Summit Boys Soccer Team Shuts Out Union Catholic 2-0


SUMMIT, NJ – The Summit Hilltoppers cruised to a 2-0 victory over Union Catholic on Thursday with the assistance of senior Manuel Navas and sophomore Scott Caputo, who both netted scores before halftime.

Summit maintained possession and kept the offensive pressure in the Union Catholic zone early in the game. Summit’s first goal came of off a nice, lofted ball sent into the opposition’s box by Navas.

Navas spoke of his goal, made with the assistance of teammate Peter Laughlin. “I knew as soon as the ball was sent [to me] that I was dangerous in the middle,” Navas said. “I just keep my composure. As soon as I saw the ball I went for it and just scored.”

With time expiring in the first half, Caputo footed a ball from midfield and moved toward the Union Catholic goal. The ball took a high bounce over Union Catholic goalie Mike Gonzalez and into the net just seconds before the the halftime whistle.

“I thought we came out with good intensity. We had great tempo,” Summit Head Coach Chris Yager said. “We dictated the pace. [On offense] we just moved the ball and got everyone involved.”

During the second half, Summit continued to control play and defenders cleared any chance Union Catholic had to score.

Goaltender Josh Rosen removed all balls that passed his defenders from the box. So far in the season’s three regular games, only one goal has made it past Rosen.

“I think the units are playing pretty well. They are having fun,” Coach Yager commented about his defense. “We’re trying to rotate some players so they find some confidence and give us a lift from the back going forward.”

Summit remains undefeated 3-0. Their next test comes against Ferris High School this Saturday at 10 a.m. at Summit High School.
