Boys soccer: Lange extends his Pacific goal-scoring record
MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan – Kai Lange keeps piling up the goals and his Matthew C. Perry boys soccer team keeps piling up the wins.
The Samurai junior striker added seven more goals over the weekend, extending his Pacific single-season record to 72, and leading Perry to two wins in three matches. They improved to 18-8-3 on the season.
“Seventy two. Amazing,” said his coach and father, Mark Lange, who almost immediately sounded a cautionary note.
“He would have more, except he’s also creeping up there in assists,” the elder Lange said of Kai, who has 19 assists; he accounted for every Perry goal this weekend. “And records are made to be broken. Some last for a long time.”
The Samurai lost 4-3 Friday to the Orient Tigers club team, then blanked E.J. King 3-0 and beat the Cobras 5-1 in two matches on Saturday.
