When Bethlehem Steel FC jumped out to its quickest two-goal lead in the club’s history against Pittsburgh on Sunday in front of the club’s largest crowd of the season, the duo of Santi Moar and Adam Najem rewrote the club’s young history book.
The duo combined on the match’s opening goal in the fifth minute of play, with a fantastic build up play from their left winger Santi Moar, who dribbled along the far side of the pitch before making a cut into the box. The Spaniard sliced up the Riverhounds defense before dishing off a pass to a wide open Najem in the box who buried home the goal to give Bethlehem the early lead.
Moar’s assist was his fifth of the regular season, giving the 23-year-old the all-time mark and breaking a tie with Najem.
Sole possession was brief, as just three minutes later Najem shared the scoring wealth. The 22-year-old midfielder dribbled into the box from the far side of the pitch and sent a ball in for a streaking Cory Burke who connected immediately.
