A lightning quick two goal scoring burst early in the second half keyed Roy-Hart to a 3-1 victory over Medina/Lyndonville this evening in a Niagara-Orleans League boys soccer game at Vets Park.

Roy-Hart broke away from a 1-1 deadlock when Trent Choats scored just 4:20 into the second half.

The Rams then quickly doubled their advantage to 3-1 when Noah Stern scored just 57 seconds later on a rebound shot.

Roy-Hart also got off to  a quick start in the opening half grabbing a 1-0 lead just 3:09 in on a goal by Sterm.

Medina/Lyndonville though battled back to knot the contest when Nate Dillenbeck scored on a header off a corner by Jacob Corser with 11:17 to go in the half. (See Dillenbeck’s goal by clicking here.)

However, the Mustangs could not find the net again as Rams goalie Colby Hancock made two big saves in each half. (See more game action by clicking here.)

Roy-Hart improves to 2-0 in N-O action while Medina/Lyndonville slips to 2-1.

In the other N-O games, Newfane (2-1) blanked visiting Albion (1-1) 4-0 and Wilson (1-2) nipped Akron (0-3) 1-0.

Trevor Heschke scored 2 goals for Newfane as Max Czekaj and Jeremy Foltz each added one.

Joey Moote netted the Wilson goal.
