Livingston Boys' Soccer Team Ties MKA, 2-2

October 3, 2013 at 1:26 PM

UPPER MONTCLAIR, NJ – The Livingston boys’ soccer team played away at Montclair Kimberley Academy (MKA) on Oct. 2.  After a full game plus two overtime rounds, the contest ended in a 2-2 tie.

“When all is said and done, walking out 2-2 here, this place is a tough place to win. They’ve (MKA) only lost a few times in the past few years here. I thought we had a good chance to win but we didn’t finish the opportunities,” said Livingston coach Roger Rubinetti.

Ben Neyer scored both goals for Livingston and Garrett Meinhardt saved about three goals that could have easily gone into the net.

“I just wanted to help out the team in the beginning and I got a couple of fast breaks and scored a couple times but it was the defense that really played their hearts out – Garrett made some incredible saves,” said Neyer.

“I thought we could have had a couple of more (goals) today but overall we just played a really hard game, defense hung in there, blocked a few shots and just really held us in the game,” said Garrett.

MKA opened up the scoring 5:00 in with a ball down the right hand side which was put across on to the six yard line, 1-0.

Livingston counter attacked shortly after. Jack Wasserman played a diagonal ball over the top to Neyer who went in to score, 1-1.  Neyer scored again to make the score 2-1 by the end of the first half.

In the last 30:00 MKA’s Malcolm Dixon crossed the ball into the middle setting up his teammate to score, 2-2.

The last 25:00 of the game MKA was on the attack and had control of the ball and majority possession.  Livingston showed tenaciousness and good goal keeping.

“They had the better play I think in the second half for about the first 25 minutes or so, they had more opportunities,” explained Rubinetti.

The game traveled into two 10:00 over time sessions, but in the end the score was left 2-2.

“MKA is a very good team,” said Rubinetti. “Number 10 (Malcolm Dixon) came from the U.S. Residency in Florida from the National Team program. He’s probably one of the best players in state, and #8 (Wesley Wade) is basically of the same caliber.” 

“Those two kids are very difficult to defend – they got some points off of us, as they probably should have, as they are sensational players.  But our kids held their own. We started 1-2-1 and now we are 4-2-2 so that puts us undefeated about four games.  We are playing well. We earned the #3 seat in the Essex County Tournament the other night so we have a bye and don’t play again until around Oct. 12.”

Livingston will sit tight for the next few weeks waiting to find out their next challenger in the tournament.  Orange will have a play in game against West Side, the winner will play Nutley and the winner of the Nutley play in game will play Livingston at home at a date to be determined.
