We’re not saying their pink socks were lucky, but Amherst’s varsity boys did notch a 3-2 win Monday over Vermilion in a pink-out game calling attention to the fight against breast cancer.

The Comets struck three times in the first half as Aiden Serrano, Justin Lepkowski, and Colin O’Connor rang up goals on assists by Michael Rakar, Jacob Snowden, and Lepkowski.

Goalkeeper Xavier Potts had 12 saves on the night. Sailors Ryan Bodeker and Fisher Featherstone fired two into the net in the second half.

Amherst’s junior varsity squad also enjoyed a huge 8-2 victory.

The Eagles got the best of the Comets last week in a 2-1 game.

Though Amherst led 1-0 at halftime on a goal by O’Connor, Avon equalized with 17 minutes remaining on a goal from Will Laurendeau (assisted by Nick Mazzola), then took the lead with just over six minutes to go on a goal from Michael Lehoty (assisted by Owen Lacko).

Potts had eight saves for Amherst.

In JV action, the Comets drew the Eagles to a 0-0 tie.
