Hustling and scrapping for 80 minutes, Medina/Lyndonville knocked champion Akron from the ranks of the unbeaten by a narrow 1-0 margin this afternoon in a Niagara-Orleans League game at Vets Park.

Steven Anderson netted the lone goal for Medina/Lyndonville off a throw in by James Ianni seven minutes into the second half.

Adam Hoot, who made several big saves, earned the shut out in goal for the Mustangs whose defense was also anchored by Barry Rogenmoser, Hayden Allis and Brennen O’Connor.

“That’s the best game we’ve played all year,” exclaimed a jubilant Medina coach Steve Luksch. “We were calm and focused the whole game. It was just a complete team effort from start to finish.”

Medina/Lyndonville improves to 7-2-2 in N-O action while Akron, which locked up the title last week, slips to 10-1.
