Olmsted Falls High School
Lemins Late Goal Lifts Dogs Past Avon 1-0
Senior Kevin Lemin popped in a left footer late in regulation off a sparkling pass from Senior Danny Cleary to grab a critical early SWC victory 1-0 against a talented Avon squad.
A large crowd of Bulldog faithful watched nervously as the Avon Eagles turned aside many offensive attacks from the Bulldogs, led by Senior Ryan Kolonick. Kolonick sent several high quality crosses into the mixer that came up empty.
The Bulldog defense, led by Senior Chase Fernkorn, Senior Joe Bement, and Junior Alex Klek, played its usual brickwall style, allowing only 6 shots on goal. Senior Shelby Edwards weathered a collison with an Avon player to make 4 saves and post his 2nd clean slate of the season.
The Bulldogs used fast breaks and counters to keep senior GK Dylan Morris and his backline on high alert most of the evening. The game was played on a beautiful night for soccer; after three straight fast breaks, the Dogs finally found joy when senior Danny Cleary zipped a pass over Kevin Lemin who banged a left footer past Morris for the only score the Dogs needed.
The Bulldogs met the first SWC challenge but have little time to enjoy as the Westlake Demons host the Dogs this Saturday night 7pm in a surefire SWC dogfight
Lets get a record breaking crowd of Bulldog Nation followers out to Westlake and support our SWC champion Bulldogs!
