The Corner Brook Molson Senior Men’s Soccer League campaign has officially begun.
The Under-18s defeated the Sorrento Tactics FC 2-0 Wednesday night at Wellington Street Sports Complex in the season opener.
Andrew Peckford and Daniel Whitten were the goal scorers in the winning cause.
Tyler Kelloway recorded the clean sheet, while Evan Fequet suffered the loss at the other end of the field.
Whitten scored the first goal of the season in the 70th minute, which would turn out to be the winner.
Peckford added his marker seven minutes later to essentially seal the triumph.
