The Emerson Middle School soccer team completed a successful 3-game ‘road trip’. The Eagles started things off at Steiner School, earning a well-played and hard-fought 1-0 win to finish the first half of the regular season. Vincent Pelosi scored the game-winner late in the second half. Emerson went to Washtenaw Christian next, and came away with another shutout, this time by a 3-0 score. Zack Kubisiak got the lone goal of the first half, with a perfect shot to the top corner. Vincent Pelosi and Isabel Crumm scored insurance goals in the second half. In the final road game of the season, the Eagles made the long drive to Plymouth Spiritus Sanctus. Vincent gave the kids an early lead, and then Anna Lonrenzon made it 2-0 midway through the first half. The Crusaders did score late in the half, only the third goal allowed by Emerson this season, and at intermission the score was 2-1. Gabe Seir got things started in the second half, restoring the two goal lead, followed soon after by Vince’s second of the day, and then Samuel Bechar capped the scoring, for a 5-1 final.
The Eagles record stands at 7-0-0, heading into three straight home games to finish the regular season.
