Varsity Boys Soccer Wins Fourth Straight; Defeats Houghton 6-0

Varsity Boys Soccer (4-0-1)

Marquette 6, Houghton 0

The MSHS Varsity Boys Soccer Team traveled to Houghton this past Saturday (9/12/20) for a wet and rainy game.

Marquette had several chances early and finally got on the board with a Connor Johnson (senior) goal, which was assisted by junior Axel Vermaat at the 10-minute mark.  A few minutes later, senior Lewis Goff converted a penalty kick for a 2-0 lead.  Sophomore Max Dawson then made it 3-0 off a Brett Wittler (senior) pass.  Just before halftime, junior Nick Lindberg blasted in an unassisted goal from 18 yards out.

Marquette would add two second half goals to win the game by a final margin of 6-0.  Second half goals came from Johnson and junior Harrison Anthos; Johnson’s goal was assisted by Vermaat again while the Anthos goal was unassisted.

Senior Liam Jeevar faced 3 shots in net.

From Head Coach Dan Salmon:

“We were missing some key players today out with injuries and ended up losing 3 more during the game. The rest of the team rose to the occasion and took on longer shifts. Johnson really stepped it up and our defense is now riding a 4 game shut out streak. Very proud of these guys.”

 Junior defender Michael Poggi sends in a free kick vs. Houghton.
