recorded eight saves to lead the Lincoln College men's soccer team
to a 2-0 victory over Lake County at the LC field Saturday. It was
the opening game of the season for the Lynx, who will be in action
Tuesday at Kishwaukee.
The two teams battled through the first
half without a goal; however, the Lynx were able to push in two
goals in the second half. The first goal was scored by Adrian
Contreras on an assist from Miguel Orozco, and the second goal was
scored by Santos Omal Rodriguez with an assist from Contreras.
"We played the game without three
starters, for various reasons, and I thought Paul Davis and Leandro
Jones both played very well since they were playing positions they
normally wouldn't be filling," said Lincoln College coach Ben
Massena. "For the first game it was good effort, and Chris (Pettineo)
played very well in goal, with one of his eight saves being a
breakaway, which was pretty amazing."
