The Cleveland boys soccer team ended non-league play with a hard fought 0-0 draw at home against West Linn on Sept 26, which brought their record to 3-3-2.

The first game of PIL play for the Warriors was three days later on Sept. 29 at Benson. Benson entered with an 0-7 record, and they were not able to secure the win against Cleveland.

Miles Jeffery opened the scoring with a goal after running through the Benson defenders and slotting it past the goalie. Owen Rowe scored the second goal from just outside the box, making it 2-0. Paz Campbell made it 3-0 when he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way on a penalty kick. Rowe then tallied a brace to make it 4-0 and then Charlie Kibben made it 5-0 with a penalty kick for a well-earned 5-0 victory.

Cleveland returned home to take on Lincoln on Oct. 3, a team that stacked up similar to Cleveland with a 5-3-1 record. Lincoln got on the board first, but with about 20 seconds in the first half, Filippo Gallo equalized 1-1 after controlling the pass from Moso Gosnell and pushing it into the Cardinal’s goal. In the second half, Luca Vella intercepted the Cardinal’s attack, and immediately played a long pass to a striking Solomon Barnett. Barnett chipped it over the Lincoln goalkeeper to give the Warriors’ the lead, and Cleveland held on despite senior Josh Huss getting a nasty injury from a head to head contact.

The Warriors next game is against Grant on Oct. 6.
