SHILOH — The Colonel Richard­son High boys’ soc­cer team played match­ing halves on the road against North Dorch­ester Wed­nes­day, Oct. 5, scor­ing four times be­fore the break and four more after it, to win 8-2.

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.”

Kent Is­land 4, Kent County 0

STEVENSVILLE — Carter Dun­can scored twice and Blake Groves had a pair of as­sists to lead the un­beaten Buc­ca­neers to their third shutout.

Ryan Knaggs (as­sist) and Jack­son Kra­tovil each scored a goal for Kent Is­land (6-0, 4-0) and Mar­shall Haas had an as­sist.

Kent Is­land cen­ter back Dorsey Schulz made one save to pre­serve the shutout. Bucs keeper Jack­son Davis didn’t make any saves.

Eas­ton 4, N. Caro­line 2

EAS­TON — An­drew Daly and Ger­ardo Or­tiz (as­sist) scored two goals each, help­ing the War­riors im­prove to 5-0, 3-0. Trent Weems and Mauro Garniga Al­varado also found the net once apiece, and Colin El­liott dished an as­sist.

An­drew Adel­hart and Liam Dowdell scored for the Bull­dogs, who fell to 2-4-2, 2-3-1.

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.
