Knights soccer opens 1-0 against Marengo
MAPLE PARKâ€”Against the always physical Marengo Indians, the host Knights soccer squad held its own, enough to open 2009 with a win.
The 4-2 win on Tuesday started off with a 1-1 tie after the first 40 minutes, but Jordan Escobedoâ€™s goal six minutes into the second half gave Kaneland a 2-1 lead.
â€œI called for the ball and Kevin (Szatkowski) gave me a nice pass. Iâ€™m excited, it was the first goal in high school,â€ Escobedo said.
Kevin Szatkowski had three assists. Derek White had two goals with Alex Gil adding another goal. Joe Garlinsky had an assist.
