Charlotte, NC – The Charlotte Eagles defeated the Carolina Dynamo 3-1 to earn their second PDL victory of the season on Saturday night. Kelvin Omondi scored a goal in his fourth straight game, while Joao Costa and Ryan Williams also tallied goals for the hosts.
Charlotte got on the board first in the 23rd minute as Ryan Williams found Kelvin Omondi at the top of the box, Omondi was able to elude a Dynamo defender before sending a right footed shot past Dynamo keeper Ryan Cretens.
Charlotte struck again in the 27th minute as Williams picked up a pass from Jovan Petrovic before releasing Joao Costa down the left flank. Costa took one touch before bending a left footed shot past Cretens to double the hosts advantage 2-0. The match headed to the break with the Eagles by that same score.
Ryan Williams added a goal to his tally to go along with his two assists in the 55th minute. Joao Costa flicked a ball in to the Dynamo penalty area where Williams picked it up after avoiding a Dynamo defender and slotting it home to push the score to 3-0.
Carolina struck back, negating Humberto Pelaez’s five-save clean sheet effort, in the 76th minute. Danny Elliot beat two Eagles defenders before sending in a dipping effort past Pelaez to get the visitors on the board, 3-1.
