It has literally been a week when Medina/Lyndonvile was fit to be tied in Niagara-Orleans League boys soccer action.

On Tuesday, Medina/Lyndonville settled for a 3-3 overtime tie against Roy-Hart after seeing a two goal second half lead disappear. Then this afternoon the Mustangs played to a 1-1 overtime tie against Newfane at Vets Park.

Medina/Lyndonville grabbed a 1-0 lead midway through the first half as Steven Anderson scored off an assist from James Ianni. However, the Mustangs could not find the net again as Newfane made a goal by Patrick Eadie 14 minutes into the second half stand up for the 1-1 tie.

Goalie Adam Hoot came up with several key saves for Medina/Lyndonville.

Medina/Lyndonville is now 3-2-2 and Newfane 5-1-1.

Albion 2, CSAT 1
Snapping a season opening five league game losing streak, Albion came from behind to defeat host CSAT 2-1 this afternoon.

Albion pulled even on a goal by Marcos Sanchez in the first half and then netted the game winner with just 9:17 to go in the second half on a tally by Nich Reed off an assist form Dakota Henhawk.

“It was huge for us to get that first win,” Albion coach Greg Martillotta said. “Our defense played really well.”
