Lexington stole the show early in the seventh annual Kicks for Cancer tournament, defeating Wakefield, 3-1, at Concord-Carlisle.

Junior midfielder Jaime Wheaton hit two long-range efforts just wide early on, and the Minutemen controlled the game early. By using more width than Wakefield, the Minutemen went ahead.

In the 20th minute, sophomore Lewis Mustoe scored from eight yards out, side-footing a loose ball into the corner of the net off a corner kick.

Seventeen minutes later, Mustoe struck again. Midfielder Arnold Joseph took the ball down the right wing and Mustoe made a near-post run, shooting the cross first-time past the keeper to make the score 2-0 at halftime.

All teams participating wore names of loved ones who have died from or are fighting cancer.
