Andrew Ciaglo potted a pair of second-half goals and visiting Hopkins Academy scored a 3-0 victory over Pioneer in boys soccer season-finale action Saturday night in Northfield.

Hopkins finished its Fall II season 5-0-2 overall, the lone unbeaten team in the area on the boys side.

Greg Kucinski staked the Golden Hawks to a 1-0 lead with a free kick from 25 yards out in the first half. Ciaglo’s second-half goals were assisted by Colin Earle and Chris Mushenski.

In action late Friday night, Pioneer fell to Smith Academy, 3-0, on the boys side.

Nate Moynihan scored twice for the Falcons, though Josh Glazier’s 59th minute goal from Liam Bradley-Curtis temporarily tied the game at 1-1. Moynihan made it 2-1 with a goal in the 70th minute, and Quinn Donahue iced things with a 75th minute strike to make it 3-1.

Pioneer goalie Zach Piescik made 12 saves and Smith’s Ryan Belina turned away eight shots.

“Very fun game,” Pioneer coach Don Fraser said. “Smith carried the play early but we were able to counter with good ball control and unselfish passing. Both teams played with great composure and solid defensive play. Zach Piescik played the best game of his life in goal and made three or four absolutely incredible stops.”
