12U travel league
Concord FC 4, Amherst Blizzard 1
Concord got back on the winning track with an impressive win over Amherst Thursday night at their new home, the Dunkirk High School field. Anthony Piede scored a hat-trick for Concord. His impressive finishing ability gave Concord a nice 2-0 cushion at halftime and his early strike made it 3-0 early in the second half. Concord hit a total of five posts in the game. Bradon Gustafson, Naisaih Rodrigues (twice), Nathan Mays and Henry Leone all rang the post, coming so close to adding on to Concord’s tally.
Amherst scored their lone goal with about eight minutes left in the game, and Sam Pietro scored the fourth for Concord, finishing the rebound off the post from Leone as time expired. Aiden Czekanski and David Girdlestone split keeper duties and played excellent. Mason Tomaszewski had the hustle award for his play and Gavin DeLong continued his stellar defense and won many 50/50 balls out of the air for the winners.
