Eric Bourgeois collected a pair of second-half goals in Eastern Wayne's 2-0 conquest of North Lenoir in non-conference men's soccer action Thursday evening at Little Big Horn.
Bourgeois tallied the game-winning mark in the 55th minute. Jin Lee dribbled past Hawks sweeper Justin Carter around the left outside of the box and rifled a low cross to the back post. Bourgeois tapped it in for the 1-0 lead.
More than 20 minutes later, Sean Worrell served a free kick high into the right side of the 6-yard box. Bourgeois finished the play, connecting on goal into the upper right corner.
The unbeaten Warriors (2-0) outshot the Hawks 18-12 and owned a decisive 6-1 advantage in corners.
Keeper Vincent Hagedorn notched two saves and earned the shutout in goal.
"We played a solid possession game throughout the match, but were a little unfortunate to finish in the early going," said Eastern Wayne coach Jorg Wagner, whose team battled to a 0-0 draw at halftime.
"Bourgeois' strong finishing was especially important with Andrew Corley (concussion) and Eric Rivera (broken collarbone) injured after the Fike game. In addition, we had to replace Dustin Smith midway through the game due to a pulled quadriceps."
Wagner cited the play of Matt Wolf, who organized the Warriors' attack well from his central back position.
Eastern Wayne entertains Wilmington Ashley at 7 p.m. Monday.
