Win Against Steiner Moves Emerson Record to 4–0
The Emerson Middle School soccer team made the short trip to Steiner School Thursday evening, and came away with their 4th win of the young season. Emerson kept the ball in the Steiner end for the great majority of the first half, and the relentless pressure was reflected in the 5-0 score at intermission. While the defense prevented even one shot on the Emerson goal, the Eagles’ Gabe Kellman found the back of the Steiner net four times, with an assist or two from Zack Kubisiak, who also scored ‘the other’ goal.
Steiner mounted a bit more offense in the second half, but never truly threatened, with only a couple so-so shots from poor angles. Gillian Giordano, meanwhile, added a goal for Emerson, to push the lead to 6-0, and many other teammates came close. Zack finished the scoring with two more, and the defense held tight for another shutout, this time 8-0.
The Eagles will next host Spiritus Sanctus Plymouth on Thursday, 9/29.
