SOUTH CHINA — Holden McKenney and Andrew Perry each scored goals to lead the Erskine boys soccer team to a 2-0 victory over Gardiner in a season-opening match Friday afternoon.
“We could not have asked for a better result for our first game of the season,” Carrie Larrabee said. “It was a pretty evenly matched game. Our bench was a huge asset to us in the game. It helped us really win those 50-50 balls. The depth in our bench helped us.”
McKenney, a sophomore, opened the scoring a little more than five minutes into the game.
Perry, also a sophomore, capped the scoring off an assist from Sam Boynton with 13:50 remaining in the game.
Timber Parlin had five saves to earn the shutout while Gardiner goalie Sean Doyle recorded two saves.
