Lloyd nets hat trick in first half of rout

PRINCESS ANNE — The best de­fense can be a good of­fense.

If the de­fense is play­ing well, too, then the re­sult is of­ten what hap­pened Wed­nes­day for the North Dorch­ester High boys’ soc­cer team.

Wil­liam Lloyd’s hat trick pow­ered a six-goal first half, as the Ea­gles evened their record with an 8-0 vic­tory over Wash­ing­ton.

North Dorch­ester (2-2) out­shot Wash­ing­ton by a 21-6 mar­gin, con­trol­ling the tempo for most of the game and keep­ing the Jaguar de­fen­sive unit busy for al­most all 80 min­utes.

Lloyd scored his first goal in the sev­enth minute, a right-footer which Jaguar keeper Ryan Hunger­ford (10 saves) got a piece of, but not enough to keep it out of the net. A shot by Gar­rett Walker car­omed off a Wash­ing­ton de­fender right to Lloyd, who used his knee to score his se­cond goal two min­utes later.

A hand­ball call in­side the penalty box led to Fer­nando Sanchez’s penalty kick in the 19th minute for a 3-0 Ea­gles lead.

“We had a cou­ple of bounces that went the right way, and Will took ad­van­tage of them,” Ea­gles head

coach Dan Glynn said. “It’s what he’s been doing for us. He’s our leader in scor­ing, and we an­tic­i­pate him com­ing out and putting the ball in the back of the net.

“We got good sup­port from the other guys up front and in the mid­dle,” Glynn added. “When the of­fense is up a lot, they move up a lit­tle in the back, and... that helps close that gap in the mid­dle, makes it harder for the other team to get any­thing go­ing.”

Wash­ing­ton (0-5) threat­ened mid­way through the first half, a shot by Aron Tsige­het sail­ing just wide to the left. An­other Jaguar shot hit the left post late in the first half.

Lloyd’s third score came mo­ments later, mak­ing it 4-0. Seth Tal­ley’s high-arc­ing shot from the left side made it 5-0 nine min­utes be­fore half­time. Ben John­son con­verted a Devin Lord pass for a 6-0 half­time bulge, trig­ger­ing the run­ning clock in the se­cond half.

Sanchez got his se­cond goal mid­way through the se­cond half and Michael Kroeger scored the game’s fi­nal goal in the 74th minute. An­other Tsige­het shot from the left side buzzed to­ward the Ea­gle net, but again went wide left.

Ea­gle keeper Mar­quise Parker notched three saves in the win.

North Dorch­ester’s next game is sched­uled for Mon­day at home against Colonel Richard­son at 4 p.m. Wash­ing­ton hosts Mardela next Tues­day.
