Medina Journal-Register — ALBION - A quick two goal scoring burst in the first six minutes of the second half keyed front-running Albion to a come-from-behind 4-2 victory over Wilson Monday in a key Niagara-Orleans League boys soccer game.

In other N-O action, defending champion Akron defeated CSAT 6-1 and Newfane downed Roy-Hart 5-2 under the lights at Gasport.

Those results boosts Albion's record to 7-1-1 and keeps the Purple Eagles just ahead of 7-1 Newfane and 6-1-1 Akron.

Trailing 1-0, Albion quickly knotted the contest just 1:55 into the second half on a goal by Sam Remley, his fifth of the season.

Gaining the momentum, it took the Purple Eagles just four minutes to grab the lead as Trevor Haddick scored his first goal of the season just 6:33 into the half.

The Purple Eagles then broke the contest wide open midway through the half when Jackson Hamilton scored two goals in rapid fire succession, his sixth and seventh of the campaign, at the 24 and 21 minute marks.

"The kids stepped it up in the second half," Albion coach Greg Martillotta said. "They came out strong."

Wilson, which slips to 2-5, grabbed the 1-0 first half lead on a goal by Michael Thompson.

Liam McIntosh scored the Lakemen's other goal with just 2:53 remaining in the second half.

Chris Reed in goal anchored the Albion defense which also got a huge clearing kick by defender Jon Poole early in the second half when it was still a tight one goal game.

Albion next hosts rival Medina at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Newfane 5, Roy-Hart 2

GASPORT - Brian Doyle had two goals and an assist, Pat Eadie one goal and two assists, Brett Stern a goal and an assist and Brad Duchow a goal to lead the balanced attack for Newfane.

Jared Hinkson scored both goals for Roy-Hart in the second half which knotted the contest at 2-2.

Roy-Hart, which trailed 2-0 at the half, slips to 1-7.

Akron 6, CSAT 1

AKRON - Chris Mayrose erupted for four goals to lead the way for Akron which also got solo tallies by Randy Meyer and Nicholas Doria.
