TRENTON HIGH SCHOOL: 1
Monroe Boys’ soccer produced a fine display of attacking soccer to beat a resolute Trenton team 5-1 at Custer stadium this afternoon.
Monroe started on the front foot and produced a flurry of opportunities in the first ten minutes. Unfortunately the game was halted for some time following a collision which led to Monroe’s #9 Dean Carter leaving the field.Happily after a precautionary visit to the ER he was able to rejoin his team on the sidelines before the end of the game.
Monroe opened the scoring when Xander Middleton cut into the box following a nice combination between J’von Miller and Isaac Langerman to beat the keeper in the bottom corner. Miller hit the foot of the post and then the bar from long range before finally smashing home a shot from 20 yards after a pass from Colin Charnock.
Miller continued to control the game, winning the ball back numerous times and spraying passes around the field in an outstanding performance. Monroe kept up the pressure and Berto Flores played in Middleton to add another. Just before halftime Miller rose above the Trenton defense to head home a Charnock corner. Monroe’s #10 enjoying a memorable game on 10/10!!
In the second half Monroe continued to press but some excellent goalkeeping and the woodwork (twice) prevented the Trojans from adding to the score. Trenton pulled one back with a long rage effort before Caleb Blackwell completed the scoring with a powerful right footed shot after another assist from Charnock.
Lots of great performances from the Trojans today.In particular Vince Bonanni, Manuel Diaz and Avery Knauer in defense and Austin Dunn worked very hard in the midfield.
Final Score 5-1 Season record is 9-6
