A lightning quick three goal scoring burst late in the first half keyed Mt. Morris to a 7-1 victory over host Kendall this afternoon in the Eagles non league season opening boys soccer game.

Kendall did grab a 1-0 lead as Mickey Gardner scored on a header off a direct kick by Nate Warters with 15:50 to go in the opening half.

However, Mt. Morris answered right back with a burst of three straight goals, two by Steven Soto and one by Collin Young, between the 13 and 10 minute marks to take charge.

The Blue Devils made it 4-1 before the half on another tally by Soto and then netted three unanswered goals in the second half by Ryan Morgan, Dylan Cicero and Joey Pagano.

Medina/Lyndonville 1, Newfane 0
Medina/Lyndonville evened its Niagara-Orleans League record at 1-1 by nipping host Newfane 1-0 as Nate Dillenbeck scored off an assist from Casey Winiecki in the first half.

Ray Paull earned the shutout in goal as Nate Sherman, Evan Horn, Jack Whipple, Jonathan Pietrafesa and Noah Heinsler anchored the Mustangs defense.

Newfane is also 1-1.

Albion 5, Akron 3

Nate Scanlan had 2 goals and 2 assists to lead the way for Albion in the 5-3 win at Akron as Sam Sanchez, Angel Rosario and Harrison Brown each chipped in with a goal.

Albion jumped out to a 3-1 first half lead as Scanlan scored from Kendyll Hadick and then assisted on the goals by Sanchez and Rosario.

In the second half for the Purple Eagles Brown scored from Hadick and Scanlan from Rosario.

Albion is now 2-0 and Akron 0-2 in N-O competition.
