North­men rout Pats

Woonsocket Call - - SPORTS -

NORTH SMITH­FIELD — For the sec­ond time in as many home games, the North Smith­field boys soc­cer team jumped all over a Val­ley op­po­nent in the first half to se­cure an­other Divi­sion II vic­tory.

Days af­ter scor­ing five unan­swered goals in the first half against Mount, the North­men, be­hind a pair of goals from se­nior for­ward Michael deRonde, raced out to a four-goal ad­van­tage at half­time against vis­it­ing Davies. deRonde fin­ished with a pair of goals and Bryan De­celles added a pair of as­sists in a 4-0 vic­tory over the Pa­tri­ots Fri­day af­ter­noon.

“In a game that’s a trap game, it’s nice to jump­ing on them early and we’ve done that the last two games,” North Smith­field coach Eric Ko­ry­tkowski said. “We don’t have to press be­cause we’re scor­ing early. We moved the ball re­ally well around the back and wore them out in the first half.”

North Smith­field (10-1 Di- vi­sion II) needed just 90 se­conds to put a shot past Davies se­nior goalie Jonathan Soares (9 saves). Michael Duffy played a cross from the right touch­line into the box, De­celles con­trolled the ball and moved it to deRonde for the game-win­ning goal.

Se­nior cap­tain Ri­ley Crozier dou­bled the lead five min­utes into the con­test when he looped a header over Soares af­ter a nice cross by Michael Fer­nan­des. A Pa­triot headed in an Ai­dan Beau­chemin free kick into his own net at 24 min­utes and De­celles found deRonde for the fi­nal goal with two min­utes left in the half.

North Smith­field trav­els to Prout Mon­day, while Davies Tech (1-5-3 Divi­sion II) hosts West War­wick Mon­day af­ter­noon.
