SALEM, Ore.– The Jallow Brothers aided the McKay Boys Soccer team in their 2-0 victory over North Salem Tuesday night, each scoring a goal in the victory as the Scots improved to 2-0 on the season.
Abdoulie scored in the first half as McKay led 1-0 going into the second half while twin brother Musa had added to the lead in the second half, capping the aggressive attack that McKay has brought against their crosstown rival.
“We came out here playing strongly. Coach told us at the training ground that we need to come here, go all out to win and stay strong in the mind. Stay patient and fight for the goal,” Musa Jallow said. “We did good (today).”
Prior to Musa Jallow’s goal, the Vikings had a crack at tying the game up thanks to a penalty kick opportunity about midway through the second half. The kick barely missed its mark as North Salem couldn’t quite get a clear shot at goal in the game with the Scots defense playing tough to the new look North Salem squad under first-year Head Coach Moises Mendoza Medina. Taking the next step from their opening season defeat to Ridgeview last Tuesday.
“Our chemistry has improved a little, we’re doing better and I think we played a little bit better. It helped us with our chemistry,” North Salem’s Adan Garcia said. “Just practicing more as a team, set pieces and working more as a team I think because we got a lot of new players (this year).”
North travels to Ida B. Wells on Friday for a 7:30pm start while McKay host Canby on Thursday at 7pm.
