Wolverines come back to boot Frewsburg, 2-1

WESTFIELD — The Westfield Wolverines (4-3, 3-0) staged a comeback to beat Frewsburg, 2-1, in CCAA Central boys soccer action Wednesday.

Garrett Swanson put the Bears (1-5, 1-2) on the board 6:40 into the game. But Jason Almeter tied the game just 20 seconds later, assisted by David Skinner.

The winning goal was a family affair, as Tim Skinner — David’s brother — scored off a pass from his sibling at the 20-minute mark.

“Both teams had opportunities,” Wolverines coach Jay Pikiewicz said. “Dylan Scriven and Jimmy Wolfe played well on our defense, and Nathan Culbreth had a lot of nice free kicks on restarts which helped us throughout the game.”

Mike Johnson made two saves for Westfield. “He’s a first-year player who has really grown into the keeper position, “ Pikiewicz said.

Hayden Edwards made 16 saves for Frewsburg.

Westfield returns to action Saturday when it hosts Southwestern in the annual Kevin White Memorial Game, named for a Westfield native and former Wolverines soccer player who died fighting for his country.
