Boys’ V Soccer Wins Season Opener, 5-0
Luifer Gomez ’21 scored twice and was joined in finding the net by teammates Foday Bangura ’22, Diego Morgan ’20, and Chuks Ugori ’23 during Mercersburg’s 5-0 season-opening victory over visiting Scotland Campus September 3 in a boys’ varsity soccer contest on Steiger Field.
Both of Gomez’s goals in his first game in a Blue Storm uniform came in the first half; he opened the scoring in the 9th minute after taking a through ball from Morgan. Bangura made it 2-0 in the 26th minute off an assist from Khoa Nguyen ’22, and Gomez scored his second goal in the 36th minute when he stole the ball from a Scotland defender and scored for a 3-0 halftime lead.
Morgan tapped in a pass from Bangura at the back post in the 68th minute, and three minutes later fed Ugori for the final tally of the contest. Alex Lorenzo ’20 and Blake Boggess ’20 combined for a clean sheet in goal.
The Storm (1-0) hosts Malvern Prep Saturday, September 7. Kickoff is at noon.
