York, however, went into the second half with some purpose and a bit of luck.

Both teams had a handful of chances to score in the second half but it fans didn’t see the game-winning goal they hoped for. PFC’s goalkeeper ended the game with two saves off of four shots on target, while York 9’s Nathan Ingham saved three of five shots on target.
