Soccer: Quick strikes lead to win over Heritage

Broughton struck early in each half Monday night to chalk up a 3-1 conference win against Heritage and remain undefeated on the season.

Elvis Wiredu
Junior Elvis Wiredu got the scoring started for the Caps less than two minutes into the home game when he finished off a through-ball from senior Matt Brickhouse on a counter off a Heritage corner kick.

The Caps continued to take the attack to Heritage through much of the first half. A couple of Heritage attacks were stopped by nice defensive work by junior Hyu A.

Broughton struck again about midway through the first half when Brickhouse took a lofted ball from junior Ibrahim Mohamud and headed it beyond the reach of the charging Heritage keeper and into the goal to make the score 2-0, which is where it stood at halftime.

Wiredu scored again within the first two minutes of the second half after senior Chris Vlahoplus dribbled through much of the Heritage defense before passing it off to Wiredu just outside the box. Wiredu's goal gave the Caps a 3-0 lead.

Heritage became the aggressor at that point, keeping the ball in Broughton's end for much of the rest of the second half. Senior keeper Trey Morton made several saves, including one on a Heritage free kick from just outside the box.

But Heritage finally scored about midway through the half to make the score 3-1. With less than 40 seconds to go in the game, Morton made one final save to seal the win.

Earlier, the Broughton junior varsity team scored a 2-0 victory over the junior varsity from Heritage.

Broughton's next game is Wednesday night at home against Wake Forest. Come out and cheer on your Caps as they look to continue their winning streak. Go Caps!
