RUTHERFORD, NJ - Pre-season, Hasbrouck Heights coach Bill Thorne was convinced that he had the balanced scoring attack to contend for the NJIC Meadowlands once again. Through two games, it looks like he is correct.

Six players scored goals for the Aviators, as they defeated St. Mary, 6-1, in NJIC Meadowlands league play. 

Senior defender Michael Gerges had a goal and two assists to lead the Aviators offense.  Sophomore midfielder Michael Caceres and senior midfielder Victor Barris each had a goal and an assist, while Alex Escalante, Mario Gomez and Rafel Mendoza each chipped in goals.
