Boys Soccer Earns a Win, Settles for A Tie

(Sarah Neltner’20/Media)

Coming off of two disheartening ties, the boys soccer team looked to add to its win column with two games this week against Westerville South and Bloom Carroll.

After a week of practice, the team traveled to Westerville and took on the Wildcats on Thursday, September 19.

Junior Grant Edwards set the tone by dropping in an early goal to give the Vikes a 1-0 lead. South retaliated with a goal of its own to tie up the game at half.

Westerville scored first in the second half, but shortly after, senior  Sam Massick dribbled down the left flank and capitalized on a clean shot to even up the game. Immediately after, in a near mirror image of the previous goal, Massick scored on the right flank, but it was not enough to secure a win. Westerville scored one more goal with ten minutes left to cement a 3-3 tie, handing the Vikes their third draw in a row.

Determined to pull out a win, the Vikings took to Hondros Field to face off against Bloom Carroll on Saturday, September 21.

CA dominated possession throughout the first half with Massick scoring early. For his first goal, Massick’s jersey was being tugged from the back, but he still powered through to give the Vikes an early lead. Not long after, the senior was fouled within the box, allowing him to drill a penalty kick and provide the Vikings with a comfortable 2-0 halftime lead. Bloom Carroll didn’t do much to help itself, scoring an accidental own goal as the Vikes cruised to a 3-1 win, their first victory in the past couple weeks.

Our boys have two games this upcoming week, traveling to Whitehall-Yearling on Wednesday, September 25 and hosting Lancaster on Saturday, September 28.
