An early three goal scoring burst sparked Medina/Lyndonville to a 4-2 victory over host Albion this morning in a Niagara-Orleans League boys soccer game.

Medina/Lyndonville jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead on a goal by Steven Anderson just five minutes in off an assist from Greg Husung.

The Mustangs advantage quickly soared to 3-0 before the contest was 13 minutes old as Brian Anderson scored twice within a spam of just three minutes off assists first from Kristian Snyder and then from Vassilios Bitsas.

Albion though came battling back to slice the deficit to 3-2 as Jacoby Miller scored with 11 minutes to go in the first half and Dylan Bader tallied three minutes into the second half.

However, Albion could not pull even and Medna answered with what proved to be the clinching goal by Steven Anderson with 16 minutes remaining off an assist from James Ianni.

Medina/Lyndonville is now 2-0 and Albion 0-1 in N-O action.
