Utilizing its speed and passing ability, the Lansing boys’ soccer team carved up Bonner Springs Monday night.
Jimmy Bormolini put together a three-goal performance while goalkeeper Briscoe Elliott and the Lions’ defense kept its host scoreless during a 4-0 win.
“Even going against a strong wind, we were able to have several breakaways on their goal,” Lansing coach Randy Brown said. “We were putting some passes together and doing the right thing with the ball.”
The Lions wasted little time when in the 10th minute, Jimmy Bormolini finished a breakaway to give the visitors a 1-0 advantage. Twenty-four minutes later, Bormolini found Joe Henry in front of the Chieftains’ net, who buried a clean strike.
After halftime, Bormolini capitalized on another breakaway in the 52nd minute. Eight minutes later, off a pass from Henry, Bormolini captured the hat trick with his third score of the evening.
Lansing, 4-2, 2-0 in conference, will host Bishop Ward tonight at 6 p.m.
