The East boys soccer team defeated Lakota West Tuesday evening by a score of 1-0. East created several scoring opportunities in the first half but came up just short of getting on the board. Junior goalkeeper, Nic Nemen, came up big midway through the first half, saving a penalty kick to keep the score knotted at 0-0.
In the 60th minute senior, Luke Birdsong, buried a free kick in the top shelf of the goal past a diving West Keeper to give the Hawks the lead 1-0. Lemen and the Hawks defense was credited with the shutout. East record moves to 7-3-3 ( 4-2 GMC).
East returns home this Thursday as they take on Middletown.
