Friday’s Prep Soccer: United Edges King’s Way Christian
By The Chronicle
VANCOUVER — Jonathan Van Vleck scored the only goal in the 63rd minute, leading United earn a 1-0 win over King’s Way Christian here in a 1A Trico League boys soccer game on Friday.
Van Vleck’s goal was assisted by Isaac Garibay, who set Van Vleck up in a 1-on-1 situation with the keeper and was able to find twine for the goal.
Alan Contreras picked up another clean sheet for his fourth straight league shutout. United has outscored its league opponents 14-0 in those four Trico games.
“It was good. It’s a tough place, playing on that big turf field,” United coach Horst Malunat said. “It was a good effort as a team. I’m glad we made it and have all the points we wanted going into the break.”
Malunat complimented his defense — Dawson Hall, David Van Vleck, Brian Wood and Brandon Cruz — for their work on the back line.
United (6-1, 4-0) hosts Castle Rock on Tuesday, April 11, in Winlock in another Trico matchup.
