TACOMA, Wash. – Micah Wenzel scored the game winner with 1:15 left and the Tacoma Stars Reserves flipped the script on the Oly Town Artesians, notching a nail biting 4-3 win on Saturday night at the Tacoma Soccer Center.

Goalkeeper JJ Olson played his best game as an Artesian making 23 saves in the loss, including a brutal peppering in the third quarter that kept the game even at 3-3 after three quarters of play. The two teams battled throughout the fourth quarter with Tacoma pressing and getting the most opportunities and easily killing a power play midway through the quarter. The pressure finally got to the Artesians defense when Wenzel buried a shot from the left side for the win. Three weeks earlier, it was the Oly scoring twice in the final 60 seconds to pull out a last minute win over Tacoma.
