BEVERLY HILLS — In a game with plenty of chances, both coaches spoke about the inability to capitalize at the optimal time.

And, fittingly, Bob Bukari and Tim Russell watched as their teams played to a 1-1 draw Thursday night.

“It was a terrific game; we just relaxed a bit on a restart and gave them a real good chance,” Russell, the Farmington Hills Harrison coach said after his team tied with Country Day. “But I liked the way we played.”

“The defense was so strong all night,” Bukari, Country Day’s coach, said. “We’ve just been struggling to score goals all year, and when we had chances, we couldn’t put them in.”

Country Day jumped out to a 1-0 lead at the 22-minute mark of the first half when Jasdeep Khiara found the back of the net.

Harrison’s Moussa Zaata evened the game with a tally of his own eight minutes into the second half, and that was all the scoring.

“The mistakes on offense kind of added up,” Bukari said. “But we played so well defensively and in goal. We’re a young team, a work in progress right now, so we’ll get better from this.”

Country Day is now 5-2-3.

“The goal is to learn from playing a good team like this,” Russell said. “We know what we have to do better.”

Harrison is 3-2-1 on the season.
