North Medford boys shut out Roseburg, 2-0
ROSEBURG — Danny Zamores had a hand in both goals as North Medford ended a three-game winless streak with a 2-0 victory against Roseburg in Southwest Conference boys soccer Tuesday.
Zamores, North’s senior captain, broke a scoreless tie midway through the second half by booting a free kick into the upper shelf of the net from about 23 yards out.
“Danny struck it solid and on frame,” said North Medford coach Michael Belzberg. “It was hit with so much pace their keeper never got a hand on it.”
About five minutes later Zamores combined with Manny Mejia on a give-and-go for North’s second goal. The play developed at the top of the box when Mejia found Zamores, who returned a pass that the junior midfielder converted from close range.
Eric Benitez recorded the shutout in net for North Medford (6-5-1, 4-3-1 SWC).
“He did a great job coming off his line,” said Belzberg about his junior goalie. “He only had a couple of saves but took away any breakaways.”
North’s Carter Ehlers played solid defense against Roseburg (0-9-3, 0-6-2).
EAGLE POINT 3, CRATER 0: At Central Point, Tyler Wanamaker scored two goals and Sebastian Tovar had one goal and one assist to lead Eagle Point to the Midwestern League victory at Dutch Meyer Field.
Tovar scored on an indirect kick in the 25th minute from 24 yards out, and the Eagles (7-3-1, 1-2 MWL) took a 2-0 lead four minutes later when Wanamaker scored off a through ball by Gerardo Lopez.
Wanamaker also scored in the 66th minute against Crater (1-9, 0-4) on a header following Tovar’s crossing pass. Jonel Quintero earned the shutout in goal.
CRATER 1, EAGLE POINT 1: At Eagle Point, Krystal Van Dyke scored on a penalty kick early in the second half to tie it for Eagle Point and neither team could negotiate a goal despite two competitive 10-minute overtime periods at Eagle Stadium.
Julie Walruff scored in the first half to give Crater (4-6-1, 1-2-1 MWL) the lead after taking control of a crossing pass by Sydney Beck.
Alycea Jones made seven saves for the Comets, while Lupe Partida had 10 saves for the Eagles (3-6-2, 0-2-1).
