Junior Max Varouh and senior Justin Lepkowski combined for the game-winning goal Saturday for the Comets in a 1-0 boys soccer victory over Medina Highland.
After being held scoreless in the first half, Amherst pulled ahead when Varouh slipped the ball into the box for Lepkowski to finish.
Sophomore goalkeeper Xavier Potts had six saves and his first shutout of the year for the Comets.
The young Amherst back line was solid all night led by freshmen center backs Ben Biedenbach and Joey Yochheim.
