Patriots build a 2-0 halftime lead and go on to down Boys’ Latin, 3-1

Meeting for the first time as MIAA A Conference league rivals, the John Carroll and Boys’ Latin soccer teams battled in Roland Park, Tuesday afternoon, and it was the visiting Patriots who claimed their first win of the season with a 3-1 victory.

Michal Gradus scored a pair of first half goals to stake JC (1-2 overall, 1-1 MIAA A) to a 2-0 lead and completed a hat-trick with a second half tally.

Boys’ Latin pulled within one goal by converting a corner kick with 10 minutes remaining in the contest, but the Patriots restored their two goal lead with five minutes remaining.
