SOC­CER

coach Greg Warfield, his team now 1-1, 0-1, was pleased.

“Yeah, they still shut us out,” Warfield said. “But last year, the score of this same game, we played it on Kent Is­land in­stead of here, was (19-1).

“We’ve more than im­proved,” Warfield added. “We’re a whole new team, al­most, in the way we play. We did weight train­ing. We’ve in­stalled a new of­fense. I told the kids be­fore this game, ‘Let’s go out there and shock the world. No­body is pick­ing us to win this game.’ And early on we were right with ‘em. I think a cou­ple of mis­takes ob­vi­ously hurt, but we didn’t just lay down and say we’re done.”

Warfield, whose squad won its opener, 11-0, against Wash­ing­ton — a team the Vik­ings lost to last year, 5-2 — is hop­ing for the team to con­tinue to play more co­he­sively, and more im­por­tantly, with in­creased ag­gres­sion.

“I told them, ‘From now on, when we come out to play, it’s no brakes,’” Warfield said. “I don’t mean tak­ing breaks. I

mean we play hard the whole 80 min­utes. And even though Kent Is­land beat us, I think we did that to­day. I made a change or two on de­fense for the sec­ond half, and I think maybe if we had done that in the first, in­stead of 7-0, we might have been more like 3-0. And we had some shots come close. One of them goes in if it was maybe 2-0 at half, who knows what hap­pens?”

Alex Brad­field’s laser shot with a lit­tle over 11 min­utes to go in the game made it 6-0. Bryam Quizhpe scored the fi­nal goal in the clos­ing mo­ments to round out the scor­ing.

The Bucs out­shot C-SD 207. Vik­ing ju­nior goalie Kane Sch­warz notched 11 saves, three com­ing on div­ing stops un­der pres­sure. Two C-SD shots in the fi­nal 12 min­utes hit ei­ther the cross­bar or a post in at­tempts to bust Kent Is­land’s shutout bid, but bounded away and were cleared by the de­fense.

“I think this was a good game for us,” Kent Is­land head coach Lin Out­ten said. “With the Ben­nett game, there were plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties for us, and for Ben­nett — they cer­tainly made plenty of chances

for them­selves to score in that one; any­one could’ve won that game — and tonight, I think we played well.

“They’re do­ing a nice job,” Out­ten added. “First thing, we came out here, and we saw this beau­ti­ful field, and we said, ‘Guys, let’s come out here and put to­gether some passes to take ad­van­tage of this great sur­face to play on. And then, let’s see what they have be­fore we get car­ried away with longer op­por­tu­ni­ties.’

“And I think we did a good job of try­ing to play short passes to each other,” Out­ten con­tin­ued. “And just see what they were gonna give us. Even­tu­ally we saw that they were play­ing a high de­fen­sive line, so we were try­ing to play be­hind them, and we were suc­cess­ful, even­tu­ally. But their goal­keeper did a great job of keep­ing it 0-0 for a while there early, stopped some of our shots. He played hard the whole game.”

C-SD’s is slated to play at Eas­ton on Wed­nes­day at 5:30 p.m. Q. Anne’s 8, N. Dorch­ester 0 CEN­TRE­VILLE — Ros­alio Bautista had a hat trick and Bryce
