CANFIELD, Ohio- In a battle of two of the valley’s premier programs, it was Boardman who was able to come out on top of South Range by a score of 3-0 in Monday night’s boys’ soccer battle.
Both teams were coming into battle looking for their first win of the season, as Boardman had a 3-3 draw with Hoban to open their season, and South Range had a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to Ursuline to begin their season.
The first half was very physical from both teams, as neither wanted to let the opposition get any easy looks inside, which led to a scoreless tie going into the break.
The second half was all Boardman though. The Spartans controlled possession for much of the second half, and two goals by Sava Crnjak helped catapult Boardman to a 3-0 victory, their first of the season. In addition to Crnjak’s elite attacking ability, Carson Essad, the Spartans goalkeeper, was lights out in the net all night long.
