The MRSS Ramblers held off an early barrage from the Gleneagle Talons en route to a 2-0 win in senior boys’ AAA soccer action Tuesday at Merkley Park.

MRSS goalie Matthew Carson was called upon early to keep the game scoreless when he lunged to make a stop on an early penalty kick.

The Ramblers seemed top feed off the big save. The Ramblers pushed the play down the field and Ryan Liang scored his first goal of the season to put the team ahead 1-0. Carson made another spectacular save shortly before the end of the half, reaching backward to deflect a ball just over the crossbar after some late pressure by the Talons.

The Ramblers dictated play in the second half and salted the game away on a goal by Elijah Otwey. Defensively the team was led by standouts Andrew Thiessen, Seth Rathjen and Lorenzo Brinez.

AA Varsity

Jonas Koellmel scored both goals for the Pitt Meadow Marauders in a 2-2 draw with the Arch Bishop Carney Stars on Tuesday.

Koellmel opened the scoring in the second half on a pretty cross from Gerardo Gallegos. After Carney stormed back with two goals, the Marauders’ sniper tied it up when he pounced on a loose ball in the 78th minute.

The tie ensured the Marauders first place overall in league play with a record of four wins and two ties.  Pitt scored a league-leading 23 goals, while only giving up seven. The playoffs are set for first week of November.
