Boys Soccer:  Silver Creek 2 – Charlestown 1

It was a close match throughout, as expected, but it was Silver Creek who found their way onto the scoreboard first off a penalty kick late in the first half from Junior Midfielder Jacob Atkins.  Silver Creek held the tenuous lead throughout a good portion of the second half as Charlestown struggled to get the ball in behind their staunch defense.  Finally it was a long through ball from Senior Attacking Midfielder Michael Navetta that assisted Junior Trent Wight for a sweet 1v1 against the Dragons keeper that allowed Wight to slot home the equalizer.  But the draw was not to be tonight, as the Charlestown goal tender was caught coming too far out off his line and watched helplessly as the ball bounced high up and over his head to Silver Creek Sophomore Merlin Palencia who drove home the game winner for the host Dragons.
