Harvey edges Kenston

BAINBRIDGE—Harvey scored two late goals and then held off host Kenston in a nonconference matchup on Thursday, 2-1.

With the win, the Red Raiders improved to 9-1-1 on the year.

“It was a great game, back and forth, great pressure, high intensity, obviously, both sides played great, for most of the game,” said Harvey coach Natalie Sisler. “We just kept pushing, kept pushing, we kept telling our guys it was there, it was there, kept knocking on the door at times, went back and forth a lot, but then we finally got the one we needed.”

After a scoreless first half, the Red Raiders took a 1-0 lead when Marcos Perez buried his sixth goal of the season into the back of the net with 12:57 remaining in the game.

“It was a very hard game,” Perez said. “I feel like we had the better team.”

The Red Raiders added a much-needed insurance goal five minutes later when Kevin Fonseca finished with his left foot.

The goal was the 14th of the season for Fonseca.

“I saw the chance, I took it, and gave it (my) all, power shot,” Fonseca said.

Kenston scored a minute later to cut its deficit in half but the Red Raiders held off the Bombers for the final seven minutes to seal their win.

Harvey hosts West Geauga on Tuesday.
