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.

Matt Brickhouse
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.

Trey Morton
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!

Soccer: Caps hold on for win at Wake Forest

Broughton stormed out to a commanding lead in Thursday night's game at Wake Forest and then held off a furious comeback attempt to secure a 4-3 win to stay undefeated for the season.

The Caps opened the game with a slew of scoring opportunities, but missed wide or had shots blocked before senior Chris Vlahoplus finished off a through-ball from senior Brandon Gettinger to take a 1-0 lead midway through the first half.

Barely a minute later, the Wake Forest keeper was fortunate to get his outstretched foot on a rocket of a shot by junior Elvis Wiredu. But Wiredu helped add to Broughton's total a few minutes later when he passed to senior Matt Brickhouse, who put in a shot from close range to make the score 2-0.

Wake Forest responded with a quick goal of its own to make the score 2-1, but the Caps responded even quicker when sophomore Abdulle Ibrahim scored about 30 seconds later off a through-ball from Brickhouse to make the score 3-1.

The flurry of action also resulted in a red card and ejection for the Wake Forest head coach. The score at halftime was 3-1.

Broughton struck just a few minutes into the second half, when Brickhouse scored his second goal of the game off of a pass from junior Grant Tyler to give the Caps a 4-1 lead.

The score stayed the same through  much of the second half, thanks in part to a save by Broughton keeper Benjamin McCord on a strong shot by Wake Forest with about 14 minutes remaining in the game.

But with less than eight minutes remaining in the game, Wake Forest scored off a strong free kick from just outside the box and then scored again a couple of minutes later to close the gap to 4-3. The Caps then maintained possession for much of the remainder of the game to notch their fourth win (against one tie) in conference play.

The Caps return home for two conference games next week, the first one on Monday night against Heritage. Encourage your friends and family members to come out to support the Caps.

Soccer: Caps score big road win at Wakefield

The Caps opened a week of three conference road games with a convincing 4-1 win at Wakefield on Monday night.

Broughton was the aggressor from the beginning, just missing on a couple of shots in the game's opening minutes. Then senior Brandon Gettinger caught the Wakefield keeper flat-footed with a sudden strike from outside the box that put the Caps up 1-0 five minutes into the game. Senior Chris Vlahoplus assisted on the goal.

David Ridgeway
The Caps barely missed on a few more shots before junior Ibrahim Mohamud put Broughton ahead 2-0 about 10 minutes into the game with a shot from close range after a series of passes that began as a corner kick. Junior Ike Drooz assisted on the goal.

Wakefield had a chance to get back in the game midway through the first half, but hit the post from close range despite having an open shot at the goal. Junior Bryant O'Neal quickly took advantage a couple of minutes later, finishing off a pass from senior Peter Winter to make the score 3-0 at halftime.

It didn't take long for Broughton to add to their total as the second half began, with Mohamud converting a penalty kick after drawing a foul in the box less than two minutes into the half to make the score 4-0.

Jack Krueger
The Caps' defense, led by seniors David Ridgeway and Jack Krueger, fought off repeated attacks by Wakefield the rest of the game. At one point midway through the second half, keeper Frankie Stallings made back-to-back saves before Krueger escaped from the scrum in front of the net to clear the ball.

Wakefield had several shots go wide or high, but finally managed to get on the scoreboard with about 12 minutes to go in the game. The final score was 4-1 in favor of the Caps.

Earlier, the Broughton junior varsity team played Wakefield to a 1-1 tie, with Tyler Youngberg scoring late in the game off an assist by Will Hernandez.

Soccer: Caps win heady game at Millbrook

The Caps got off to a quick start Monday night, scoring less than a minute into the game, and then held on for a 3-2 win on the road at Millbrook.

Matt Brickhouse
Senior Matt Brickhouse got the scoring started 47 seconds into the game when he finished off a shot by senior Chris Vlahoplus that bounced off the crossbar to the foot of the goal. The score came at the end of a sequence of passes that began when Vlahoplus sent a ball wide to junior Ibrahim Mohamud, who crossed it back into the center to Vlahoplus.

