A goal in the opening seconds proved to be enough to earn defending champion Roy-Hart a narrow 1-0 win over host Akron this afternoon in a key early season Niagara-Orleans League girls soccer game.

Kaitlin Mettler scored the lone goal just 30 seconds in off a corner by Kaylie Churchill.

Roy-Hart is now 2-0 and Akron 2-1.

In the other N-O games, Wilson also improved to 2-0 with a 15-0 win at Medina (0-3) and Newfane (2-1) edged visiting Albion (0-3) 1-0 in overtime.

Addy Elia and Rian Faery both scored 3 goals to lead a parade of 10 Wilson goal scorers.
