In round three of the Ontario Christian Christmas Classic, Maranatha was looking to regain some lost ground from a pair of losses earlier in the tournament. They faced Arrowhead Christian, and the two teams traded shots throughout the game. Matthew Morales found the net in the first half for the Minutemen, with just five minutes gone on the clock. Ten minutes later, the eagles answered. The 1 – 1 draw was broken shortly after the break, when Matthew Malhotra scored off an assist by Matthew Morales, and the Minutemen were on top again. However, with under five minutes left in regulation, the Eagles equalized, and sent the game to penalty kicks. Maranatha keeper Reese Turknette came up big in goal, blocking the Eagles final attempt, before stepping to the spot to bury the game winning pk. The Minutemen’s final match of the tournament is Friday afternoon at 2pm against Troy.
