Indoor: Twisters Drop Heartbreaker
Tulsa Earns Franchise's First Win
January 27, 2008
CLEAVLAND, Oh. -- A dramatic, last-second finish gave the Tulsa Revolution their first win in franchise history, 7-6, at the expense of the Massachusetts Twisters in American Indoor Soccer League action Saturday night.
With less than 10 seconds to go in front of a league-high crowd of 1,218, Revs keeper Sonny Dalesandro came out of goal, and was fouled, putting the Twisters over the quarterly foul limit. Mike Leung converted the shootout giving the Revs (1-2) the win.
We had to fight for this one, said a jubilant Revolution president Adam Mellor after the game.
Big crowd, great game, said Twisters owner Paul Lapointe. Its a shame we couldnt pull it out, but all marks to the Revolution. Theyre a class team, and a great addition to the league.
Twisters keeper Paul Dellostritto took a knock to the head during the game, but returned later on, bandaged up. Lapointe said that Dellostritto would be getting stitched up afterwards.
Franco and Tony Catiearra and Jeff Deren were among the scorers for the Twisters (2-6), and Michael Poneys, Emerson Aguilera, and Bryant Scrapper were amongst the scorers for the Revolution.
The Twisters will return to the field next Saturday night when they head to Tulsa in a rematch with the Revolution.
