The freshman defender headed in the rebound of a Russell Oost-Lievense free kick, helping the Wreckers up their season record to 3-0-0.  They host St. Joseph on Wednesday (4 p.m.) at Loeffler Field, behind Staples.

Stellar defense by Lesch, Mike Smith, Frankie Bergonzi, Alex Gendell, Jackson Lesser and Jack Hennessy—along with strong combination play all over the field—keyed the victory.

“I’ll take 1-0 against a strong Ludlowe squad over a 5-4 win any day,” said head coach Dan Woog. “Every day we’re taking big strides, and every day our guys believe a little more in themselves.”
