Soccer: Caps blow through Wakefield

Broughton's men soccer team extended their current win streak  to four by defeating Wakefield 6-1.  It was a very entertaining game, but the Caps put this one out of reach early.   Two minutes into the contest, AJ Iiames flew high above the Wakefield defense and headed a throw-in from Lassiter Tollison just inside the far post to give the Caps the lead for good.  The second goal was scored eleven minutes later. JK Tikvart passed the ball perfectly from the left wing to Forrest Lasso who had broken open in the middle of the field.  Lasso struck the ball cleanly into the left corner of the goal.  With ten minutes remaining in the half, the Wakefield keeper had moved 10-15 yards off his line to make a pass to his defender when Tikvart stole the ball and nailed the open goal from 25 yards out.  With 3 minutes remaining in the half, the goal of the game was scored by Luke Janes.  Janes was able to get his head on a corner from Tollison and redirect the ball straight up.  As the ball came down, Janes ripped a beautiful volley from 20 yards out past the keeper, giving the Caps a 4-0 halftime lead.  Matt Franciosi had another good game in goal, coming off his line at just the right time to keep Wakefield's scoring opportunities shut-down.

The second half allowed the Broughton backups to get significant playing time.  Reserve keeper Everett McCord, made an acrobatic save 9 minutes into the half.  The corner that followed was also put on frame and McCord made another nice save.  Six minutes later, Wakefields forward was able to break free on the the wing and put a shot into the goal for their only goal of the evening. 

With 12 minutes remaining in the contest, Lasso redirected a corner just inside the near post for his second goal of the night.  The Caps third keeper of the evening, Grant Bishop, made a great save with 3 minutes left in the game.  The Caps scored their last goal with 35 seconds remaining in the match when Cenorino Martinez worked to get himself open and finished the shot for his first goal of the year.

Monday night at 6:30pm, the Caps will host Sanderson in another conference battle.  Both teams have a 4-2 conference record and are tied for third.  Come out and cheer the Caps on to their fifth straight victory!
