BOYS SOCCER

Mid-Vermont 1, Twinfield 0

MARSHFIELD — Joel Roberts scored on a penalty kick in the 50th minute and teammate Stan Neslon recorded a 10-save shutout Wednesday, lifting Mid-Vermont Christian past the Trojans.

“It was one of those games where the ball just didn’t bounce in our favor,” Twinfield coach Peter Stratman said. “We’ve been rocked by a handful of key injuries recently and it definitely showed tonight. We had trouble getting into the rhythm of the game and were sloppy in possession. We had 19 shots on goal but couldn’t find the back of the net. And their keeper made several spectacular saves to keep it close.”

Goalie Jordyn Holt finished with six saves for Twinfield, which will face Christ Covenant at 4 pm. Thursday.

STRATTON — Tanner Ketchel buried one goal in regulation and scored again in the second overtime, lifting the Gumbies (1-4) to their first victory of the season.

NORTHFIELD – Freshman forward Joseph Thongsythavong tallied one goal and two assists to lead the Cadets on Wednesday night.

Norwich (9-2-1) scored goals 1:34 apart in the first half, with Amerle Nemeye and Matteo Iagrossi picking up goals on assists from Thongsythavong. Nemeye opened the scoring in the 20th minute, redirecting a pass from the right side from Thongsythavong off the bottom of the crossbar and into the back of the net for his sixth goal of the season. Just over a minute later Iagrossi scored his first collegiate goal with a well-struck ball into the top left corner of the net. Lopez found Thongsythavong with a pass from the left side of the penalty area that Thongsythavong was able to play back to Iagrossi, who fired the ball past Colby Sawyer keeper Lucas Boetsch.

Thongsythavong capped the scoring in the 54th minute with a deft touch into the bottom-right corner of the net off a through ball pass from Hunter Lortie.

Norwich freshman goalkeeper Robert Wagenseller stopped all four shots he faced to pick up his second career shutout. The Cadets will host Albertus Magnus at 6 p.m. Saturday.
