Rockport 4 Saugus 2
The Vikings move to 5-1 on the year with the win and remain atop the Cape Ann League Small.
Jonathan Ferrante put Rockport up 1-0 before Saugus tied the score. Goal keeper Jake Rostowski stopped a Sachems breakaway shortly after they tied the game and that sparked the Vikings to two more first half goals from Shaun Aspesi and Andrew Waynrynen. Aspesi would add a goal early in the second half and the Vikings held on from there.
Rockport’s inside midfielders Mateo Laverde, Sam Roell and Gideon Roell played great in the middle of the field while center backs Matthew Tibert and Mike Carbone helped shut down a potent Saugus offense.

Missed opportunities plagued the Vikings (0-5-2) as they controlled play for most of the game but could not bury their chances.
Freshman Isobel Gleckner scored Rockport’s goal early in the second half to make it 1-0, but Saugus ended the contest with three unanswered goals.
