Mutiny secures franchise’s first-ever berth to playoffs

mbmutiny-header For the first time in the NPSL franchise’s five-year history, the Myrtle Beach Mutiny are going to the playoffs.

The Mutiny (7-1-1) secured their first-ever postseason berth Saturday night with a 3-1 victory over the visiting FC Carolina Discovery at Ashley Booth Field.

Myrtle Beach broke a scoreless tie late in the first half with a pair of goals within a 4-minute span. Hector Rivas put the Mutiny on the scoreboard first with a goal in the 38th minute, and Jon Ander made it a 2-0 halftime lead with a goal in the 42nd minute.

The Discovery quickly responded to start the second half with a goal to cut the deficit in half, but the Mutiny defense stiffened the rest of the way. Noah Gulley added a late insurance goal in the 94th minute.

The Mutiny have three more regular season games before opening the NPSL Playoffs beginning July 17. The Mutiny host the Upward Stars on Wednesday night.
