    Just as a side note, sports writing is very different from normal writing. It's almost like its own language, in my opinion.

    I would assume that he made two goals (?), that the first was around the 13-minute mark and the second (goal) was right around the half-hour mark of the game/period.

    I agree with JamesM. Keita scored twice in the first half, once after 13 minutes and again after about 30 minutes.

    Thanks for the clarification, Rover. I'm really not interested in sports and my lack of knowledge shows. :) To me, making a goal and scoring a goal are the same. The distinction is good to know.
