HS Roundup: GI boys win soccer title

Niagara Gazette — In a wet, sloppy game during which each team had limited scoring changes, Grand Island goalkeeper Justin Sigler proved pivotal as he stopped a Niagara-Wheatfield breakaway with just five minutes remaining.

Troy Brady would then find Joe Farrell in overtime as the Vikings defeated the Falcons (11-3 NFL), 1-0. Grand Island (13-3, 13-1 NFL) captured the Niagara Frontier League regular season championship and earned the No. 1 seed heading into sectionals.

“We put in a lot of work this year and I don’t think anyone was really expecting us to win the league,” said head coach Chaz Bulera. “We proved them wrong.”

Bulera and his team doesn’t want this to be the highest point of the season as they look forward to postseason play to begin.

“We all know this is just a step and hopefully leads to better things in sectionals as No. 1 seed heading into next part of season,” Bulera said.
