Lions won their first home game of the season on Tuesday. It was a back and forth battle the whole game. Gabino Barrera scored his first goal in a LNHS jersey on a great pass by Hannes Snorrason, Oak Ridge answered and at the half it was tied 1-1. Barrera scored his second goal in the second half on an amazing team effort lead by Augie Martinez, Tim Fusser, Brandon Rivera, and Dominick Jenkins. Oak Ridge scored bringing the game level at 2, but Christian Mendez scored a great goal on a cross by Andres Pardo. Oak Ridge tied the score again at 3-3 but with under 10 minutes to play, Andres Pardo was fouled in the box, drawing penalty kick, which was scored by Hannes Snorrason. The Lions played great team soccer, with amazing team and individual efforts across the field. It was a great start to the season. Next game for the boys is Thursday night, as they host University.
