Boys soccer posts a winning streak

The boys soccer team scored seven goals in two victories last week before dropping an away match. The wins were their second and third of the year. In a home match versus Greeneview, the team won 2–0, with both goals coming in the second half. Jacob Trumbull broke the deadlock with a hard shot off the underside of the crossbar. He then took an Eli Biggs pass behind the defenders and sent a low, hard pass to the far post that Mario Cosey tapped in at close range.

At Emmanuel Christian later in the week, the team brought home a 5–0 win, netting all five goals in the first half. Aldo Duque opened scoring by finishing Trumbull’s cross from the left flank in the second minute of the match. Five minutes later Isaac Haller put the visitors up 2–0 when he headed in Cole Edwards’ throw-in. Trumbull increased the Yellow Springs lead in the 16th minute, assisted by Duque, with a 20-yard strike. Trumbull went on to net his second goal, assisted by Jamie Scott’s cross from the right corner. Just before halftime Will Turner earned the final goal of the night by tapping in a loose ball with the heel of his boot. Haller closed out the game in a goal for the Bulldogs, preserving the shutout win with a brilliant one-handed diving save to his right of a point-blank shot in the closing minutes of the contest.

The team’s winning streak ended at Sidney on Saturday against Lehman Catholic, in a match that ended 1–2. The Bulldogs went down by a goal before halftime, but pulled even early in the second half with a goal by  Cosey, assisted by Trumbull. With less than 10 minutes left Lehman Catholic earned the win with a head ball shot from six yards out that slipped through the fingers of the Bulldogs keeper.
