Two goals by Endre Lunde pushed the Hillcrest/Pelican Rapids Boys Soccer Team past the Crookston Pirates 2-0 on Thursday in Crookston.
Lunde picked up a loose ball inside the 18, four minutes into the contest, and placed a shot that beat the Pirate keeper. Lunde scored again with a blast from the top of the eighteen, following a drop back pass from Byron Varner, eleven minutes into the second half. The Comets saw a good defensive effort from several players including: Dillon O’Sullivan, Chris Franco, Eddie Mancilla, and Felipe Morenaholding the Pirates to just two shots on goal, giving Taylor Isaac his second shutout of the season
The Comets launched seventeen shots on the Pirate Goal, but, “our attack lacked patience and good shot execution,” observed head coach Rod Jensen.
In JV action the Comets won by a score of 8 – 0, with goals coming from: Tommy Thompson (one), Oscar Farestveit (two), Josue Gomezcoello (two) and Danny Franco (three).
The Comets play the Fergus Falls Otters at home on Monday at 4:00pm.
