By Pete Palen
The Margaretville Magic improved their record to 4-0 in The Mine Kill Adult Soccer League last Monday night with a 13-4 victory over Clark’s of Gilboa.
Margaretville got on the scoreboard early and often. The first tally featured a brotherly collaboration as Max Mead slid a through pass to his brother, and former MCS and Cortland State star, Mitch, who fired a shot from the top of the penalty area past the diving Clark’s goalkeeper. A few minutes later, Ryan Pesa headed home an Alex Throssel cross to make the score 2-0. Two more goals by Mitch Mead, one by current MCS Blue Devil stalwart, Josh Smith, and one by Alex Throssell increased the Magic’s halftime lead to 6-1.
