In a game that could only be described as a physical duel between the top two teams in the league, the San Francisco Deltas earned a hard fought scoreless draw against the Jacksonville Armada FC on Saturday night in Jacksonville.
From the onset of the match it appeared as if the Armada were determined to dish out hard tackles and fouls to control the match. The Deltas however won the majority of the duels and 92.9-percent of their tackles.
San Francisco controlled the midfield and kept high pressure on Jacksonville’s back line. The Armada were forced to attempt long balls over the top to score.
The Deltas outshot Jacksonville 8-5 but never seriously threatened to put a goal into the net. The Armada had two dangerous chances late that were saved by San Francisco keeper Romuald Peiser.
With the result the Deltas remain undefeated in second place in the NASL spring season with one wins and two draws.