Broughton took a 2-0 lead nearly midway through the half when Brickhouse lofted a long throw-in into the box that was headed by junior Elvis Wiredu to senior Brandon Gettinger, who headed the ball into the goal.

But Millbrook fought back, slotting a header into the goal off a corner kick about 10 minutes later. At halftime, Broughton was up 2-1.

Those were just the beginning of key plays involving players' heads, as Wiredu just missed the goal wide on a header off another long throw-in by Brickhouse about 12 minutes into the second half. A few minutes later, Broughton keeper Frankie Stallings made a leaping save with his head as he raced a Millbrook player to a ball outside the box.

Broughton then took a 3-1 lead a couple of minutes later when Brickhouse - you guessed it - headed in a cross from Wiredu.

Brandon Gettinger
The Caps were unable to convert several other scoring chances over the next several minutes, giving Millbrook the chance to close the gap when it scored with about four minutes remaining in the game to make the final score 3-2 in favor of Broughton.

Earlier, Broughton's junior varsity team lost 1-2 to Millbrook.

The Caps next game is a home contest on Wednesday against Sanderson. Encourage your friends and family to come out to provide a great home crowd as the Caps look to keep their winning streak going.

Soccer: Caps begin conference play with win

Broughton kicked off its Cap 8 conference season Wednesday night with a hard-fought 4-1 win over a scrappy Leesville team.

Ibrahim Mohamud
The Caps were led by junior Ibrahim Mohamud, who scored two goals to go along with penalty kicks converted by junior Ike Drooz and senior Brandon Gettinger.

Both teams had chances in the first 20 minutes of the game, but Broughton struck first when junior Elvis Wiredu drew a foul inside the Leesville box as he was attacking the goal slightly more than midway through the half. Drooz converted the penalty kick to give Broughton a 1-0 lead.

Broughton scored again about 12 minutes later when the Leesville keeper couldn't hold on to a shot from outside by Gettinger. A hustling Mohamud was there to convert the rebound from close range to make the score 2-0 going into halftime.

Brandon Gettinger
Leesville was the aggressor as the second half began, scoring just three minutes into the game. The visitors continued to apply pressure, forcing senior keeper Trey Morton to make a save less than a minute after Leesville scored.

Broughton got some breathing room about midway through the half, though, when Mohamud took a pass from Wiredu down the right side and curled a beautiful shot inside the far post.

With a few of its players battling cramps, Broughton fought off several attacks by Leesville thanks to strong defense from juniors Hyu A and Grant Tyler and senior David Ridgeway. The final goal came with just under a minute remaining in the game, when senior Eli White drew a foul in the Leesville box. Gettinger converted the penalty kick to make the final score 4-1.

Ike Drooz
Earlier, the junior varsity team played Leesville to a 1-1 tie after the Caps' Donovan Nicholson converted a free kick late in the game.

Broughton's next game is Monday night at Millbrook.

Finally, a shout out to Broughton seniors Sean Betts and Sam Holden, for ably handling the announcing and time-keeping responsibilities for home games.

Soccer: Game cut short, ends in scoreless tie

The numbers didn't quite add up the way Broughton hoped Wednesday night, as they were unable to score against a visiting Clayton team in a 0-0 game that was called at halftime because of lightning.

The Caps hit the crossbar or post on three shots, had one goal called back because of an offsides penalty (one of several called against Broughton), failed to convert on repeated corner kicks, and missed just high or wide on countless other shots.

Elvis Wiredu
As the first half wound down, junior Elvis Wiredu finally put a shot on frame, forcing the Clayton keeper to make a nice save to preserve the shutout.

Clayton, meanwhile, only threatened Broughton's goal once -- on a free kick from just outside the box early in the first half.

Broughton's junior varsity team managed to get on the scoreboard in the early game, earning a 2-0 victory over the Comets. The first goal was scored by Jacob Hill, off assists by Luis Hernandez and William Hernandez. The second goal was scored by William Hernandez off an assist by Angel Sanchez.

The defense, led by sweeper Estaban Salinas, played strong throughout the game.

Finally, a shout-out to Broughton's new scoreboard, which featured photos of the players during introductions. Check it out at Thursday night's home game against Panther Creek.
