That’s more like it for Knight soccer

By on September 24, 2009

Other area teams have to be grimacing when they see the Kaneland Knights soccer team on the schedule.

Nicely recovered from a 1-3-1 start to the 2009 season, coach Scott Parillo’s roster has taken three matches in a row, most recently a 7-0 affair in Aurora against the host Illinois Math and Science Academy Titans on Thursday.

Marking its third win in a row, the Knights have now upped their record to 4-3-1 and have outscored their opponents by a total of 14-1 in the last 240 minutes of action.

Against the Titans, KHS scored all seven goals in the first half. Goals were had by Derek White, Alex Gil on three separate occasions, Chad Swieca, Thansi Pesmajoglou and Jordan Escobedo. Swieca had two assists, while Kevin Szatkowski added three of his own.

Coming up for the Knights in the ensuing days are another St. Charles East Invite matchup on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m., and the invite finale at the home of the Saints on Saturday, Sept. 26.
