Lakers Win on Penalty Kick

CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. – The Finger Lakes Community College Men’s Soccer team won against Roberts Wesleyan College JV this past Saturday. The Lakers won 1-0 on a penalty kick goal.

The second half was where the Lakers finally pushed ahead. A Redhawk defender had a handball in the box 14:28 in the first half. This gave the Lakers a penalty shot. Derek McArthur took the shot, and scored. This was McArthur’s second goal of the season. Later on in the second half, FLCC’s Valentino Cole had a shot to make the game 2-0. Redhawk goalie, Michael Mingo, came out of the goal and Cole shot and hit the post.

Game leaders for the Lakers were McArthur with one goal, Felipe Gonzalez with 7 shots, and Noah Fisher with 6 shots.

The Lakers play next at home on Wednesday, September 13. They will face Mohawk Valley Community College. The game will start at 5:00pm after the women’s game.
