The Havre de Grace Warriors boys soccer team moved a big step closer to the UCBAC Susquehanna Division title Tuesday night with a 1-0 win over visiting North East.

North East had two decent opportunities minutes before the goal, but neither shot found the net as Warriors goalie James Antonoplos earned another shutout.
