Salmon nets winner for Redmen

EAGLE RIVER, Wis. — Freshman Max Dawson and senior Trevor Salmon scored for Marquette as the Redmen boys soccer team won at Northland Pines 2-1 on Saturday.

The hosts opened the scoring on an unlucky bounce as Marquette’s clearing attempt bounced off the referee to NP’s Trevor Romatoski, who flipped the ball to teammate Alex Sterhagen for a breakaway score.

Dawson tied the game on a left-footed shot about 40 feet out to make the score 1-1 at intermission. Senior teammate Julian Greason assisted on the Redmen’s first-half goal.

Salmon netted the game winner and only goal of the second half off a long assist from senior defender Cross Lakenen.

Sophmore goalkeeper Harrison Anthos faced two shot in each half to help MSHS improve to 9-5-1 as it hosts Sault Ste. Marie for Senior Night at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

“We came out a little slow and had a really unlucky bounce off the ref to go down in the first 10-15 (minutes), but once we settled in and started marking defensively, we played a much better game,” Marquette head coach Dan Menze said. “In the end we had two amazing shots from Max and Trevor, both with their opposite foot, to get the win.

“The team defended great as a unit and really didn’t give up too many shots.”
