Macias leads West Noble over Lakeland in soccer action


Uriel Macias showed why he is one of the top boys soccer players in northeast Indiana Tuesday night in leading his West Noble squad to a 5-2 victory over host Lakeland.

The Charger senior tallied four goals in the win, the first coming just three minutes into the match. After the Lakers took a 2-1 lead on markers by Sammy Garcia (eighth minute) and Eduardo Luna (11th minute), Macias countered with tallies in the 22nd and 27th minutes to put West Noble back in front, 3-2.

Macias struck again 12 minutes into the second half, extending the Charger lead to 4-2. Freshman Uriel A. Macias capped the scoring with a goal in the 72nd minute.

Alejandro Flores, Ivan Ramirez, Abel Zamarripa, Chris Najera and Ricardo Resendiz each earned assists on the West Noble goals. Nick Byler got a helper on Garcia’s tally.

West Noble keepers Joeuany Reyes and Jonathan Moreno combined to make 12 saves. Laker goalie Marco Olivares stopped 10 shots.

The result improved West Noble to 4-0-1 on the season and dropped Lakeland to 1-4.
