Lincoln Academy boys soccer team clipped the Panthers in Medomak Valley’s Homecoming game on Sept. 15, 2-1. The two teams battled to a scoreless and physically abusive first half. The intensity continued into the second half. The Eagles took the lead on a breakaway pass from Gus Hunt to Nolen Michael 33 seconds into the period. Eagle keeper Tiger Cumming was yellow carded after he and Brandon Starr rumbled in front of the Eagles net with a little over 16 minutes to play. Cumming stopped the initial shot but lost control after Starr collided with him. Cumming dove for the rebound and in the process made contact with Starr, drawing the yellow card.
Cummings went to the bench and Edu Martin-Chico replaced him but was not able to stop a perfectly placed penalty kick from Zach Cheeseman. Will Shaffer scored the game winner for Lincoln with 5:48 to play when he broke free on a Jorge Pulido-Fernandez through ball, and one timed a shot past Panther keeper Aiden Starr.
