Prep Soccer Roundup: TC gets dual hat tricks in win
Columbian had a pair of players score hat tricks Tuesday, as the Tornadoes buried Marion Harding on their senior night, 10-0.
Mike Brady and Alec Demith each found the net three times, taking a 5-0 halftime lead and turning the contest into an all-out rout after that.
Spencer Pauly got things started with a pair of goals in the game’s first four minutes.
The first goal was assisted by Garrett Bean, while the second was unassisted. Brady scored the next two goals, one of which was assisted by Peyton Demith, to take a 4-0 lead.
Alec Demith capped the half with an unassisted goal in the 17th minute.
In the second half, Hunter Stark found the net in the 41st minute (assisted by Christian Kiesel), then Kiesel found the goal six minutes later himself on a score assisted by Pauly.
Brady scored again, and Kiesel assisted again, in the 50th minute. The game’s last two goals were scored by Alec Demith, with the final one being assisted by Nathaniel Gilmer.
The Tornadoes out-shot the Presidents 28-7, with Harding’s Logan Pirnstill making 18 saves. Columbian used two goalkeepers: Josh Gibson and John Funk, each of whom made three saves.
Late goal lifts Mohawk
SYCAMORE – For 71 minutes, defenses dominated as Mohawk hosted Ada. But Mohawk was able to break the tie as Shlanea Bloomfield came off the bench and knocked a pass from Cambria Kohlenberg into the back of the net for a 1-0 Mohawk victory.
“It was a pretty hard-fought battle between both teams,” Mohawk coach Joel Wilkins said. “We had 12 shots on goal to three. We had a lot of opportunities. Shlanea came off the bench for us and did a great job getting her self in position in front of the goal. Anytime you can get a goal late in the game it adds to the excitement.”
Ally Weinandy saved all three shots she faced in goal to earn the shutout win.
Mohawk sits at 3-12-1 on the season.
The game was a “Kick for the Cure” game where $400 was raised to support cancer research.
