MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets soccer team had to fight to get back on the winning track.
The Jackets (5-3-1) had very few opportunities, but they didn’t give too many opportunities, either. Mount Vernon managed to capitalize on a pair of goals from Alex Glibert to defeat a pesky Newark team, 2-0, in nonconference action at Yellow Jacket Stadium.
Mount Vernon, which had only five shots on goal, controlled the ball in the middle for most of the game.
“I wanted to see our guys work from the middle of the field to the attacking third,” said Mount Vernon coach Scott Dapprich. “I got to see more of that tonight. We didn’t have as many scoring opportunities as we would like, but I was pleased that we were going where we needed to go as a team.”
The defense played lights out and goalkeeper Kyle Dunnavant tallied six saves in the shutout.
