Livingston Boys Soccer Ties West Orange, 1-1

September 27, 2013 at 9:57 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Lancers boys’ soccer team hosted the West Orange Mountaineers on Thursday, Sept. 26, and the two teams scored a goal apiece, to result in a 1-1 draw.

Livingston started out playing on the defensive side early in the match, but both teams ended up getting their fair share of chances early on. In the 12th minute, Lancers junior Robbie April missed a good chance on goal. Only four minutes later, a Cole Charney corner kick couldn’t be headed into the goal. The Lancers began to gain some momentum, but West Orange countered back, with a few good chances, then sophomore goalie Garrett Meinhardt made a tremendous save in traffic to keep the score 0-0.

The first half ended scoreless for both sides, but West Orange opened the half with a great shot that sailed over the crossbar. Both teams continued to fail to reach the back of the net, and Lancers head coach Roger Rubinetti said his team couldn’t “connect passes.”

West Orange applied pressure throughout the game, which made connecting these passes difficult for the Lancers. In the 74th minute, the Mountaineers finally broke the scoreless tie with a goal resulting from a throw-in sent into the box.

The Lancers fell behind, but didn’t sulk about it. Although looking flat for the first 74 minutes, the team applied constant pressure during the next two. They re-tied the game thanks to a marvelous goal from junior Jesse Levitt from well outside the box.

“Where were those scoring opportunities the first 74 minutes?” said Rubinetti.

The game ended up going into overtime, where each team had a good chance to score, but failed.

“The main thing is that we came back to tie the game. That was good. I was happy with the defending but we need to work on possession, so we’ll iron out our mistakes in practice,” said Rubinetti.

Goalie Garrett Meinhardt said, “Today was a strong game overall considering the physical play and two starters hurt. We will take this into Saturday’s game as a positive from the comeback, but we will definitely look to put a few more in the back of the net.” The Lancers next game will be home to Hudson Catholic this Saturday, Sept. 28.
