Starting the game like a team determined to win, the Broughton men dominated Monday night's match with Wake Forest-Rolesville from start to finish. The players seem to be energized after the weekend break and played well the entire match.
Jon Pace started the shooting by hitting the right post, shortly after kick-off. But unlike recent matches for the Caps, that was the last post hit. Lassiter Tollison served a corner to the back post for Forest Lasso to drill into the net for the first goal of the contest. Within minutes, Pace put a nice shot on goal. Although blocked by the WF-R keeper, the ball continued to roll toward the open net where Tollison finished it. The last goal of the half came when Lasso hit Tollison in stride with a beautiful long pass and Tollison placed the shot around the keeper. WF-R did score in the first half when an aggressive forward was fed a nice pass and was able to get it past Broughton's Matt Franciosi. Although the striker was 3 yards offsides, the assistant referee was not able to make the call and the goal was counted.
The Caps did not let down in the second half. The first goal of the second half was a great 20 yard shot from Lasso. After colliding near midfield with a WF-R defender, Lasso accelerated around the right side of the defense and placed a nice shot in the upper left corner of the goal. The fifth goal was another well-struck shot by CJ Tikvart following a throw into the box. And the sixth goal for the Caps was the result of a fantastic cross from the right wing by Cenorino Martinez to Andre Fortune. Fortune hit a solid shot past the keeper to wrap up scoring for the Caps.
Coach Hernandez was able to get most of the team on the field in the second half for significant playing time. The starters earned the break, and the backup players performed well. The second WF-R goal made it to the net as time expired.
The Caps next match is at home Wednesday night versus Enloe. Enloe comes into the match tied for third in the Cap8 with a 2-1 record, while the Caps are currently tied for fifth with a 1-2 conference record. Plan to come out for the 6:30pm match to cheer the Caps on to their second conference victory.
