Baltimore Sun Sunday - - SPORTS - By Tom Worgo

The sea­son was mov­ing along quite nicely for the Ger­stell boys soc­cer team un­til Lib­erty de­railed it Satur­day.

Lib­erty ended Ger­stell’s three-game win­ning streak with a 4-3 vic­tory over the host Fal­cons.

The Li­ons (2-2) made it clear they were eager for a tri­umph.

“It’s our first reg­u­lar-sea­son win,” said Lib­erty coach Dave Abar­banel, not­ing his 2-2 team beat Ur­bana and lost to Tus­caraora in the River Hill tour­na­ment Sept. 9 while also los­ing to Mar­riotts Ridge. “It’s good to build con­fi­dence and mo­men­tum. We have a game Mon­day against Thomas John­son and we open county play Tues­day against Win­ters Mill at home.”

Lib­erty se­nior for­ward and cap­tain Carter Mun­son keyed the win with two goals over Ger­stell, a team that beat St. Mary’s of An­napo­lis Fri­day night.

Mun­son notched what proved to be the game-win­ner with 23:21 re­main­ing in the se­cond half.

“He al­most scored an amaz­ing third goal, too, that hit the cross­bar,” Abar­banel said of Mun­son’s shot late in the se­cond half. “He might not be the most tech­ni­cal player, but he is a very tal­ented player and he has an in­nate abil­ity to re­ally out­work his op­po­nents.”

Abar­banel and Ger­stell coach Ash­ley Mur­phy also have a lot of re­spect for an­other player, se­nior Nate Dresin, who scored two goals.

Dresin now has six goals and eight as­sists in six games.

“He is a fan­tas­tic soc­cer Mur­phy said. player,”
