SHILOH — Colonel Richardson High’s boys’ soccer team played matching halves Wednesday afternoon against North Dorchester, scoring four times before the break and four more after it for an 8-2 victory.
The Colonels now stand 4-2 overall, 2-2 North Bayside, while North Dorchester is 2-6, 1-4.
“We did well, we did really well,” Colonels head coach Brett Ireland said. “It’s funny, though. Today, we finished shots. We’ve had games where we had a ton of opportunities but couldn’t finish; today, though, we got it done.
“But now we’ve still got six games left to make up in about two weeks,” Ireland said. “The rain that we had the last couple of weeks has killed us, schedule-wise.”
Brockman Harris put the Colonels on the board with 4 minutes, 1 seconds elapsed in the first half, taking a Nick Roop feed and punching it in past Eagle keeper Mack Pearson (12 saves) for a 1-0 lead.
North Dorchester’s Emanuel Garcia nearly tied it up four minutes later. Sliding around a defender, Garcia hit a right-footed shot that skipped teasingly in front of Colonel’s net, where sophomore goalie Remy Mangum (seven saves) lunged and deflected the ball.
Roop scored Colonel’s next goal, off a pass from Harley Maldonado in the ninth minute to make it 2-0. Roop notched the second of his four assists on Dylan Wilson’s blast in the 10th minute following a free kick.
The Eagles responded 11 minutes later, Andrew Jackson scoring off a header to make it 3-1.
Colonel got the goal back a few minutes later, though, Roop again setting up Wilson to make it 4-1 going into intermission.
Nick Nagel right-footed a slow bouncer into the net just after halftime to make it 5-1. Roop narrowly missed his second goal a few moments later, when he hit the right post. Teammate Brandon Elmore was there to finish, though, for a goal and a 6-1 bulge.
The third of a flurry of shots in front North Dorchester’s net became Colonel’s seventh goal. Pearson punched the first one away, and an ND back tried to clear the second after it missed. But Maldonado put a foot on the ball one more time and found the back of the net.
Mitchell Christopher scored the last Colonel goal, with about five minutes left.
Eagle senior Zach Revel, who had played goalkeeper for much of high school, scored the second goal for his team with 92 seconds left to play, and a couple of minutes after he sailed a penalty-kick high into the northerly breeze.
“Colonel had a good offense,” Eagle rookie head coach Daniel Glynn said. “We’re a work in progress. We’ve had some good games, and some bad ones. ... We’ve got 12 seniors on the team, so we have experience. The playing time’s
maybe not at the levels that some might want, but we’re still working at it. We’re coming along.”

SSPP 6, Boys Latin 1
BALTIMORE — James Hastings received a pass from Matt Bailey, beat a defender and scored, triggering a tiebreaking, three-goal burst before halftime by the Sabres, who rolled in Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference play.
Saints Peter and Paul (7-2) took a 1-0 lead when Owen Shroeder played a great ball into Cole Koski for a goal. Boys Latin pulled even before Hastings nudged the Sabres in front to stay. Koski followed by sending a ball into the box that was converted into a 3-1 lead by Shroeder. Bailey then dished to Eric Peterson to cap the first-half scoring.
Sts. Peter & Paul expanded its lead 6 minutes into the second half when Koski fired a shot that was initially stopped by the keeper, but not controlled in time to keep Hastings from coming in and depositing the fifth goal. Aidan Ryan took a pass from Bailey and arced a shot in to complete the scoring.
Goalie Nathan Shafer made four saves for the Sabres, who play at Friends on Friday.
