Soccer: Caps earn tough road win at Leesville

Broughton scored a hard-fought 2-0 road win over Leesville Monday night to continue its unbeaten season.

The win over Leesville, which is in second place in the Cap 8, gives Broughton more cushion as it works to hold on to first place in the conference. The Caps are now 7-0-1 in conference play, while Leesville falls to 5-2-1, with both losses being to Broughton.

Elvis Wiredu
Senior Matt Brickhouse helped get the scoring started for Broughton about 10 minutes into the game, when he made an attacking run with the ball up the center of the field before passing off to junior Elvis Wiredu as he got into the box. Wiredu drove the ball into the goal from the left side.

The two teams traded chances for the rest of the half, with both teams missing on opportunities to score. The score was 1-0 at halftime.

Brandon Gettinger
The two teams continued to battle in the second half, but senior Brandon Gettinger gave the Caps a 2-0 lead when he blasted a pass from Wiredu past the Leesville keeper about 10 minutes into the second half.

Junior Ike Drooz drew a penalty in the box with about 10 minutes to go in the game, but the shot was called off because of encroachment by one of the Broughton players.

Hyu A
Senior keepers Frankie Stallings and Trey Morton combined on the shutout for Broughton, with help from defenders Hyu A, David Ridgeway, Jack Krueger and Grant Tyler.

Earlier, the Broughton junior varsity team eked out a tough 1-0 win over Leesville thanks to a header by Jacob Hill off a pass from Kebe Martinez.

The Caps, who are now ranked fifth among the state's 4-A schools by Eurosport (click on 4-A in the thin gray box near the top of the page), return to action Wednesday night. They play Millbrook at home in the second of three conference games this week.
