With just about two weeks into the season, teams have established which players on their team have the ability to score goals. When that number of players goes beyond three, you can count on your team competing in every game that team steps onto the field. The Eagles from Winslow Township, traveling to Triton to take on the Mustangs, were looking to pick up their fourth win in a row. During the first half of this Olympic Conference Patriot Division boys' soccer game, neither team was able to score. Mike Regan changed that during he second half scoring twice for the Eagles and his success on this day was enough to defeat Triton by a 2-1 margin.
After Regan scored the first goal of the game early during the second half, the Mustangs continued to keep the offensive pressure. Winslow would get the advantage midway through the half and it was Regan again pushing the Eagles’ advantage to 2-0. Triton would respond cutting their deficit in half when Johnson scored. That goal seems to pick up the momentum for the Mustangs as they put themselves into position to score. But luck was not on their side as each opportunity either hit the crossbar or sailed just over the net. With the win, Winslow Township increased their record to 5-2 to lead their division.
