CLARK, NJ - The Arthur L. Johnson Boys Soccer team played hard to shut out Governor Livingston in first round play of the Union County tournament Saturday at home. The final score was 2-0.

Juan Vargas scored both goals for the Crusaders, putting the first past GL goalie Jake Topor with 4:12 left in the first half.  A quick drive to open the second half of the game resulted in Vargas' second goal, just seconds in at 39:26.  Liam Deacy and Mike Pieros earned assists for the goals.
Despite a hard press to get on the board in the second half, GL failed to put one past Crusader goalie Josh Geller. Geller had eight saves in the game. 

Union County Tournament play continues next Saturday when Johnson will travel to Scotch Plains-Fanwood for the the Quarterfinal round.
