H.S. Highlights: Shalom Christian posts pair of shutouts
Shalom Academy's boys soccer team came out of the gates on fire.
The Flames captured a 5-0 victory over Calvary on Monday night in Mason-Dixon Christian Conference action. They were led by Jonah Stains' hat trick, and Peter Livermore added a goal and an assist.
Travis West and Micah Lehman split time in goal, needed only two saves apiece to preserve the shutout.
"Our defense did an excellent job tonight, especially the back four of Mikey (White), Nathan (Schaffer), Zach (Edwards) and Jacob (Nicholas)," Shalom coach Chris Lehman said. "They won so many balls and then distributed well, and we really built our possession from the back all the way up to the front. Continuing from last Friday night, Jonah and Peter again had some outstanding finishes."
White also had a goal for the Flames (2-0, 2-0 MDCC).
