MAU boy's soccer beats Rutland
RUTLAND -- After a scoreless first 40 minutes, the Mount Anthony Union High School boy's soccer team racked up three second-half goals to defeat Rutland 3-1 at Rutland on Saturday.
"It was a little bit of a slow start," coach Mike Molloy said. "There were some jitters for both sides."
But after the break, Blake Greenawalt put the Patriots ahead after heading in a cross from Dylan Prazak just eight minutes into the half.
14 minutes later, Marcus LaFlamme got his name onto the score sheet when he was able to put home the rebound after Ethan Anderson had struck the post. LaFlamme would add the third just two minutes later.
Taking a pass from Matt Upright, LaFlamme was in on goal and went 1-on-1 with keeper Ethan Snitker before tucking the ball low and into the net.
Rutland would score its goal with 14 minutes left. Julian Marcell was credited with the strike.
MAU goalie Patrick Cody had four saves in the game on six shots, while Snitker had four saves on 13 shots for MAU.
"Any time we can go up to Rutland and win is terrific," Molloy said. "We will take that first win on the road, and hopefully be able to match that second half intensity up at [Burr and Burton] on Wednesday."
The game against Burr and Burton Academy will be at AppleJack field on Wednesday, with the start set for 7 p.m.
