Greenville, Tucson each score three points in an exciting tie
GREENVILLE, SC – Greenville Triumph SC and Tucson FC had an exciting 3-3 draw at Legacy Early College on Sunday night.
In a fast-paced first half, both teams met twice, each with one penalty. Charlie Dennis gave the visitors an early lead, only minutes later Aaron Walker equalized and both midfielders would score a brace before halftime.
Walker gave Greenville the lead in the 34th minute, but Dennis brought Tucson back in the 41st minute. The Englishman then completed his hat-trick in the 61st minute and headed Tucson back into the lead.
The game featured a final late turn when Nico Brown pounced on a loose ball in the penalty area to score his first goal for Greenville at a very opportune time.
