Notching victory No. 10 on the season, Medina/Lyndonville shut out Roy-Hart 3-0 this afternoon at Vets Park in a Niagara-Orleans League boys soccer game.

Medina/Lyndonville built up a 2-0 half-time advantage as Scott Barber scored his third goal off the season off an assist from Brennen O’Connor and James Ianni netted his 11th of the campaign off a corner just before the half.

“Both of those goals were off set pieces,” Medina/Lyndonville coach Steve Luksch said. “That is what did us in the last time we faced them (a 3-3 tie). So we’ve been working on that and it was nice to see us score two goals off set pieces.”

The Mustangs put a lock on the win when Anthony Pane score his seventh of the season 12 minutes into the second half on a rebound off a wild flurry which saw no less than four shots in rapid fire fashion.

“It was nice to see us crash the goal like that,” Luksch said. “That’s one we needed.”

Adam Hoot earned the shut out in goal for the Mustangs, his sixth in league action.
