It’s only fitting that a senior comes through on Senior Night and that’s what Mike McAndrew did for Sun Valley Tuesday.
McAndrew’s blast from 30 yards out six minutes into overtime gave the Vanguards a 1-0 Ches-Mont League victory over Bishop Shanahan.
It was the first goal of McAndrew’s varsity career. Evan Roland had the assist and Brendan Skwirut made five saves to post his third shutout of the season for the Vanguards (2-14-1 overall, 2-9-1 league).
In the Inter-Ac League:

Will Baltrus made nine saves in goal for the Fords.
