HighlandersLogoJuly 7, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) - Following last weekend's 2-0 victory over the Portland Timbers U-23 squad, Victoria Highlanders FC headed to Washington to face the Crossfire with four more points securing a Northwest Division title for Victoria.

The Highlanders earned their first chance in the fourth minute, when Gavin Barrett lobbed a ball up the right side of the field, the lob was caught by Blair Sturrock who sent a cross pass to Brett Levis, who fired it high.

The Highlanders would answer back with a chance of their own minutes later, when Ravenhill went one-on-one against the Crossfire defender, getting room to fire a shot that went past the far right post.

At 30-minutes Washington forward Roldan fired a shot that Mitrou got a hand on, slowing it down before it could trickle behind him. Washington then received a chance to the right of Mitrou, with Roldan once again firing a shot that Barrett slid to block, the rebound going wide left.

The Crossfire would net the game's first goal at 39-minutes. With defensman Justin Schmidt converting on a penalty kick that was assessed to Tyller Hughes following a tackle on Roldan that the referee deemed worthy of a card.

Following Washington's goal, the Highlanders would gain the majority of possession for the remainder of the half, with Jordie Hughes getting a chance to answer back at 42-minutes, getting the ball at the 25-yard mark but firing the ball just left. The Highlanders would be unable to even the score before the half was up, with the shots favouring Washington 5-3.

At 46-minutes Mitrou raced 30-yeards out of his net to beat Roldan to the ball, kicking it away before the Crossfire striker could get a touch. Once again maintaining possession in the opening five-minutes, the Highlanders applied pressure in the offensive zone but were unable to capitalize.

At 53-minutes, Levis collided with goalkeeper Clark after breaking up the left wing, Clark would receive a yellow card. The free kick taken by Tyler Hughes, would go wide right.

At 63 minutes roldan would get a breakway, with Mitrou coming out to challenge, Roland would fire it past the goalleeper to put the Crossfire up 2-0.

Five minutes later, substitution Sam Prette would break up the right wing, firing a cross pass to Sturrock who one-touched it into the back of the net, tying the match with 12-minutes remaining.

Down a man, the Highlander would apply pressure, with Levis nearly converting a pass from Prette off a Highlanders corner kick in the 86th minute. Levis would receive another opportunity in extra-time but would fire it wide right. The game would end in a draw despite several Highlanders chances in the final ten minutes.
