Park was finally rewarded for his efforts in the 72nd minute when he made a great run down the middle of the pitch and played a beautiful through ball to Athan Cosse who converted the 1 v 1 with the keeper. The remainder of the game went without incident and Barça Residency Academy dropped Tucson Aztecs FC 2-0.
