The Phoenix boys soccer team gets a break before the start of a game earlier this season.
Junior Justin Mason led the Phoenix in a 4-1 victory Saturday over the Lutheran West Longhorns.
He finished two goals in the first half to give the Phoenix an early lead over the Longhorns. Mason has 14 goals on the season.
Oberlin’s Nijyl Brewer extended his team’s lead to 3-0 going into halftime. Senior Mark Woodson added a goal in the second half to match Lutheran West’s single goal to secure the Phoenix the win.
The Phoenix improved to 10-4 overall in the season and 5-3 in the Patriot Athletic Conference.
Oberlin dropped a 4-2 PAC loss last Wednesday to the Fairview Warriors.
Brewer’s two goals in the first half gave Oberlin an early lead before Fairview battled its way back into the game and finished four shots to steal the win.
The Phoenix will travel to Independence to face the Blue Devils at 1 p.m. Saturday.
