Marquette, MI  –  September 12, 2020  –  The Marquette boys varsity soccer team traveled to Houghton Saturday for a wet and rainy game. Marquette had several chances early and finally got on the board with a Connor Johnson (senior) goal which was assisted by junior Axel Vermaat at the 10 minute mark. A few minutes later, senior Lewis Goff converted a penalty kick for a 2-0 lead. Sophomore Max Dawson made it 3-0 off a Brett Wittler (senior) pass. Just before halftime junior Nick Lindberg blasted in an unassisted goal from 18 yards out.Marquette Redmen

Marquette would add two second half goals to win the game 6-0. Those goals came from Johnson and junior Harrison Anthos; Johnson’s goal was assisted by Vermaat again while the Anthos goal was unassisted. Senior Liam Jeevar faced 3 shots in net.

“We were missing some key players today out with injuries and ended up losing 3 more during the game. The rest of the team rose to the occasion and took on longer shifts. Johnson really stepped it up and our defense is now riding a 4 game shut out streak. Very proud of these guys.” – coach Dan Salmon.

Marquette now stands at 4 wins 0 losses and 1 tie on the year outscoring the last four opponents 26-0. Marquette hosts Kingsford Thursday night.
