Skinner nets game-winner for Wolves

OBSERVER?Staff Report

BROCTON – Dan Skinner scored the game-winning goal 51 minutes into the game to give the Westfield-Brocton Wolverines a 1-0 victory over the Silver Creek-Forestville Black Knights on Monday in CCAA non-league boys high school soccer.

After a scrum in front of the net, Westfield-Brocton’s Chris Cockram used his head to send a ball Skinner’s way. Skinner settled the ball and put it home for what proved to be the game-winning goal.

“Silver Creek-Forestville played a great game,” Westfield-Brocton coach Jay Pikiewicz said. “They controlled much of the first half. We luckily had a few breaks in the second half and we put one in.”

Ty Bentham was the winning goalie with five saves.

Westfield-Brocton returns to action Wednesday at Southwestern.
