The Laconia High School boys' soccer team defeated White Mountains 2-0 on Wednesday, extending its winning streak to six games. Laconia did all of its damage in the first half, Aidan Dean scored first on an assist from Brayden Harriman, followed by Jake Sykes assisted by Brady Caldwell.
The game was a high intensity match from start to finish with both keepers making key saves to keep their teams in it. Dean netted the first goal after a long service in off a dead ball scooted through, slipping it past the keeper. The second goal came after a determined Caldwell drove the line and played a ball back towards the 18 for a waiting Jake Sykes to finish the well-played pass. Play continued throughout the match with White Mountains adding more and more pressure as the game went on. Laconia did well to handle the pressure and fend off the continual bombardment.
Goalkeeper Panthavy Pradachith recorded 4 saves for Laconia, while Josh Greenwood stopped 6 for White Mountains.
