Kingsford picks up road victory

PESHTIGO, Wis. - Kingsford scored three second half goals and knocked off Peshtigo 4-1 in boys soccer here Thursday.

"Peshtigo is a very hard place to go and play," Flivvers coach Alex Milinski said. "The field is very short and very narrow."

The Flivvers needed almost the entire first half to adjust to the smaller field.

"As soon as you play a through ball in, the keeper is scooping it up and punting it almost the full length of the field," Milinski said.

Kingsford took a 1-0 lead in the game's first 10 minutes when Austin Person got a touch around the goalkeeper and Taylor Wickman tucked it into the empty net.

Peshtigo answered about 15 minutes later on a quick counter, and the teams went into the half deadlocked.

But Tyler Metras set the tone early in the second half for Kingsford when he pressed up the field and buried a shot into the upper left corner from about 30 yards out.

"It was a perfectly-placed shot across frame in to the upper left corner," Milinski said.

Flivvers kept the momentum going with a goal in the 65th minute when Brett Milinski drove another shot from about 30 yards out over the keeper that dipped in just under the crossbar.

Later, Geno Bianco made a brilliant run through the middle, faked a shot and dropped a pass off to Brett Milinski, who settled the ball just inside the 18 and buried the it through the upper right corner.

"We really struggled with the field size, but were eventually able to settle in to the game," Milinski said.

Flivvers play at the Lakeland Invite Saturday.
