LAKEVILLE: The Falcons shut out Saginaw Arts and Sciences Academy 8-0 Tuesday. LakeVille led 4-0 at the half and tacked on four more goals in the second half.

“Goalkeeper Kohl Jobson played both halves; his first shutout in his soccer career,” said LakeVille coach Krista Daniels. “To make it more exciting, Kohl left the net several times in both the first and second half in an attempt to make LakeVille history as the first keeper to score. Unfortunately, after four shots on goal, the one he made was not counted, as Kohl was offsides at the time.”

Kory Knickerbocker and Mathis Schneider led with two goals apiece. Also scoring for LakeVille were Austin Williams, Chris Mims, Isaac Marguand, and freshman Cody Mims, who got the game-ending goal.

“Because we were able to play a more offensive game, several of our defenders and one forward, Chance Thomas, were able to experience the pitch from a different perspective at center midfield,” said Daniels. “There is definite improvement in ball handling skills from our Falcon varsity team comprised mostly of sophomores and freshmen.”

Daniels noted that the start of the game was a somber dedication in memory of 9/11.

“Sean Davis, the team’s tech guy, scorekeeper, and national anthem player, asked if the team could give a few moments before the game started,” said Daniels. “Announcer Adam Rose read a short selection and then introduced “Taps”, which was played by Sean Davis and Jeremy Jarrell, both members of the LakeVille Symphonic band.”

The Falcons are at Durand today. – L.P.
