20' Northshore with a free kick just on the Mandeville side of midfield on the left. Sent up and long but Mandeville defends well. Now Northshore with a free kick from their defending third. 21' Mandeville 18 or 19 shot on goal from 18 yards center but pulls it left

Now the other way Mandeville gets a free kick from a Northshore charge in the back. Long. Northshore covers and out for a Mandeville throw on the right side top of the box. Mandeville with a shot top of the box but offside, keeper retains, play continues

Northshore fouls Mandeville from 30 yards center of the field. Direct free kick coming. Mandeville 21 on the ball. Sent to the breadbasket of the Northshore keeper. There's a minute remaining in the half.
Mandeville takes the lead. NHS had some opportunities, but couldn't find the right touch in the final third. MHS came out with a ton of intensity and was ready to capitalize on any mistakes. It'll be interesting to see what adjustments are made at half time. Will MHS get more defensive? I can see them causing trouble on the counterattack. NHS will undoubtedly be getting people forward. I'd expect them to continue playing in a fairly direct style.
