— Leesville Road’s boys soccer team defeated Apex Friendship 4-1 at Cardinal Gibbons on Friday night to claim the Wake County Cup championship.
The victory was a first-time achievement for the school and marked the addition of a new team into the circle of Wake County Tournament champions, which includes Cardinal Gibbons, Apex and Green Hope.
Apex Friendship has never won the Wake County Cup title either. Anticipation for a new winner was evident in the stands . The event proceeded with a green light, unlike last year where regular season play was restricted to only conference games due to COVID-19.
The scoreboard was in a lull for the first 14 minutes as both teams duked it out in the midfield. The seal was broken by Abdul Querneh with an unassisted goal. He outmatched the keeper Tahseen Habash in a 1-on-1 contest.
Three minutes later, on the other side of the field, Lessville’s offense made an overzealous play—sliding into the back of a Patriots player—which created a penalty shot opportunity for Apex Friendship’s lead scorer, Tyler Moczulski. He struck the ball into the gloves of the keeper, followed up on the deflection and put in the goal.
Toward the end of the first half, Camden Dinkenor attempted a shot, but the goal was prevented by a sliding save from Habash. Leesville was unable to take a lead into the second half, keeping the score tied at 1-1.
The second half began with Apex Friendship’s back line under pressure. As the last 20 minutes approached, Leesville Road took full control of the field and put the game on ice.
A centered ball deflected off a Patriot into the chest of Dinkenor. He settled the ball and drilled a goal from 10 yards out in the 53rd minute. Soon thereafter, Dinkenor made another play at goal, which was blocked into the air, but Nick Prewo slid in the goal to make it 3-1.
Strikers continued to show off their individual skills as a pass was sent to Alex Cross who buried the fourth and final goal of the game in the 64th minute.
