East Lansing High School
MASON- It’s rare to score three goals but only win 2-1 in the game of soccer but the East Lansing Junior Varsity boys did just that during a Saturday morning clash with the Mason Bulldogs.
The Trojans opened the scoring when Cade Moreno knocked a beautiful set piece to the head of Benno Staszewski to put East Lansing up 1-0. Moments later the Bulldogs found the equalizer when the ball deflected off the head of a Trojan defender knotting the game at 1-1.
After a tightly played second half the Trojans had a flurry of activity with less than two minuted remaining when Evan Wood was brought down in the box leading to a penalty kick scored by Moreno.
Nekko Criswell-Grinage played extremely well delivering on five saves including a point blank opportunity late in the game. Andrew Mahler, Aiden Rudy, Brock Hogan and Xzavier Konnet did a tremendous job in the back.
East Lansing will host Lansing Everett on Monday at the Arch. Game starts at 5PM. The Trojans are 6-1-1 on the season.
