Newark Memorial's Cougars JV boy's soccer team recently competed with Washington High School and held the Huskies scoreless with a 3-0 victory. The win allowed the cougars to maintain a perfect 3-0-0 record in the Mission Valley Athletic League and a 5-2-2 record overall.
From the start of the game the Cougars took the attack to the Huskies and scored in the first five minutes of the game. With defensive pressure throughout the first half, the Cougars were able to control the ball with great ball handling, not allowing the Huskies to take shots on goal
In the second half, the Huskies tried to open up their offense with no better result; the Cougars defense was overwhelming and the offense was able to score again. This year, Newark's JV soccer team appears to have very good offense and are the JV team to beat in the MVAL.
