NORTHVIEW HIGH SCHOOL: 0
The JV Boys Soccer team was back in action on Saturday morning, traveling up to Northview for a midseason matchup.
The JV Eagles came to play, and controlled the game with solid ball movement from front to back. The speed of play has steadily been ramping up this season, and that work was on display in the first half. However, it took a bit of time to get the finishing touch after a couple chances in the offensive end fizzled out. The Eagles broke through with Soren White controlling the ball near the top of the opponents box and playing through Boris Lalic to tuck away the first goal. After the restart, the Eagles continued the pressure on Northview, but did have a couple nervy moment when Northview played long balls overhead. Nevertheless, the back line of Isaiah King, Andrew Overvoorde, Carter Goodyke, Joe Pastoor, and keeper Mark VanHekken swept things up.
The second goal came with 7 minutes to go in the first half with Boris driving the ball all the way to the net from near the midfield for a 2-0 halftime lead.
The second half started strongly and the boys kept looking for the next goal. It came after about 10 minutes with Jack Jeppesen putting in good work high up the field to win the ball and play it to the top of the opponents 18-yard box where Peter Borst was waiting to neatly curl the ball in for the 3-0 lead. After that, the Eagles got a little comfortable and lost some intensity, but they were able to see out the half for the 3-0 win.
The Eagles are back in action on Tuesday for a matchup against Forest Hills Central.
