NEW BOSTON — The St. Joseph Flyers are developing an aggressive attitude.
The Flyers used possession and defense as they attacked the New Boston Tigers for a 4-1 soccer win on Saturday.
“Possession of the ball was definitely in our favor and our defense shut down the Tigers attack,” said Flyers’ coach Mike Balestra.
“The defense transitioned the ball well allowing us to be on the attack most of the game. We have made it our goal to improve every week.”
St. Joseph (3-2-3) got two goals from Isaac Whaley while Jimmy Mahlmeister and Clay Willis each had a goal. Zach Roach had an assist.
Flyers’ goalkeeper Jared John had seven saves.
Kade Conley score New Boston’s goal while goalie Kyle Sexton had 11 saves.
St. Joseph had 28 shots with 15 on goal and six corner kicks. They had eight fouls.
New Boston had 13 shots with seven on goal, two corner kicks and 10 fouls.
“We are happy with where we are at right now and we’re showing glimpses of improvement.  We still have work to do but I like our work effort.  Outside of the Chesapeake game, we have been within one goal of everybody we have played,” said Balestra.
The Flyers visited Portsmouth Clay on Tuesday and host Chesapeake on Thursday.
