Wildcats earn 7th shutout
FAIR HAVEN -- Can anybody beat the Wildcats boys soccer team? So far, this season, that hasn’t happened. Heck, not one team has even scored a single goal on them in seven games. And the Twin Valley team also beat Springfield on Friday night to take top honors at the John Werner Tournament.
After an 8-0 victory over Fair Haven on Monday night, the Wildcats remain hot, and they don’t appear to be cooling down any time soon.
"The boys are feeling great," said Twin Valley coach Buddy Hayford. "Our passing is fairly good, but could be better. The team’s played three games in the last six days, so they’re a little burnt out, but they were still playing very well Monday."
Following a 20-minute shootout with Fair Haven, Eli Park buried the Wildcats’ initial goal off a Colin Lozito corner. Lozito would score his first goal in the 30th minute, with Justin Hicks on the assist from the corner.
It was 3-0 at the break, then Twin Valley would go on to score five more goals within eight minutes. Hayford said he can’t recollect the last time that has happened on his watch.
Cade Nesbitt had a sweet volley from seven yards out that sailed into the cage, and Lozito would score again on a Jacob Hicks feed. Dal Nesbitt scored in the 60th minute with help from Lozito, then the two did exactly the same thing for the team’s sixth goal.
Nick Nilsen put one away minutes later, and Keegan Reed would wrap the contest up with a goal of his own.
The 7-0 Wildcats will host Bellows Falls on Thursday at 6 p.m.
