Crescenta Valley’s Pavle Atanackovic scored three goals, which alone was enough, in Tuesday’s match with Crossroads. But teammate Erick Trejo added two more goals to provide insurance for the 5-2 Falcons win.
Crossroads kept the match close, first with Jordan Fier rebounding a save at the goal line and kicking the ball in from point blank to put the game at 2-1 before halftime.
Then, after Willy Gansa’s header made the score 4-2 early in the second half, the Roadrunners had numerous corner kicks and throw-ins to threaten the Falcons. But Crossroads couldn’t convert and the last of Trejo’s goals sealed the game.
Crossroads will host Animo Leadership on Thursday.
