In a game with no shortage for hero’s, the pair pictured above get some well-deserved attention as they helped lead the SLUH Jr Billikens to a narrow win tonight AND the CYC Meyer Division title. Cameron Verzino buried a direct kick into the lower left hand corner past a diving Cameron Meyer in the 54th minute for the game-winner in a 1-0 win. Jeffrey Walter (#24) cleared a shot off the line in the 79th minute behind his keeper to preserve the victory.

Walters, a senior who came out for the team this year after choosing not to play last year per Coach Charlie Martel, was joined by Miles Horton in key saves, as he stood tall on the far post to clear a shot by Sam Leach that seemed destined for the back of the net. Another clearance in the first half, and a couple of key saves you Alec Meissner in goal in the first half offers a glimpse of the team win achieved tonight.
