SUPPORT A GOOD CAUSE — The Lake Shore boys varsity soccer team work pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, during its match on Oct. 7.
The Lake Shore boys soccer team celebrated senior night in style, defeating Cheektowaga 6 – 1 on Oct. 11.
Senior captain Wade Bergum scored four goals – bringing his total to six in the last two games – and assisted on two others. Senior captain Bryce Parker-Norton played the field and opened the scoring in the first minute. Jake Cozzo scored the other Eagles’ goal and Andrew McDonagh and Tom McTernan added assists in the match, with Mike Braeuner playing in goal. Lake Shore’s record now stands at 7 – 4 in league play and 9 – 5 overall. The Eagles concluded their regular season schedule with a night game at Amherst on Oct. 16.
The Eagles had just responded to a loss at home to Pioneer by playing what head coach Paul Taylor called their best game of the season, in a 3 – 0 win against visiting Maryvale on Oct. 9. The Eagles seized control of the game early, with all three goals in the first 20 minutes of the match.
Bergum scored a pair and Chris Beckley notched the other Lake Shore goal. Brauener was pressed into action in goal, due to an injury, and responded with a shutout.
Against Pioneer on Oct. 7, Lake Shore played its Breast Cancer Awareness Month match and wore specially designed jerseys for the event. During the match, the girls soccer players raised money for breast cancer awareness by selling pink bracelets and the boys soccer players will be raising money in the same way, during the upcoming girls match on Thursday, Oct. 17.
