Falcons soar past Calvert
Anthony Traxler made 20 saves in goal for Calvert, but he couldn’t stop them all. Riverdale’s Justin Riegel was able to get two across the line. Jackson Hankins and Chad Pever each added a goal in a 4-0 Falcon victory, dropping the Senecas to 0-2 on the year.
Calvert coach Mike Fabrizio though was happy with the improved performance of his team compared to their opener.
“This was a much more competitive game,” Fabrizio said. “Our kids gave us some great effort. There was good effort in the midfield by Mike Bennett and Jack Burtis. Ammon Best up front got a few shots off for us. We just couldn’t find the back of the net. It was a great effort by our squad. We’re improving.”
