Soccer: Caps win at Heritage

CJ Tickvart works the ball through the defense.
The men's soccer team continued their winning ways Monday night at Heritage High School posting a 5-1 victory.  Heritage High School is a new school in the Cap8 and currently only has a freshman and sophomore class.  Although outmanned, Heritage played the entire match with energy.

The best goal of the match was the first.  CJ Tickvart placed a beautiful shot careening off of the top post and into the net.  The Heritage keeper never had a chance to stop the shot.  The scoring continued throughout the night, with the last two Broughton goals coming from headers.

Coach Hernandez was again able to give quality playing time to his back-ups.  All four keepers on the roster played well.  The lone goal was allowed in the second half when the Caps' keeper came out to grab a cross and was knocked off balance by one of his defenders.  The ball fell in front of the open goal and Zachary Irwin was able to finish it.

The victory moves the Caps over .500 in the conference for the first time this season with a 3-2 record.  The next match is Wednesday, 6:30pm at Wakefield.  Wakefield is dangerous.  Two weeks ago, they tied conference leader Millbrook for the Pride's only conference blemish this season.
