethlehem Steel FC all year. Full stop. After a big win over Charleston and an even bigger draw against Charlotte, Brendan Burke didn’t even mention Toronto FC II’s standing in the Eastern Conference all week in preparation for a difficult match. Toronto didn’t make it easy, at all. Some absolutely stunning distribution from the backline of Matt Real, Hugh Roberts, Auston Trusty and Aaron Jones was the highlight for Steel in the first half. The chances were ruined by some questionable offside calls, but Bethlehem kept plugging away. Their best chance was right before stoppage time when Adam Najem fought off two defenders (a feat for him in and of itself) before hitting the far side post of Angelo Cavalluzzo’s goal.
