EDWARDSBURG – After a scoreless first half, the host Edwardsburg Eddies exploded for four goals en route to a 4-0 Lakeland Conference victory over Buchanan.

Solid defense and several stellar saves by Buchanan goalie Steven VanAlstine kept the Bucks in the match the entire first half.

Deadlock at zero at the half ended with a well conditioned Edwardsburg, keeping the pressure on in the second half, finally broke loose in the final 40 minutes.

The Eddies fired 20 shots on goal in the first 40 minutes with VanAlstine coming up big and making the stop each time to keep the Bucks in the match.

At the other end of the field Buchanan could only manage four shots on goal three of those coming in the opening minutes of the contest.

Edwardsburg finally hit the back of the net nine minutes into the second half off the foot of Zak Karamalegos after a scramble for the ball off a corner kick by the Eddies.

Edwardsburg continued to keep the pressure on the Bucks defense taking another 13 shots.

Evan VanBelle scored at the 58th minute for a 2-0 lead.

Luke Rohrman added the Eddies’ third goal in 66th minute and Andy Boyles capped of the scoring in the 75th minute.
