MANSFIELD — For the second time this week, the Mansfield High boys’ soccer team did not allow Taunton High to hit the back of the net.
Junior Jack Lasbury-Casey made his first start of the season in goal for the Hornets and posted 10 saves, including four in the fourth quarter, to preserve his first shutout in a 1-0 Hockomock League victory over the Tigers.
“Defense is something that we’ve always prided ourselves on,” Mansfield coach Steve Sheridan said of the Hornets (3-1), who have allowed one goal through their first four matches.
Sophomore Aidan Steele scored the lone goal two minutes into the second half on a rebound off of a corner re-start by Ethan Scholes.
The Hornets’ defensive backline, led by senior captain Evan Eames, limited Taunton to just shot during the first half.
The Hornets visit Attleboro Monday.
