BELOIT - The Beloit Memorial soccer team moved to 7-1 on the season with an impressive 3-1 win over Madison La Follette Thursday night.

Andrew Montero scored the first two goals of the game within three minutes of each other in the first half. The first goal came off an assist from Danny Salazar, with the second coming on a free kick from 25 yards out in the 23rd minute.

Erick Antimo scored a goal in the 67th minute to pull the Lancers within 2-1, but Salazar found the back of the net to give the Knights some cushion.

"I was really impressed with the way we played," Beloit Memorial coach Brian Denu said. "My only complaint would be that we didn't find the back of the net more. We came out extremely aggressive and had a lot of opportunities early in the game. Overall, it was a really good showing from top to bottom."

Denu said beyond those that ended with their names in the boxscore, several Knights stood out.

"We are really pleased with the play of Devin Stavn off the bench," Denu said. "Our sophomores (James Castellanos, Johnny Leon and Gustavo Salazar) have added some much-needed depth to our rotation. We are fortunate to have solid players in all grade levels and these boys have taken advantage of the opportunities given to them."

• UP NEXT: The Knights will play this weekend in Hononegah's Indian State Cup, beginning with a challenging game against United Township Friday at 5:30 p.m.
