Wolverines shut out Chardon

Dave Beattie and Nick D’Allesandro both scored first-half goals to lead West Geauga to a 2-0 win at Chardon on Saturday.

The win was the fifth straight for the Wolverines, who improved to 5-1 overall.

“Another hard-fought victory against a hardworking and aggressive Chardon team but a win is a win and the Wolverines earned it,” said West Geauga coach Mario Gerhardt.

Beattie’s goal was his third of the season while D’Alessandro found the net for the fourth time this fall.

“Dave’s goal came on a quickly executed free kick in the 17th minute while Nick’s came in the 40th minute thanks to Mo Aidja’s perfect through pass,” Gerhardt said. “Keeper Sam Onderdonk with four saves earned the shutout.”

West Geauga travels to Harvey on Monday.
