Boys Soccer

Our Boys Soccer team is 5-2-2 after their 4-3 loss to powerful Cathedral Catholic on Thursday, January 5.  On a rainy, foggy night the Lancers jumped out to a 2-0 lead over the two time defending Open Division champion, Dons.  Alex Goskowicz scored each of the goals.  The second goal was amazing!  The ball was behind Alex when he flipped it over his head using the back of his foot.  While still in the air, he ripped a shot into the back of the net.

In the first ten minutes of the second half, the Dons scored to draw within one goal.  Ryan Watson quickly answered with a goal for the Lancers and a 3-1 lead.  Unfortunately, the Dons constant offensive pressure became too much and they ultimately won 4-3 in one of the better games that has been played on Lauer Field.  

The Lancers will return to Lauer Field for a huge Coastal League game against Bishops on Thursday, January 12 at 7pm.
