The Standard Journal - - LOCAL SPORTS - From staff re­ports

Team ef­fort and some help from younger play­ers pro­vided the Rome boys’ soc­cer team with a clutch 3-1 win on the road Fri­day night against Re­gion 7-5A foe Kell.

Ed­uardo Zavala fin­ished with goals for the Wolves, while Rhadriq Turner had one, and Henry Ramirez and Andreas Surdh both recorded an as­sist.

Keeper Grant Cham­bers had six saves, and help in the mid­field came from Car­los Jimenez, Cooper Wil­liams, Cade Graham, Lu­ciano Hasko, Ser­gio Vazquez, Mutsa Nyu­maranga and Cris­tian Fon­seca.

“I was ex­tremely proud of the ef­fort of the younger play­ers step­ping up tonight. I think in the long run it will give us much needed depth,” Rome coach Chris Cochran said, ad­ding that they had five starters in­jured.

Rome fresh­man Mae Pierce once again stepped up for the Lady Wolves’ soc­cer team Fri­day evening, scor­ing all three Rome goals in a 3-1 de­feat of Kell on the road.

The win en­sures Rome (8-6-2, 7-1 7-5A) will fin­ish the reg­u­lar sea­son no lower than sec­ond in the Re­gion 7-5A stand­ings.
