Lakeland 6 vs. Brewster 1
Monday, Oct. 7

For the second time this season, Lakeland’s Augie Karaqi scored four goals in a game, this time in a

6-1 triumph against visiting Brewster, where the Hornets led 3-0 at halftime.

After losing their last two games on the road, the Hornets were really excited to come back and have a home game under the lights at Lakeland, according to Karaqi.

“We felt as a team we were getting close but just really wanted to come out and score the first goal tonight,” Karaqi said. “And after I got the first one, we just kept going. Coach (Tim Hourahan) told us at halftime not to stop and get the next goal to kill off the game and I got a great cross to pick up the fourth goal a few minutes into the second half.”

Bryan Jaramillo (1G), Genti Gashi (1G, 1A), Sonny Karaqi (2A), Steban Minchalo (1A), Jack Tuite (1A), Antonio Gerbasi (1A) and Jason Pasato (5 saves) also earned their way into the box score for a Lakeland squad that next hosts Tuckahoe at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12.

We were trailing behind in the first set, but eventually pushed through it for the win. However in the second and third sets, Yorktown came out and truly showed us what they could do. In the fourth and fifth sets, we knew we had to play hard and consistent, which we did, and that eventually led us to this significant win.”
