Boys soccer: Packers beat Falcons with a PK

Published 10:18pm Tuesday, October 1, 2013

The Austin boys soccer team made a penalty kick opportunity count in a 1-0 win at Faribault (3-9 overall, 0-8 Big Nine) Tuesday.

Austin junior Roel Torres scored the lone goal of the night when he connected on a penalty kick early in the second half and Austin keeper Abraham Manzano stopped all three of the shots he saw on the night to shutout the Falcons.

The Packers (5-6-3 overall, 2-5-2 Big Nine) were called for off-sides 10 times in the match, which slowed their attack down.

“That’s not typical at all to have that many off-sides,” Austin head coach Jens Levisen said. “We probably should’ve had a PK in the first half too, but we can’t control that.”

The Packers now have four shutouts on the season and they will host Rochester John Marshall for parent’s night Thursday at 7 p.m.
