SUMMIT, NJ - With copious amounts of soccer real estate to work with, it was but a matter of time when the breakthrough would come for the Summit High School Boys Varsity Soccer Team against Ridge at Tatlock Park. And, the first goal came, hen a second. Soon a third would be finding the back of the net and the Hilltoppers, now 5-3 on the season, would stroll to their third win on the trot, beating the visitors, 3-nil.

While it took Summit some time to truly break down a team that sat back and allowed the Maroon and White to attack, that interval paled in comparison to perhaps pondering the perplexing dilemma of the day, namely why does a team named the Red Devils wears green and white?

While some questions go begging, Summit response to Ridge, in soccer parlance, pretty much 'parking the bus' by deploying up to six defenders was to shift into a higher gear after halftime, playing quicker and taking advantage of a defensive-oriented, but relatively stagnant opponent.

Delmar Argenal continued to bring his shooting boots to Tatlock Park, scoring twice for the second time in as many matches. His first came in the 21st minute, running onto a ball in the right side of the penalty area and then lashing a shot that the Ridge goalkeeper Jason Clingensmith got his glove on but could not keep out of the goal.

His second came in the 57th minute when junior Luc Curragh perfectly threaded the needle and sent the senior in alone on goal. He rounded Clingensmith with ease to his left and then cooly rolled the ball into the open goal.

The Pièce De Résistance came less than two minutes later courtesy of some Yeoman's work by Cole Schneider, the right back pressed forward and winning a scrappy battle along the right touchline, then squaring the ball across the top of the penalty area where Michael Greenstein was waiting. The senior captain's short backswing sent the ball screaming into the right Upper 90 and it was 3-nil.

James Ford was truly tested on only one occasion on the day, late on, when he made back-to-back stops with his gloves to preserve the clean sheet.

Summit next takes on Linden at Tatlock Park October 3. The match kicks off at 4 p.m.
