Warriors shut out Cocalico to stay unbeaten in SectionBoys’ Soccer
Freshman midfielder Armin Efendic had a two-point game, including a late insurance goal, and the Warwick boys soccer team posted a 2-0 shutout over Cocalico in a Section One-Two crossover game in Denver on Monday.
The victory improved the Warriors’ league record to 3-0 in Section One (4-1 overall).
Following a scoreless first half, Asher Klahold’s tally with 17:15 elapsed in the second, on an assist from Efendic, gave the WHS boys a lead they never relinquished.
Warwick held an 11-4 advantage in shots, but it remained only a one-goal game until Efendic beat Eagles’ keeper Austin Zeiber with just 1:06 remaining to double the Warriors’ lead. Ryan Bertrando added an assist on the play.
The Warwick boys also built an 8-1 edge in corner kicks, but Zeiber finished with nine saves to keep Cocalico in striking distance. Senior Tanner Biemesderfer had four stops between the pipes for the Warriors.
