Eagles Net Five in Rout of Lions

HUNTINGDON, Pa.-The Juniata men's soccer team exploded for four second-half goals as they went on to win, 5-0, over Bryn Athyn Friday evening at Gibbel Stadium.

Juniata had several opportunities throughout the first half, but the Eagles couldn't capitalize until the final minute of the half.    

Johnny King (York Springs, Pa. / Bermudian Springsplayed the ball to Logan Storti(Elverson, Pa. / Owen J. Roberts) who crossed the ball from the left wing to Michael Realbuto (Collegeville, Pa. / Methacton) and he headed it past the keeper to put the Eagles up 1-0 heading into the locker room at half. 

Two minutes into the second half, Storti played in a corner from the left side. It bounced around the box before falling to Jason Novosel, but his shot went just over the crossbar. 

In the 53rd minute, Nick Sinapius (Phoenixville, Pa. / Phoenixville) laid the ball off to Jarrod Gibson (Abington, Pa. / Abington) who's shot went wide right. 

Five minutes later, Storti played the ball from the half field line and the ball took a bounce inside the box before Gibson nodded it passed the onrushing keeper to double the Eagle lead. 

In the 81stminute, Storti again played a long, diagonal ball, this time to Samuel Preston (Oak Park, Ill. / Fenwick). He played the ball square to Bass Diakhoumpa (Dakar, Senegal / Mercersburg Academy), who was all alone in front of the goal and he slotted it him to make it 3-0. 

Five minutes later, Storti once again put the ball in from midfield and it bounced off a Bryn Athyn defender and into the net.  

In the 88th minute Wyatt Page(King of Prussia, Pa. / Shipley),dodged a few defenders prior to sending the ball into the bottom left corner of the net. 

The Eagles will return to action tomorrow, King's at 2:00.
