Medina boys soccer downs Roy-Hart

HS ROUNDUP: Mustang girls soccer falls to Akron


After playing to a 3-3 tie in the first meeting between the two teams, Medina was looking for a bit of revenge in its regular-season finale against Roy-Hart, as the Mustangs prepare for sectional playoff competition. And after a huge win over No. 1 Akron on Tuesday, the Mustangs wanted to avoid a letdown.


Mission accomplished. Medina found scoring from three different players, Adam Hoot earned his school-record-tying seventh shutout of the season, and the Mustangs earned a 3-0 victory over Roy-Hart in a Niagara-Orleans League game at Veterans Park on Thursday afternoon.


Scott Barber opened the scoring 18 minutes into the game, on a free-kick assist from Brennan O'Conner. James Ianni scored directly on a corner kick with just two minutes remaining in the first half, to give Medina a 2-0 edge at intermission.


The lone goal of the second half came 12 minutes in, as O'Conner fed Anthony Pane for the score. From there, it was just a matter of playing good defense and securing Hoot the shutout. With the effort, Hoot ties Mike Merritt (2010) for most shutouts all-time by a Mustang.


Medina finishes the regular season at 8-2-2 in league play, while Roy-Hart falls to 5-6-1. 


Medina earns the No. 2 seed in Class B-1 and will receive a first-round bye, opening the postseason in the B-1 quarterfinals next Wednesday. Start time is slated for 3:30 p.m. at Veterans Park, and the opponent is yet to be determined.


Akron 5, Albion 0
AKRON — The Purple Eagles held tough against the N-O league champs and played to a first-half tie, but Akron pulled away in the second half on Thursday afternoon, in the league regular-season finale for both teams.


Chris Mayrose and Randy Mayer scored two goals apiece for the Tigers, who conclude the regular season at 11-1 in league play. Albion finishes at 2-9-1 in the league.
