Zaccaria's goal lifts Ken East over NT

Tonawanda News — Lorenzo Zaccaria scored twice, including the game-winner, as Kenmore East edged North Tonawanda, 4-3 in Niagara Frontier League soccer action Wednesday afternoon.

Zaccaria’s first tally gave East a 3-1 lead with 14:24 left to play. The second, coming with 12:02 to play, gave East a 4-2 lead.

“I played a different position today,” Zaccaria said. “I played back a little more and it seemed to work for us.”

But the Jacks didn’t go down without a fight as Grayson Dolata answered back with two goals of his own. The second trimmed the Bulldogs lead to 4-3 with 7:23, but that’s as close as the Jacks would get.

Bulldogs coach Rolfe Friedenberg was happy with his squad’s effort.

“We make the point all the time that I don’t care how much talent you have if you’re not busting your butt and working hard,” he said. “In the second half it seems like they had more of a fire under the butts to want to play.”

For the Jacks (2-7 NFL, 2-9) it’s another hard fought, one goal loss. And another night where they are left shaking their heads wondering what must they do to win close games.

“I feel like, not this game so much, but for the most part we were right there,” NT coach Tom Stefanucci said. “It’s there for the

taking.”
