I-Prep, Riverside roll on
International Prep at Grover Cleveland remained unbeaten (5-0) in D’Youville Cup boys soccer with a 5-0 triumph over Olmsted at All High Stadium. Pa Lu, a freshman, had a pair of goals, giving him eight for the season. Christian Gaetan, Kee Doe and Mohamed Nasher had single tallies, and Ibraham Omar registered the shutout.
“He faced only one shot on goal because we have a great defender in Ezana Kahsay,” said I-Prep coach Tony Alessi.
Riverside (6-0), which has not been scored on yet, triumphed over da Vinci, 7-0, as Hanid Put had four goals. I-Prep and Riverside will meet at 4 p.m. on Friday at Riverside Field.
