WHS, GHS tie 1-1 in tight American soccer race


GOSHEN — The standings remain tight atop the SBAAC American Division boys soccer loop.

Wilmington and Goshen battled to a 1-1 draw Tuesday at Jim Brown Stadium.

“We always want to win but this wasa decent result for us on the road,” WHS coach Imad El-Macharrafie said. “Goals are at a premium this year in the SBAAC and Goshen has a great goalkeeper.”

Both teams are 2-0-2 in American competition. Batavia is first at 3-0-1.

The Hurricane is 4-1-3 overall while the Warriors go to 4-0-2.

Javier Becerril had the only WHS goal with Caleb Macias recording an assist.

Tanner Newberry scored for Goshen.

Cole Bernhardt was in goal for Wilmington.

“We had a couple of chances to score late but just couldn’t quite get it done,” El-Macharrafie said. “Trevor Billingsley had a great game offensively and created opportunities for us all night.”
