Voltage stingy defense allows them to battle to ties against Albany and Ottawa on the road before falling last night at Cape Cod in the 94th minute on a hotly contested penalty kick.
Both teams scored on PK's during regulation and the game appeared to be headed to a tie when
in the 94th minute a penalty kick was awarded when a Voltage player collided with a Cape Cod player inside the box.
A last second penalty kick proved to be the difference.
Cape Cod 2, Volts 1
I was there at Barnstable High. It was a clear penalty. The Crusaders # 9 did the Voltage defender for pace down the left and was bundled over in the box.
The Voltage team protested loudly against the penalty and one guy picked up the ball and booted it out of the ground for which he was rightly red carded by the ref. It was some minutes before the penalty was actually taken.
Too bad - it was an unsavoury end to what was a pretty good match.
