North Carolina FC secures road win over Miami FC
Posted August 6
North Carolina FC appeared to have dropped two points after Spring Season Champion Miami FC fought back to erase a two-goal lead, but a late tally from Christian Ibeagha earned the visitors all three points in a 3-2 win at Riccardo Silva Stadium.
The game had an incredible finish with each side getting a goal in stoppage time. Ibeagha provided the winning goal when he connected with Tiyi Shipalane's free kick in the second minute of second-half stoppage time. Miami's Stéfano Pinho had just equalized the contest a minute before on a low shot from inside the box that deflected into the goal.
The visitors took the lead in the 27th minute on Jonathan Glenn's first goal for the club after joining the team in a trade from Jacksonville Armada FC. He slotted home from in close after receiving a pass from Steven Miller. The club doubled its lead in the 67th minute when Marcel Kandziora struck from distance.
Michel started Miami's comeback with a goal from the penalty spot in the 87th minute.
