Unleashing a barrage of goals, Medina/Lyndonville romped to an 8-0 victory over Newfane at Vets Park this afternoon to regain first place in the tight Niagara-Orleans League boys soccer title race.

Improving to 6-1 in the league, the Mustangs open up a half game lead over 5-1 Roy-Hart and a full game lead over 5-2 Newfane.

Dan Mandujano scored three goals and Nathan Dillenbeck two to lead the Mustangs attack as Nate Sherman, Jonathan Slingerland and Oskar Heinsler each chipped in with one.

The Mustangs grabbed a quick lead when Mandujano scored off an assist from Dillenbeck just 3:46 into the game.

Two lightning quick goals just 19 seconds apart the first by Dillenbeck, off an assist from Mandujano, and by the second by Sherman on a long looping shot made it 3-0 before the contest was 15 minutes old.

Mandujano followed up with two more goals, the first on a header and the second on a long shot. Dillenbeck followed up with another tally off a nice cross from Heinsler to make it 6-0 at the half.

Second half goals by Slingerland, off an assist from Dillenbeck, and by Heinsler rounded out the Mustangs scoring parade.
