The Yorktown Boys JV soccer team topped off their season with a home win against Muncie Burris on Thursday night (October 1) winning 4-1. Yorktown came out strong and immediately sought to break through the Owls’ defense. In the 16th minute of play, Zach Wright streamed down the left flank and slotted a pass to center of the box where Riley Marvin poked home the first goal of the match (1-0).

With only 3 seconds left on the clock in the first half, Ivan Martinez played a beautiful ball to Brad Jenkins who scored his second (and Yorktown’s final) goal of the game. The Tigers went into halftime with a 4-0 lead and fought hard to secure the win in the 2nd half. Ethan Merkle made a crucial clearance off the goal line in the 2nd half to protect a hopeful clean sheet for the Tigers.
