The Strongsville Mustangs Boys Varsity Soccer Team came from behind to eke out a 3-2 win over the Solon Comets on Tuesday night @ Stewart Field in Solon. The Mustangs opened their account in the 7th minute when SR Jack Canonico slipped a nice pass to SR Michael Neumann w/ Neumann racing past a defender and slotting the ball past the Comet keeper. Solon would equalize before the break and it would remain knotted at one apiece going in to the 2nd half. Solon would strike first to take a 2-1 advantage but the Mustangs would not be stopped on the night. A Solon hand ball in the 63rd minute resulted in a penalty and SR Michael Tusick stepped up to take the spot kick with his PK equalizing for the Mustangs. Strongsville would continue to apply the pressure and they were rewarded just five minutes later on a text book counter with Neumann finding Tusick splitting the two central defenders and slotting by the Solon keeper for the game winner. JR GK Mason Kaiser made five saves on the night. The Mustangs are now 7-1-1 overall and 2-0-1 in the GCC.
