Two years after being Sandusky Bay Conference Bay Division co-champions in boys soccer, the Chargers rolled to a 5-0 win over Oak Harbor on Monday to secure the outright crown.
“We tied in 2017 with Huron, but this one, we knew tonight was a winner-take-all game and now we finally can say we have the division title all by ourselves,” Edison coach Kurri Lewis said. “I have a lot of seniors on this team and we’ve been working hard since the summer to reach our goals.”
The Chargers (10-1-2, 8-1-1) scored four times in the first half to gain control of the contest.
Kaleb Yoder opened the scoring off an assist from Ian Janssen, with Jamie DeLeon scoring off a pass from Jacob Lombardi.
DeLeon assisted a goal from Miguel Echevarria that made it 3-0 with Lombardi getting his second assist on a goal from Conner Rommell.
In the second half, Janssen assisted Conner Rommell for the last goal of the game
“We have a lot of speed on this team and we’re very good at moving the ball,” Lewis said. “We started the first five to 10 minutes slowly, but we clicked from there. We knew if we could put the petal down, good things would come.”
Travin Baughman turned back all six shots on goal that he faced.
