The Central Cyclones continue to dominate in the High School Boys Soccer league after picking up a big 10-1 win over the Riverview/Cornerstone Royals on Monday afternoon at Gutheridge Field.
The Royals played some tough defence throughout the game, but especially early in the game. They trailed 4-0 at halftime with Augustine Kamara scoring three times for Central and Peter Ntigne picking up the other marker.
Central was able to open the game up a bit in the second half as Riverview/Cornerstone wore down thanks to having just nine players for the game. The Cyclones potted six goals in the second half to roll to the 10-1 win.
Ntigne scored two more to finish off the hat trick; Kamara added his fourth of the game; and Iram Adam, Said Ali and Ibrahim Ali all added singles in the win.
Desmond Morehouse was the lone goal scorer for the Royals.
All the teams are improving during in the first season of the Boys Soccer League and Royals head coach Jeff Kitts says he was happy with the team's play defensively, "The score didn't reflect probably the first two-thirds of the game. By the end they started to put it on offensively and they had a lot more chances as we wore down.
"We are playing better defensively, but now we need to get the ball moving offensively."
Central head coach Mike DeCorby says he wanted his team to work on playing wider offensively during the game, "That's one of the hardest things to get through to young guys is to spread out the play from side-to-side. They started to do it and I was glad to see they weren't trying to do too much individually."
The Boys Soccer League returns to Gutheridge Field on Wednesday with Vanier taking on Riverview/Cornerstone.
Girls action on Tuesday at Sunningdale Field has Central taking on Swift Current and Peacock battling Vanier.
