Panama City Beach, FL---It's not about how you start, it's how you finish. The Panama City Beach Pirates take those words true to heart.
After failing to win any of their first six matches, two straight W's have them at 2-4-2.
Looking for their third straight victory against Floridians F.C.
tonight at Gavlak, they had some extra support on their side from the Panama City chapter of the American Outlaws, the unofficial support squad for the US Men's National Team. Lots of red, white, and blue in the crowd, and lots of attacking from the Pirates early.
Mickey Lightbourne passes to Adi Kayara and the Norwegian comes away with the goal in just the 5th minute. PCB goes up 1.
That worked so well, go for it again. In the 12th minute Lightbourne looks for Kayara. Another ball in the back of the net as the score is 2-0 Pirates.
They add a third goal in the 26th minute when Mike Annarumma finds a path for the ball to reach the goal.
Pirates lead 3-0 at the break, but give up three of their own in the second half to tie 3-3.
