Game Recap

On a cool evening in Mentor the visiting Avon Lake Shoremen dominated the first half en route to a 3-0 victory over the Cardinals.

Early on Mentor found some success with their possession-based system, moving the ball side to side and creating overloads they could exploit with quick passes. Avon Lake managed to negate the Cardinal attack and soon righted the ship to take control of the game.

The first big chance was a ball that found senior Charlie Yungvirt on the left side of the Cardinal 18 yard box, but his shot was fired ever so slightly wide. Later, in the 23rd minute, senior Jack Lawniczak’s long free kick bounced dangerously in the 6 yard box before a Mentor defender could clear in front of the goal.

Avon Lake finally broke through in the 27th minute as junior Cam Salco got wide with the ball and fired an incisive cross into the box that beat both the Cardinal defense and their keeper before senior Matt Furrer hammered it home to make it 1-0. The goal was Furrer’s first on the year.

Just a few minutes later the Shoremen capitalized again on an almost identical play, with the only difference being Salco’s cross was turned home by Yungvirt to make it 2-0. Salco’s two assists bring his season total to 3.

In the 36th minute Avon Lake hit paydirt once again after some nifty dribbling by junior Andrew Jacobson allowed him to penetrate. His attempted through ball got deflected by an unlucky Cardinal defender right to Yungvirt, who placed his shot to the right corner to make it 3-0. With his two goals tonight Yungvirt increases his tally this season to 7, bringing him into a tie with junior Edison Lemanowicz for second on the team. Jacobson earned his fourth assist, second most on the team.

The second half was relatively uneventful as Mentor could not find a finishing touch and Avon Lake failed to increase their advantage. But the Shoremen cruised to a tidy clean sheet while also getting plenty of minutes from their bench. Making his debut at forward was sophomore Will Meyer, who put in a good shift up top to keep the Cardinals on their heels.

With a final score of 3-0, the Shoremen shutout was shared by junior goalie Dino Pietromica, who started the game, and senior Philip Jones, who finished it. They combined for 4 saves, though neither were ever seriously threatened.

“I’m proud of how the boys responded after a tough loss last night,” said head coach Pete Klepek. “It is not easy to bounce back the next day, let alone for a road game an hour away. A lot of boys contributed to this win, which makes it that much sweeter.”

The win improves varsity’s record to 8-3-4. JV fell 2-0 in the early game, just their third loss on the year, to drop to 11-3-1. Both teams have one game remaining in the regular season. Varsity hosts SWC counterpart Midview on Wednesday October 11th for Senior Night, while JV will host Solon’s JV in their finale. Games are at 5 and 7.

Game Recap

In what was a tight game for the whole first half and start of the second, Olmsted Falls earned a 3-0 victory over Avon Lake.

From the opening kickoff, both teams had runs of good play as they fought in the first half to establish control. It felt like a playoff atmosphere as the Bulldogs brought a sizable cheering section, cowbell and all.

The best chance for Avon Lake happened with 10 minutes left in the first when senior Jack Lawniczak got the ball in the corner and beat his defender to get to the end line for a dangerous ball into the 6 yard box. Two Shoremen were converging but the ball was swept away before it could be turned home.

The half ended with a deserved scoreline of 0-0. The Shoremen looked to maintain their level of play entering the second and did–but only for a few minutes. In the second half, the half chances Olmsted Falls got all seemed to find the back of the net.

In the 47th minute an Avon Lake clearance ended up right back at the feet of a Bulldog player, who took it wide and sent a cross in that was hammered home to make it 1-0.

The next 15 minutes or so Avon Lake competed again, mostly playing Olmsted Falls even but having a hard time generating consistent offense. The Shoremen were without second leading scorer Edison Lemanowicz, who was forced out of the lineup due to injury right before kickoff, and his presence up top was missed.

Olmsted Falls added their second goal in the 64th minute, and it looked very similar to the first. The Bulldogs beat a Shoremen defender down the left side and put in a cross that their teammate beat another Shoremen defender to and hit it home.

At this point a tired Avon Lake team was pushing forward to try and make something happen, while Olmsted Falls cleared any chances long in hopes of finding a runner in space or a bouncing ball to contest.

Just 3 minutes later fortune favored the Bulldogs as the Shoremen stopped a shot in the box only to have the rebound stay right at the feet of the Bulldog player. His second attempt was right at the keeper Stephen Jones but managed to squirt underneath him to make the final margin 3-0.

“I thought we played hard in the first half and played the SWC champs even,” said head coach Pete Klepek. “Giving up the goal early in the second changed the complexion of the game, and we could not recover. Congratulations to Olmsted Falls on earning the championship.”

With the loss Avon Lake drops to 7-3-4 on the season, 3-2-3 in the SWC.

In the early game the JV earned a tidy 2-0 victory, with goals by freshman Liam Reutter and sophomore Will Meyer. JV improves to 11-2-1 on the year.

It’s a quick turnaround for the Shoremen as they travel to Mentor tomorrow for away games at 5pm and 7pm.

Tyler Madden overcame a few rough holes to shoot an 83 in his first Sectional tournament, and Michael Petrus shot an 85 despite a painful wrist injury. Coach Wilson couldn’t be more proud of his team, they’re a great group of golfers and young men. Next up is the District tournament at Pine Hills next Wednesday, Oct. 11. Way to go Shoremen!

Game Recap

Today the Shoremen went to Nike park to take on Normandy. The Shoremen came to play today and dominated the possession from the beginning of the game to the end. The Shoremen created many chances on goal and in the 36th minute Sophomore Drew Del Giuduice received the ball with his back to the goal, flicked it with the outside of his right foot and nutmegged the defender. He rolled off the defender, took a touch and smashed a hard right-footed shot on goal. The goal keeper made a great save from the shot but couldn’t handle it and Junior Edison Lemanowicz finished it on goal, his 7th goal of the season. The Shoremen were up 1-0 at half.

The second half was much like the first in terms of Shoremen domination. The offense was controlled by Senior Jack Lawniczak, moving the ball forward to create chances on goal and taking multiple shots himself, just missing with shots off the crossbar. The second goal came in the 76th minute when Senior Carter Chippi cleared a long ball into the box that was received by Senior Charlie Youngvirt on the outside. Youngvirt cut to the middle and slotted the ball past the keeper on the near post. This was Youngvirt’s 5th goal of the season. In all, the Shoremen had 30 shots on goal to Normandy’s 5. A strong defensive effort from the back line of Seniors Carter Chippi, Austin Baraona and Aidan Flinn, Juniors Joey Caputo and Andrew Jacobson, and Sophomore Derek Stepak kept Normandy off the board. Baraona was the anchor of the defense in this win against Normandy. Sophomore keeper Stephen Jones earned the Shoremen’s 4th shutout of the season.

The Shoremen JV team were victorious as well, defeating Normandy 10-0. Two Freshmen players, Logan Allemeier and Zach Ramsey, each had hat tricks in the game to lead the team to victory. Next up for the Shoremen are the SWC Conference leaders Olmsted Falls Bulldogs on Wednesday at Avon Lake Memorial Field at 5 pm for JV and a 7 pm Varsity start.
