    Hornets shut out Riverside


    The state-ranked Kirtland Hornets traveled to Painesville on Monday and defeated the host Riverside Beavers, 2-0.

    Kirtland, ranked No. 8 in the latest Division III state soccer poll, posted its fifth shutout of the season and second straight in improving to 6-1 on the year.

    “We came out a little flat, but managed two goals nonetheless,” Kirtland coach John Valentic said. “Riverside is a solid team. They’re organized and quick throughout the field. We had a bit more possession and more chances, but they did a nice job keeping us from adding to the total.”

    Vikram Sundrarajan and Jason de Zwaan scored for the Hornets with both goals set up by Marko Cubela, who now leads the Hornets with four assists.

    Tyler Banyasz recorded five saves in the win. He now has allowed just three goals in seven games.

    “It was a tough, physical match and now we have Berkshire (on Tuesday),” Valentic said. “That, too, will be a challenge.”

    Kirtland hosts Berkshire on Tuesday at 4:30.
