Mt. Hebron boys win first game vs. Hawks since 2009
No. 14 NDP tops No. 7 Grizzlies in field hockey, 4-2
Johnny Linsenmeyer scored off a feed from Michael Yacynych in the second half, providing the lone goal in a 1-0 soccer win for No. 3 Mount Hebron over host River Hill on Thursday.
The victory marked the Vikings’ first win over the Hawks since 2009.
“We don’t like to overly emphasize one particular game, but given the circumstances — us coming off the loss to a good Reservoir team — it was great to get a result and particularly against these guys,” said interim head coach Garrett Nickles, who was filling in for Mike Linsenmeyer. “It’s always a battle with River Hill.”
Mount Hebron improved to 1-1 in county play and 3-1 overall, while River Hill slipped to 0-2 and 1-4. Hawks coach Matt Shagogue said afterward that he is trying to keep his guys positive after a disappointing outcome.
“I thought defensively today we did pretty well; it was just one lapse,” he said. River Hill’s James Carter, right, and Mount Hebron’s Justin Kweon collide as they both try to head the ball.
