The Austin boys soccer team had another tough match on their slate, but this time they pulled through with a 2-0 win at Winona Thursday.

The Packers (2-2 overall, 1-2 Big Nine) got on the board nine minutes into the game when Alex Klock fired in a cross from Martin Mannochio and they added their second goal when Rolando Rubio knocked in a cross from Jacob Brehmer nine minutes into the second half.

“We’ve had three tough games in a row and to shutout Winona on the road is a good thing,” Austin head coach Jens Levisen said. “It’s not like we needed to change what we where doing, we just had to keep doing it and do it better.”
