The Cedar Crest boys’ soccer team is planning a big move. It’s not just seeking to turning things around, it wants to do it in an impactful way.
The Falcons expect Gio Mancino to play a huge role in their plans.
On Monday at home, Cedar Crest began a hope-filled fall campaign with an impressive 6-0 victory over rival Lebanon. For his part, Mancino was in the middle of all that went right for the Falcons.
The junior forward tallied a pair of goals and added an assist, as Cedar Crest got off to a solid start before pulling away from the Cedars late.
Mancino netted the all-important first goal of the game – and season – 12 minutes into the contest when he out maneuvered the Lebanon keeper for a loose ball. Then 12 minutes into the second half, Mancino put the Falcons up 3-0, with his left foot, high to the short side.
With his left foot, Mancino also set up teammate Jozef Shireli’s successful header and CC’s fourth goal.
Later in the week, Mancino added assists in Cedar Crest’s road loss at Cocalico and the Falcons’ home setback to Palmyra.
