Lackawanna soccer boys, 5-0

Ali Mohamed scored twice giving him seven goals in five games as the Lackawanna boys soccer team shut out defending Section VI Class C finalist Holland, 3-0, in ECIC IV. The Steelers improved to 5-0 overall. They were coming off an 8-3 win last week over Class B finalist Tonawanda.

"We're going pretty good right now," said coach Tom Kacalski. "They're playing soccer working the ball around. It helps that our defense is as solid as it's ever been. We've only given up five goals this season and three of them were to one team (Tonawanda)."

Suljo Mehmedovic had five saves for his second shutout.

. Junior Sam Eggleston had two goals, including the game-winner 40 seconds into overtime as St. Francis edged Canisius, 4-3, in Monsignor Martin Association soccer. Eggleston intercepted the ball at midfield, dribbled past two Canisius defenders, and put the ball into the side netting for his third goal of the season. Midfielder Aaron Hayes handed out two assists.



. Junior forward Jack Wuerfel scored the game-winner on a rebound just 30 seconds into overtime as the Orchard Park boys soccer team beat host Lancaster, 1-0, in ECIC I. Sophomore midfield Connor Saeli received the kickoff, made a few moves down the field and got a shot on goal. The goalie made the initial save, but it dropped inside the six and Wuerfel was right there to tap it in. It was Wuerfel's first goal of the season. OP goalie Brian Arcara had 12 saves to earn the shutout.



. Nicola Marcucci scored the game's lone goal in the second half as Nichols downed St. Joe's, 1-0, in Monsignor Martin soccer. Peter Calleri had 12 saves to earned the shutout as the Vikings picked up their first win in six starts.
